My name is Giuseppe and i'm from Italy, working in Pellegrino group,
and i'd like to Know if there are some news about etching pattern in ST9,
from the this last post on the argument (284025)
it seems not possible to create pattern from one etch.
we work with PVC sheet on cutting and drowing plotters and SE etchin function is enough
important for us.
ST9 still does not allow patterning of an Etch feature.
but might it be possible to "pattern" the geometry in the sketch and afterwards etch the complete sketch?
As @Grundey stated you cannot select by feature but I am able to pattern an Etch using the Body selection option while in the Pattern command.
Does that not produce usable results?
Yes, it appears not to have been "enhanced" [fixed] as yet in ST9......you still cannot make an etching, from a patterned sketch.
Unlike using that same patterned sketch for other operations, such as cutouts, with the "Select from sketch" filter.
