In general can you pattern from a part that are part of the pattern? (I am speaking English )
LOL. Yes, you are speaking English.
If you mean inside a part, then yes.....
You can take a rectangular pattern and then pattern that pattern.
You just have to make sure that you select the pattern as the patterning feature, and not the original feature.
If you make a rectangle pattern from another rectangle pattern with a pattern feature would it be possible to end up with a round pattern
Not exactly. A circular pattern will rotate the feature around an axis, while the rectangular pattern will translate the feature along an axis.
So, if your feature and pattern is symmetrical, then it will LOOK circular when you are done, but it won't be.
In the above picture, I have a rectangular pattern of Boss-Extrude2,
Then I rectangular pattern Lpattern1 to translate it to the other side of the block.
Then I created a circular pattern of Lpattern3 to place them onto the other two sides of the block.
John, I'll bet you punished your kids by putting them into a round room and telling them to sit in a corner!
I didn't tell them to sit..............
It is a joke right?
Last time it didn't work. Not sure why. I tried again and now it works. Thanks
Depends if the circular relationship will come around to bite you (I can sprechen Duetch)
I played with circular pattern and it did not work.
Yes, you can pattern a pattern. You can also mirror a pattern.
Although not really 100% related one thing you can't do is pattern a folder. (I think they should really add this functionality)
And just to see if I could, I tried a pattern of a pattern in assembly.
LocalLpattern1 is a pattern of the last component of the tree.
LocalLpattern2 is a pattern the upper right corner part that was part of the LocalLPattern1.
LocalLPattern3 is a pattern of LocalLpattern2.
