I need some advice and I'm sure there are some lateral thinkers out there that can help?
I want to be able to create a truss, similar to the image above, that can be varied in length and as the length grows, the area is filled with more uprights. I have designed this in frames, but that doesn't give me the option of having varied heights. Suppression variables only work, I think, with assy features or relationships.
Can anyone think of a way of controlling the number of uprights as the length of the frame is changed?
Solved! Go to Solution.
this is possible using the frame tool in ASM.
I remembered a similar question one year ago with a helix pattern of frames.
And so I would use the same method.
don't worry about the extrusion body in my master part.
This seems to be a bug in ST10 with no MP
One year ago with ST9 and in my old part it also was possible to pattern a curve only even if there is no volume present.
So the small extrusion only is a turnarround to activate the pattern command!
