More Inputs for Linear Patterns

You can specify more inputs to define the vector for Direction 1 and Direction 2 in part and assembly feature linear patterns.

In the Linear Pattern PropertyManager, you can use planar faces and surfaces, conical faces and surfaces, circular edges, and reference planes as inputs for Direction 1 and Direction 2.

Previously, you could only define a linear edge, sketch line, axis, or linear dimension as input.

Click Linear Pattern (Features toolbar) or Insert > Pattern/Mirror > Linear Pattern.
