Single Hole Pattern from sketch

Single Hole Pattern from sketch

Single Hole Pattern from sketch

Hello All,

Relatively new to Creo so could be a basic question for some.

I would like to construct a sketch driven point pattern to achieve the following in the drawing:

I can achieve the above with two separate pattern features but not with the desired sketch driven point pattern.

With a point driven sketch pattern I get the following in the drawing:

As you can see no PCD line or centre marks which are automatically created from an axis pattern.

I wanted to keep these holes under the same sketch, if this isn't possible I will have to revert to the 2 feature construct.

Hopefully someone can advise.


RE: Single Hole Pattern from sketch

Hi, you can change the drawing detail options, file > prepare > detail options. Look for radial pattern axis circle. Change to yes. This will only apply to that specific drawing. Or if your company do not like you changing detail options. You can sketch the pcd in drawing, make parametric to snap to one of the holes. Then right click on each hole axis and edit attachment, select the centre mark (pattern axis) and the hole centre line will orient toward the reference selected. Do same for all holes.
