Can anyone help me please?
I am trying to lay this shape out onto a 500mm square plate. The pattern I am after is on the DXF attached.
Can anyone guide me on how to move my shape around the plate please??
there are two ways to get Your requested pattern into Your part:
Voila that's it!
BTW: I always would suggest to group several features together first before patterning this group afterwards.
This always build a better and easier changeable feature, which could be modified easier too.
soory but I have forgotten the original method we have used here in the past:
You create the instance as single part (maybe positive than as cutout, and place this as part copy into YOur plate using different coordinate systems for placing.
And then do a boolean substract to cut them out!
thanks again, just seen the second post.
I came into the office just some minutes ago and went through the daily posts from the morning to the evening and started with this thread.
So sorry for my double posting here, but now - after Your hint - I have looked into this first/original post and I have seen that nobody suggested the PatternByTable method what was my first intention without knowing Your answers to the other duplicated post.
So maybe it could now be taken as additional method and way to achieve the wanted request.
