Hi Guys,

 

 I need a special pattern that varies the original sketch dim. Is this possible?

 

Thanks

Hi CAD-One,

 

You can right click on one of your patterned sketch object and then choose Edit Pattern to modify your sketch pattern, Then click the >> button in the lower right hand corner of the dialog box. Then uncheck the Associative checkbox. This will make them individual objects that can be edited individually. But they'll likely need to be dimensioned in place afterward to keep them from moving around.

 

Depending on the task at hand, there might be a better way using a feature pattern instead of sketch pattern, but maybe not.

 

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
Curtis

I changed the direction of the pattern to follow the angled edge.
