Anyone who can explain to my why the LPattern1 isn't going all the way to my reference point?
This one really had me scratching my head. Apparently the linear pattern does not like (or will not allow) sketches to be used for Ref Geometry. Sure would be nice if it let you know that.... I added a plane coincident to the endpoint of the line that you had an equal relationship on. This way if you change the dim on your seed feature it will update with that. Then I used the plane for the "up to reference". Now you get your 9 instances equally spaced.
I didn't down load the file, but in this case you could potentially also use the curve driven pattern (I know its not a curve but it still works)
Well I'll be darn Anton.. That does work.
Another idea may be to select the face on the opposite end of the part then do an equal in the offset box and select your .500 dim. Again, if you alter that dim the up to reference will update also.
