Square Part to be Patterned Along circular curve

[ Edited ]

I am trying to pattern a rectangular part around a Curve and i am not getting the desired result about the curve.

I even tried using the curve chord option in ST8 but still i am not getting the desired result.

It would really be great if any1 can help me in this regard.

I have attached the files for reference.

The spacing between the holes of two rectangular parts wuld be 15.88mm.

I am not able to attach my assembly file hence i am attaching an image of the result  i got.

 

 

Thanks,

Hi there,

 

Can you provide the assembly file that contains the curve you are trying to use for patterning....or a screen capture.

TY for your reply.

 

I already attached a screenshot of the result i am getting.

 

When i attach the assembly file i am getting the following error

"The attachment's temp.asm content type (application/octet-stream) does not match its file extension and has been removed.

Hi,

 

Unfortunately, you cannot use the new "Chord length" option here because of holes' distance.

 

But you can solve this in "three main steps".

I am getting the result as expected thanks to you.

 

Now my problem is i am not getting a closed pattern.

How do i close the pattern as you can see in the assembly i attached in the end it dosnt have value of 15.88mm.

Your help is much appreciated.

 

 

Thanks,
