How consistent is the pattern?
Can you Linear Pattern or do a Sketch Driven Pattern with the points?
You may need to do a couple patterns if the cylinder pattern is in 3 dimensions.
A design table might help?
I'll bet the guys in the API forum could create a macro to do what you want without working up a sweat. Try posting there to see.
Hello Jerry ,
You are correct. I learned all about the soildwork APIs this past few days and they do the trick. Thank you.
