Introduction

'Make a pattern from combinations of transformations' - This tool takes a set of one or more selected features as its input (the 'originals'), and allows to apply several transformations in sequence to them. For example, to produce a flange with a double row of holes, the hole (the 'original') is first patterned in a linear pattern in the X direction, and then patterned eight times in a polar pattern around the Y axis.

Options

Multitransfrom parameters.png

When creating a multitransform feature, the 'multitransform parameters' dialogue offers two different list views.

Select originals

The list view shows the 'originals', the features that are to be patterned. Clicking on any feature will add it to the list.

Select transformations

This list can be filled with a combination of the simple transformations mirrored, linear pattern, polar pattern and scaled. The transformations will be applied one after the other. The context menu offers the following entries:

Edit

Allows editing the parameters of a transformation in the list (double-clicking will have the same effect)

Delete

Removes a transformation from the list

Add transformation

Adds a transformation to the list

Move Up/Down

Allows changing the order of transformations in the list


Limitations

  • A scaled transformation should not be the first in the list
  • The scaled transformation must have the same number of occurrences as the transformation immediately preceding it in the list
  • For further limitations, see the linear pattern feature


Examples

c

The smallest pad was first patterned three times in X direction and then scaled to factor two (so the three occurrences have scaling factor 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0). Then a polar pattern was applied with 8 occurrences.

c

The pocket was first mirrored on the YZ plane and then patterned with two linear patterns to give a rectangular pattern.
