[NX8-HELP] ASSOCIACTIVE COPY 1 Associative Copy View a topic Pattern Feature Mirror Body Extract Body Instance Geometry Composite Curve Promote Body Mirror Feature Instance Feature 1. Pattern Feature Use the Pattern Feature command to create patterns of features (linear, circular, polygon, etc.) with various options for defining pattern boundaries, orientation of instances, clocking and variance.  You can create pattern features using a variety of pattern layouts. Linear Polygon Along Circular Spiral General Reference  You can fill a specified boundary with a pattern feature.  For a Linear layout, you can specify a Symmetric pattern in one or both directions. You can also specify to Stagger columns or rows. Associactive Copy drive24ward (meslab.org/mes) [NX8-HELP] ASSOCIACTIVE COPY 2  For a Circular or Polygon layout, you can choose to radiate a pattern.   You can define a Pattern Increment by using expressions to specify pattern parameters. You can export pattern parameter values to a spreadsheet and make positional edits that are propagated back to your pattern definition. You can explicitly select individual instance points for clocking, suppression and variance of pattern features.   You can control the orientation of a pattern. Orientation same as input Orientation follows pattern (circular)  You can choose between Simple and Variational pattern methods.

Extrude Coordinate system for Datum Coordinate System for Extrude Sketch External Reference for Extrude Sketch External Reference for Extrude 7. Use Preview → Show Result to check the pattern. Choose another command or click OK to create the pattern. Associactive Copy drive24ward (meslab.org/mes) [NX8-HELP] ASSOCIACTIVE COPY 1.7. 19 Pattern Feature dialog box Features to Pattern Lets you select one or more features to pattern. Select Feature Reference Point Lets you specify a location reference point for the input feature. Specify Point Pattern Definition Sets the pattern layout. There are seven available layouts. Linear – Defines a layout using one or two directions. Circular – Defines a layout using a rotation axis and optional radial spacing parameters. Polygon – Defines a layout using an equilateral polygon and optional radial spacing parameters. Layout Spiral – Defines a layout using a spiral path. Along – Defines a layout that follows a continuous curve chain and optionally a second curve chain or a vector. General – Defines a layout using locations defined by one or more target points or coordinate systems. Reference – Defines a layout by using an existing pattern. Boundary Definition Not available when Layout is set to Along, General, or Reference. Associactive Copy drive24ward (meslab.org/mes) [NX8-HELP] ASSOCIACTIVE COPY 20 None Does not define boundaries. Patterns are not restricted to boundaries. Face Lets you select face edges, sheet edges, or region boundary curves to define the pattern boundary. Curve Lets you select a set of curves, or create a sketch to define the pattern boundary. Boundary Exclude Lets you select curves or create a sketch to define an area that is excluded from patterning. Apply Margin to Internal Boundaries Available when Layout is set to Linear, Circular, Polygon or Spiral and Boundary is set to Face or Curve. Simplified Boundary Fill Displays the Simplified Layout subgroup of options that you can use to fill the specified boundary with instances. The available options depend on the Layout option that you select. You do not need to input as much information to create the instances. Linear layout Associactive Copy Lets you form a grid for the simplified linear layout pattern, using the Square, Triangle, or Diamond options on the Layout list. The drive24ward (meslab.org/mes)
