Parameters

FlipDir1
True flips the direction of the first direction, false does not
Num1
Number of instances in the first direction, including the original instance
EqualSpacing1
True uses equal spacing between instances in the first direction, false does not
Spacing1
Distance between pattern instances along the curve in the first direction when EqualSpacing1 is set to false
ReferencePoint
Type of selected reference point as defined in swLocalCurvePatternReferencePoint_e (see Remarks)
CurveMethod
Curve method as defined in swLocalCurvePatternCurveMethod_e
AlignMethod
Alignment method as defined in swLocalCurvePatternAlignment_e
Direction2
True creates the pattern in the second direction, false does not
FlipDir2
True flips the direction of the second direction, false does not
Num2
Number of instances in the second direction
EqualSpacing2
True uses equal spacing between instances in the second direction, false does not
Spacing2
Distance between pattern instances along the curve in the second direction when EqualSpacing2 is set to false
PatternSeedOnly
True replicates only the seed pattern, which was created under Direction 1, under Direction 2; false replicates all instances of the curve pattern, which was created under Direction 1, under Direction 2

Return Value

Local curve pattern feature

Example

Use a mark of...

Components to pattern

1

Curve, edge, sketch, or sketch entity for Direction 1

2

Curve, edge, sketch, or sketch entity for Direction 2

4

Reference point for ReferencePoint

NOTE: If ReferencePoint is set to swLocalSketchPatternReferencePoint_e.swLocalSketchPatternSelectedPoint, then the selected reference point must be a vertex.
