On the circular pattern i used 10 increments @ 300 degrees....why does the 10th increment not line up at the 10th position...have i got the maths wrong?

 

Please see attached

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,
Curtis
