DriveWorks Solo 15: Linear Pattern [send feedback...]

Introduction

This document describes the types of rules that can be applied to models that have advanced feature parameters captured.

Driving advanced feature dimensions increases model generation time. Where possible capture feature dimensions (distances, numbers and angles) as dimensions rather than an advanced feature parameter.

During model generation captured dimensions are driven before captured advanced feature parameters. If the advanced feature parameter has also been captured as a dimension the value being driven into the advanced feature parameter will override the captured dimension.

Linear Pattern

ParameterTypeDescription
D1ReverseDirectionTrue/FalseSet the direction 1 pattern to propagate in the opposite direction
D1SpacingDistanceSet the space between instances in direction 1
D1PatternQtyIntegerSet the number of pattern instances in direction 1
D2PatternSeedOnlyTrue/FalseSets whether to create a pattern in direction 2 using the seed features only, without replicating the pattern instances of direction 1
D2ReverseDirectionTrue/FalseSet the direction 2 pattern to propagate in the opposite direction
D2SpacingDistanceSet the space between instances in direction 2
D2PatternQtyIntegerSet the number of pattern instances in direction 2
SkippedItemArrayPipe delimited string i.e. "1|-7|5|-54"Set the list of instances to skip
GeometryPatternTrue/FalseSet the pattern to only replicate faces and vertices to reduce computation time
PropagateVisualPropertiesTrue/FalseSet the pattern to propagate visual data such as cosmetic threads or part colours
VarySketchTrue/FalseAllow the sketch to vary from one pattern instance to the next
