    Pattern creation

    Dusty Kirschmann

      Let me start off by appolgizing.  I am no where near an expert or anything in solidworks.  Please excuse the title if it doesnt represent my question well enough.


      I was wondering if there was a way to make a partern like the side of a shipping contaniner.  Instead of modeling that out every time I was hoping there was an easy way to create the pattern and then I can tell it how long and high I need it to create different size containers.  If this makes sense at all.


      Here is a picture of the side I need.  I am looking for a simple way to model this trailer but then be able to make other sizes as well.  The company is looking to have a model made of them so I wanted to model it the best I could. https://scontent-a-ord.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xaf1/t1.0-9/1005430_10151769140407288_489741088_n.jpg
