SOLIDWORKS does not support currently the patterning of coordinate systems.
What most users would benefit from is a tool that would follow this workflow:
- existing coordinate system
- a direction (edge or sketched line). Even better if the direction can be driven also by a plane or planar face (normal to the selected entity).
- "S" = spacing (integer)
- "N" = number of instances (integer)
- N new coordinate system, equally spaced as per "S" in the direction specified by the selected entity.
Can you imagine how much time you would save mating? I know a user who would save about 2 hours a day!!!
Do you know if such a macro exists?
