New and changed functionality

Complete redesign of the assembly mate API

Complete redesign of the pattern feature API

  • The new design allows you to create a pattern feature with a smaller subset of parameters and then extend or modify it using a pattern-specific feature data object.
  • The following pattern features (pattern-specific feature data objects) are affected by this redesign:
    • Chain component (IChainPatternFeatureData)
    • Circular (ICircularPatternFeatureData)
    • Circular component (ILocalCircularPatternFeatureData)
    • Curve-driven (ICurveDrivenPatternFeatureData)
    • Curve-driven component (ILocalCurvePatternFeatureData)
    • Derived-driven (IDerivedPatternFeatureData)
    • Fill (IFillPatternFeatureData)
    • Linear (ILinearPatternFeatureData)
    • Linear component (ILocalLinearPatternFeatureData)
    • Sketch-driven (ISketchPatternFeatureData)
    • Sketch-driven component (ILocalSketchPatternFeatureData)
    • Table (ITablePatternFeatureData)
    • Variable/Dimension (IDimPatternFeatureData)
  • IFeatureManager::CreateDefinition and IFeatureManager::CreateFeature now supersede the following pattern feature creation methods:
    • IAssemblyDoc::InsertDerivedPattern
    • IFeatureManager::FeatureAdvancedTableDrivenPattern
    • IFeatureManager::FeatureChainPattern
    • IFeatureManager::FeatureCircularPattern5
    • IFeatureManager::FeatureFillPattern
    • IFeatureManager::FeatureLinearPattern5
    • IFeatureManager::FeatureLocalCurveDrivenPattern
    • IFeatureManager::FeatureLocalSketchDrivenPattern
    • IFeatureManager::FeatureSketchDrivenPattern
    • IFeatureManager::InsertDerivedPattern2
    • IFeatureManager::InsertTableDrivenPattern2
    • IModelDoc2::FeatureCurvePattern 
  • Get or set more properties on linear, linear component, and circular component pattern features. See ILinearPatternFeatureData, ILocalLinearPatternFeatureData, and ILocalCircularPatternFeatureData in New methods, properties, and delegates.
