You must click the Padlock, to 'unlock' it, before you can add or remove elements.
There are two boxes.
These are the 'Source Pattern Elements. They include that you want to Pattern.
Solids you can pattern include:
|•||Imported Solids - SOLIDWORKS and STL files. |
To add Solids to the 'Pattern Elements' box:
Click - in the Assembly-Tree or the graphic-area:
|2.||CAD-Lines onto which a Solid has been imported |
If the motion of the Solids is linear - when they move at constant velocity - then the Solids will show at equal positions. There is no need to select a Motion elements.
If the motion of the Solids is not linear, then Solids will 'bunch-up' at machine angles when the Solids move slowly, and they will 'stretch-out' when they move quickly.
Motion FBs you select will linearize the pattern's positions.
To add Motion FB to the 'Motions to Linearize' box:
|1.||Click a Motion FB in the Assembly-Tree or the graphic-area. |
To remove elements from the boxes.
|1.||Click an element in the Pattern Elements or Motion to Linearize box |
|2.||Click the 'Remove Solid' or the 'Remove Motion FB' icon at the top of the Pattern Elements separator.|
The Padlock icon:
To make sure you do not add more Solids or Motion FBs while you edit your model:
|1.||Click the Padlock, to lock it |
