Hi 

 

Does anyone know if it possible to create a circlular pattern in ST of a hole on the circumference of a cylinder.

In ordered, I created the hole and then created the pattern as shown above.

 

In ST, I get the wrong orientation of the pattern plane and can't seem to change it:

Anyone with a bright idea?

Hi @Alan,

 

Seems to work here....if you mouse over the edge to get the center, the pattern can be placed there......

Don't worry Sean, I was having a blond moment! I left the F3 / plane lock on.
