Get model coordinates of pattern elements

Hi All,

 

I'm finding it difficult to get the model coordinates of center points of holes created using circular pattern feature. It will be really helpful to me if anyone could suggest a solution for this issue

I do not see a way to get an X|Y matrix.

 

You would need to interogate the pattern type and inputs and do the math yourself...

 

But maybe using the Draft's Hole Table might be a solution.

Hi @Admin2,

@MattJohnson_PG is right. In principle there are no point cooridinates for a hole pattern exept the 2D Profile of the pattern definition.

The holes only have center axis that you could intersect with some plane to get points...
