ST9 Etch Pattern !

Hello everybody!

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.

 

tahnks everyone

ST9 still does not allow patterning of an Etch feature.

Re: ST9 Etch Pattern !

Hi,

 

 

but might it be possible to "pattern" the geometry in the sketch and afterwards etch the complete sketch?

Re: ST9 Etch Pattern !

Not possible, i tried!
the "patterned" geometry is not a true geometry, it seems like projections not selectable for etch..

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?

Regards,

Jason

Re: ST9 Etch Pattern !

Jason thank you very much for your help and your patience!
actually it was necessary for me a pattern to use when i export the sheetmetal in a .dxf file
and i ave to put it on an established layer,
but when i go in flat pattern mode the etch pattern behaves as a normal sketch.

however, many thanks for the help

Hi  @pellegrinosrl ,

 

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. Robot Indifferent
