Curved Pattern??

Hi~ Users

 

I thought ID would be gone by the end of October.
It's still okay.

Let me ask you a question.
I want to use the curve pattern ...
The patterned shape ...
It is not patterned as the originally drawn shape.

I think the depth is different ...
How do you make it look like a pattern?

Hi @Hclee

 

 

 

may I ask what Your goal is?

 

Should it be equal to the master or should every instance have a different depth?

Hi @Hclee

 

 

 

is it this what You are looking for?

 

 

I did another cut to show the section and put a sketch to it, showing that all pattern alements are equal

Awesome. But it is strange.
Sounds like you're like me. Why did not I ...?
Was the path part a problem?

Hi @Hclee

 

 

no I don't think this is a matter of like or no like, simply over 30 years with CAD.

 

The IMHO key issue here was the definition of Your pattern curve.

You only selected the arc on the right but not the line where the original master cutout resides.

So Your reference point is apporx. 20mm away from the cutout and takes this offset for later placement.

This might result in an inadequate positioning of every pattern instance.

 

What have I done?

 

I have created a line (sketch) to split the plane where the master cutout is located.

Now a have a shorter line and the arc as driving curve for patterning.

And now the start/reference point is exact at the cutout center position.

Using this start point and orientation will  of course result in an correct position of any pattern instance.

This - simply it is!

Nothing more and no miracle or magic
