I've been trying to pattern a pillar with the top surface domed. My design involves many concentric rings of these pillars, and I've been able to pattern the first/inner most circle of the pillars, but when I tried to pattern the next ring with the same method, it gave me an error.
I selected both the loft and the dome features and then clicked on the circular pattern tool. The preview appears exactly how I want it, but when I try to complete the action an error pops up (see the attached screenshot).
Any help you could offer would be much appreciated.
Welcome to the forum. Without more information it will be difficult to diagnose the problem, but my guess would be that you have Features to Pattern selected instead of Bodies to Pattern. See #21 at Frequently Asked Forum Questions for more information.
