Ok now that is just not cool....

 

Because the first link and second link are touching is the reason it is not working even though the 1st one I made years ago are the same feature as this new one it does not like it when it touches and this is the reason for the error.

 

Why would you mess this one up Autodesk I don't care if they touch.

 

Now I will have to take time to make new link feature so they don't touch.. Ugh time = money >>> Autodesk= less money....

To add to the mess it only errors out on the circular patterns not the rectangular Pattern...

 

I even remade the one from a few years ago well just the circular pattern part and it does not error why is that does it remember the days when it worked?

Hi! For this particular case, the same error occurs if you do the same operation on R2013. Inventor seems to have trouble merging the faces when patterning the features in an angle. I will forward this case to development for further investigation. In the meantime, you might want to use Pattern a Solid option, instead of Pattern Feature option to make it work.

Thanks!
