Retangular pattern with one of the axis by 1 should do it or a pattern along curve...  and use a straight line as the curve...

 

???

 

seems to easy?  is that all that you are asking or am i missing your intent? 

 

can you show an image of what your desired output is?

@Aeroeng  ok yes,  this is basic patterning..  nothing special...

 

Take a look at the SE HELP:   https://docs.plm.automation.siemens.com/tdoc/se/109/se_help#uid:featb3a

Hi @MattJohnson_PG

 

the patterning in SE is the most annoying command I met ( Ordered Environment ) and not easy to learn and understand.

I am not using this commmand often, maybe a few times a year and every time I have to dig for information to remember how to use it.

 

Tricky one,

 

cheers,

Hi @arekkul

 

 

maybe it is hard to learn by Yourself but if understand it once, I think You will see the rich possiblities of SE patterning.

Even in orderd mode

 

If You once have seen what fixed, fill and fit pattern will do for You, how easy and wonderful the Stagger option will work for You, You not longer will see pattern as something strange and bad, I think it will be the oposite.

 

But again, this is my private, personal opinion with less knowledge about other software packages and about their capabilies.

 

I only have heard, the last time two days ago, how complex and complicated it will be to get something like a fill pattern in other products at the market.

I have big problems with the pattern command.

 

#1 you cant change the pattern after it has been created

#2 the process to create is long, and since no editing can happen afterwods, you have to get through the entire process without any mis-clicks.

 

I bring this up because I could be missing something or a way to edit the pattern later.

You certainly can change the pattern later.

Hi @12GAGE

 

 

changing everything from a pattern is easy to achieve.

 

You either can go to the variable table and change the pattern parameters, as long as the change will be a numerical one only.

 

Or You go to the pattern feature into the Profile environment, select the pattern sketch (rectangle or circle) 

what will offer You the full possibilities of pattern options and settings.
