Can't you pattern the pattern feature not the pattterned bodies?
If it was solid it would work but it's pattern of structural members and unfortunatelly it does't.
well thats lame.
well you could loop through all of the bodies and find ones that match the LPattern name and [Index} like
Dim LPtrnName as string 'Lets say PatternedThings
go through all bodies
if body.name.Contains(LPtrnName) then
'add to selected bodies
you will also have to get the root patterned body which is the original member
i feel like cutlist items may help here.
please attach the model for me to review ok.
It's been a while since I was here last time. Thanks I did exactly this way and it works.
