Such a conundrum Maha. When the angle is 360, SolidWorks divides the angle by the number of instances. When the angle is less than 360, SolidWorks divides the angle by number of instances - 1. So for 360 : 360/2 = 180 For 180: 180/(2-1) = 180. Try putting in 359 and see what you get; maybe it will make sense then.
