Circular Patterns

You can include a second direction with the option to make the spacing and instance count symmetric to the first pattern direction.

To specify a second direction for circular patterns:

  1. In an assembly, click Linear Component Pattern > Circular Component Pattern (Assembly toolbar) or Insert > Component Pattern > Circular Pattern.
  2. In the PropertyManager, specify options for Direction 2:
      Direction 2 Enables Direction 2 options.
      Symmetric Creates a symmetrical pattern from the seed feature.
      Equal Spacing Sets Angle to 360°.
    Angle Specifies the angle between each instance.
    Number of instances Specifies the number of instances of the seed feature.
