Creating a Pattern Driven Component Pattern

You can create a pattern of components based on an existing pattern.

To use an existing pattern to create a pattern of components:

  1. Click Linear Component Pattern > Pattern Driven Component Pattern (Assembly toolbar) or Insert > Component Pattern > Pattern Driven.
  2. Select the seed components for Components to Pattern .
  3. Click in Driving Feature or Component and select the pattern feature in the FeatureManager design tree or a face of a pattern instance in the graphics area.
  4. To change the seed position, click Select Seed Position and select a different pattern instance as the seed feature in the graphics area.
  5. To skip instances:
    1. Click in Instances to Skip .
    2. In the graphics area, click the pink selection orb for the instance.

    Skipped by Driving Feature lists instances skipped by the driving feature pattern or component pattern.

  6. Optional: Under Options, enable Propagate component level visual properties.
  7. Click .
    The new components appear under DerivedLPattern or DerivedCirPattern in the FeatureManager design tree.

    By default, all instances use the same configuration as the seed components. To change the configuration, edit the component properties of an instance.
