Since I used Autodesk Inventor 2013 last year, I had an question about numbering en renumbering the count of elements in patterns.
I had an assembly with iLogic for placing and replacing elements, suppressing parts and edit dimensions of parts in 1 assembly. Sometimes, 1 suppressed pattern must be un-suppressed. Before doing this, I would like to set the pattern count and distances between pattern elements in the pattern. How can I do it by using iLogic?
If someone can help I am very appreciated !

The way I do this is by creating some parameters for the pattern.
Create the parameters: HoleNumber : (ul) , HoleSpacing : (mm)
In the pattern function link the pattern number to the parameter: HoleNumber and the spacing to HoleSpacing.
Now it's possible to change the parameters from within an iLogic Rule.
Difficult procedure to write down, hope you understand this. Otherwise let me know.
