I am making beam parts in SW 2015; these beams need to have holes in them, depending on the length of the beam (I'm not looking to automatically tie the number of holes to the beam length yet). I want to control all the sizing parameters of this beam through a design table. How do I go about controlling the pattern parameters? I looked at this topic: (Linear Pattern Instance Control in Design Tables | MySolidWorks) but I can't correctly double-click on anything that I can find. What am I missing? Thanks in advance for any help!
...and as usual, I figured it out right after posting. I had to SINGLE-CLICK on the pattern in the tree (that was driving me nuts, I thought I had to double-click THERE), then the instance numbers popped up on the screen on top of my design (and nearly impossible to see, I might add..). Calling these parameters "dimensions" is really misleading!
