Macro for patterning coordinate systems

Question asked by Alin Vargatu on Jul 28, 2016

SOLIDWORKS does not support currently the patterning of coordinate systems.

 

What most users would benefit from is a tool that would follow this workflow:

 

Input:

- 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)

 

Output:

- 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?
