    Having problem with Curve Driven Pattern Feature

    Marcus Wieland

      I'm getting the following error in Solidworks 2012

       

      "All segments of the profile must be tangential and they should be of one contour only."

       

      Here's a picture that shows the path and feature I'm trying to run along the path.

      The only way I've been able to do it so far is one segment at a time.  If you look at the circles in different parts you;ll see the spacing between them is slightly different form segment to segment.  I was them all the flow evenly around that one path.  I've seen other people do it without a problem with paths similar in dynamics and complexity, the only thing I think could be causing a problem is the sharp corners.  Does anybody know what's causing that message and how I can work around it?...  Thanks in advance.
