Help with a pattern controlled with iLogic

Hello Inventors, 

 

I have an issue that I need help on and that is I have a pattern of holes (exactly 3) on an object and when the object height changes so does the pattern base on height. My issue is that i need to create a rule or code that ensures that apart from the first hole (which is fixed), the remaining two holes are at a location that is divisible by 6. The reason being that this is a sheet metal part and our punch press has a template for aligning punches at every 6 IN. We are using iLogic to automate some of our designs and the code is needed to eliminate having to worry if the punches are at the correct location for faster production. I have raked my brain over this one, if anyone has help on this it would be greatly appreciated! Thank You!

If you could provide one image or model for more details about your concern, it should be more helpful for us to investigate it.

Thanks,

Just imagine a piece of flat stock steel that is "X" by "Y", and I have a pattern running along the "Y" distance. The starting point in the pattern is fixed at 6" from the edge of the flat stock. I will have iLogic code adjusting the pattern but my issue is that when the spacing is determined, the location of the remaining points in the pattern have to be a multiple of 6

Based on the details from you, I created one part with iLogic rule. Please take a look. And you could update the parameters "Height", "Gap" and "Space" for more result.

 

Hope it helpful for you!
