Fill pattern, maximum number of instances

Question asked by Steve Fraser on Nov 18, 2018

Hi guys,


I'm wondering if there is a way to use the "Fill Pattern" feature (or if there is another feature which can do this) to create the maximum number of instances within a defined area.


For example (below) i wish to have the maximum number of holes possible within the blue dotted area. I still need to be able to set a minimum spacing and a minimum clearance/margin to the outside but I have no requirement for the pattern to be regular. For example if the top left hole was to move across to the right and down (green arrow) then there would be space for another hole (orange) above it.


Is there any function to do this?
