    CIrcular Pattern does not let me select bodies, only features

    Steven Bissey

      Recently upgraded from SolidWorks 2014 Premium to 2015 Premium SP 1.1

      Latest issue is Circular Pattern does not work on Bodies, only Features.

      I have attached a picture of the Circular Pattern Property Manager, you can see the space beside the "Bodies" label has no check box. Only the "Features and Faces" has a check box.

      If I create a solid or surface and want to array it around an axis, when I try to select the body, nothing happens, or it goes to the Features box, which then gives me an error saying"wrong type.."


      I called my VAR tech support, tried a few things, nothing. His recommendations was repair the installation, then check. I did this, no change.

      Final suggestion was a re-install of 2015 from scratch.


      SO , I am asking here first incase someone else has had the same problem.
