Hi  simon_toaldo,


You'll need to adjust for the angle of the extrusion, to consider the pattern start point. Here I've created a driven dimension called d67, which has a value of 1.59 degrees and then I subtracted that from the 300 degrees in the pattern.


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