Pattern disappears after moving a face

Hi Edgers,

 

 

just found a very serious problem with ST10-MP02 in PSM.

 

 

I have created a small and easy PSM part for testing the auto-jog issue mentioned in another thread.

 

I have created a single hole and patterned it by a line with fixed vaues.

So far no problem.

 

Then - this was a different issue for me today - I have created a flange on one side.

So far no problam anyhow.

 

But - and this is the bug/problem/issue - I moved this flange by a small value and - wow - the pattern was gone!

Away, no info about, just up and away!

 

See video:

 

(view in My Videos)

 

 

Is this something what has to do with ST10, MP02 or can it reproduced with any other version/MP of Solid Edge?

 

 



regards
Wolfgang

Hi @hawcad,

 

I just made a synch sheetmetal part of the same typical design, and was able to modify the tab, without issue.

 

EDIT: I just spotted a difference in mine, where I used a sketch to define the pattern. Can you try that, and see if it works.....as it maybe that will help point to what the underlying issue is.

Hi @SeanCresswell

 

 

 

good eye and indeed this is the main reason.

 

I just changed the flange and put it on the other side, where no further problems occured after modifying it.

 

So - clear for me, but not understandble - during the change of this edge I change the base for the linear pattern, and therefore the pattern get corrupt.

On the other hand, this edge only is used for giving the direction, not more, and we are talking about synchronous.

Synchronous where no history should be there, where no relations to existing geometry should be in the depth of topology data.

 

Is a change in length of a line enough reason to delete a pattern?

 

Is this as it should be or is it a bug - this is the question!

 

Anyway, many thanks to bring me to the right direction.
