Hi to everyone
I have a question. How can we handle an asymmetric linear pattern?
Thank you for your time in advance
Please could you give a more detailed example of what you're looking for.
Depending on your need, you can use Vary Sketch Patterns or Varying Dimension Patterns
What Deepak said.
Depending on need, can also put seed feature in center and just do two linear pattern features in opposite directions.
Thank you for your answers
Let me give you an example
In a square body i want to put three or more holes in a row ,not with equal distance (e.g every 100mm ) but with different distance (e.g 1st 100mm, 2nd 120mm, 3rd 250 and so on...Ιt is possible to do that with the linear pattern feature or else it can be done with different method?, and how!
Sorry about that but i forgot to mention that the dimensions of the square body is parameterized
sketch driven pattern. make a sketch with points to drive the pattern.

It can be done using inside linear pattern using Varying Dimension Patterns
Check attached video
Thank you for the video ,it was very usefull
Another option is to use a Variable Pattern
Whats quite nice is we can adjust multiple 'things' all at once.. and get all the dimensions available in equations
The Variable Pattern is one of the latest in SolidWorks 80/20 implementations: They get part of the functionality right and leave the rest for later. For simplistic stuff like you show here on a flat plate, yeah, it works ok. But for something like this, where you're trying to pattern something around an irregular shape, and the control the rotation of the patterned group of features around a different axis, it doesn't work. In the following example taken from the Mastering SolidWorks book, the direction only works for 180 degrees of the pattern, and beyond that it flips. On this example, I was patterning the flower around a lofted bottle, and each pattern instance of the flower was rotated slightly so you could see the control. But once you'd get it so far around the bottle, the whole pattern would just flip. Another example of SW's overall "vertigo" flipping issue, and also another example of releasing features that aren't quite ready for the real world.
So I'd avoid the variable pattern if you can. If you have a simple planar pattern, use the sketch driven pattern. It's simple and it works.
The variable pattern leaves a lot to be desired, but it's still a really powerful feature.
.. you're basically looping through your tree.
It's the best way I've come up with yet for models like these half lapped boards that decrease in width and have random tapers
For the flowers you show, you should check out my configuration pattern technique.

Thank you very much Rod for your advice
