    Macro for patterning coordinate systems

    Alin Vargatu

      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?
