How to flip direction of a circular pattern?

Pioneer

Pretty simple question I think...After I've already created a circular pattern, how do I flip the direction (CW vs. CCW)?  The "Flip" button has to do with suppression region occurences.

Reason would be if I'm only doing a partial circle.

Hi there @Srypstra,

 

That "direction" step is consumed after placement......just re-do it, and make your direction [opposite] as desired.

Not ideal, I know....this would be a good ER [Ehancement Request], to your VAR or to GTAC, if you have direct access that way.

 

Alternatively, you could use a pattern "Along Curve", and re-define that as much as you like, after the fact.

Probably easiest is in the sketch profile step, use the Mirror element command (make sure to turn Copy option off) to mirror the other way.

Oh yeah, @KennyG is spot on...I forgot about being able to modify the pattern sketch.

 

Something about, not seeing the wood, for all the trees.... Robot wink
