it is a 90 deg bend and the hole pitch i require is 100mm. however the circular pattern tool is asking me for the pitch in degrees and im unsure of how to do this, does anyone have a calculation i can use for future ?
angle = (360x100)/(Pix1600)=
This assumes your Pitch is the arc length and not chord length.
I would use Solidworks Equations and link my circular pattern to the equation. Using a similar formula to what J. Mather proposed
You could create a sketch like the one J. Mather posted, with the 7.16..... a driven dimension, create a global variable linked to that dimension, then use the global variable for your pattern.
