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.
|D1ReverseDirection||True/False||Set the direction 1 pattern to propagate in the opposite direction|
|D1Spacing||Distance||Set the space between instances in direction 1|
|D1PatternQty||Integer||Set the number of pattern instances in direction 1|
|D2PatternSeedOnly||True/False||Sets whether to create a pattern in direction 2 using the seed features only, without replicating the pattern instances of direction 1|
|D2ReverseDirection||True/False||Set the direction 2 pattern to propagate in the opposite direction|
|D2Spacing||Distance||Set the space between instances in direction 2|
|D2PatternQty||Integer||Set the number of pattern instances in direction 2|
|SkippedItemArray||Pipe delimited string i.e. "1|-7|5|-54"||Set the list of instances to skip. (Setting this to 0 will clear the selection and no items will be skipped)|
|GeometryPattern||True/False||Set the pattern to only replicate faces and vertices to reduce computation time|
|PropagateVisualProperties||True/False||Set the pattern to propagate visual data such as cosmetic threads or part colours|
|VarySketch||True/False||Allow the sketch to vary from one pattern instance to the next|
