2010 Solid Edge Productivity Summit: Synchronous Patterning

  1. 1. 2010 Productivity SummitSynchronous patterning<br />
  2. 2. Synchronous Patterning<br />Enhanced Patterning<br />Rectangular Patterning<br />Fill Patterning<br />Suppressing Instances<br />Patterning along a curve<br />
  3. 3. Synchronous Pattern<br /><ul><li>Patterning defaults to “Fit” in all cases
  4. 4. Patterns are initially created to default parameters, then the user can manipulate the pattern using dynamic edit controls and/or the steering wheel and drag points
  5. 5. Defaults:
  6. 6. Rectangular count is 3X3
  7. 7. Circular count default is 4 instances/360 degrees</li></li></ul><li> Synchronous Pattern<br /><ul><li>Once the preview of the pattern is shown, the user can reorient the pattern in 90° increments by selecting the bearing points on the steering wheel</li></li></ul><li> Synchronous Pattern<br /><ul><li>Alternately the user can select a red dot and drag the pattern, as desired, on the part to resize and reposition</li></li></ul><li> Synchronous Pattern<br /><ul><li>Clicking the torus allows the user to change the angle of the pattern
  8. 8. Clicking the origin of the steering wheelallows the user to reposition the origin for the pattern relative to the feature</li></li></ul><li> Synchronous Pattern<br /><ul><li>Users can click on a face or a PMI dimension, of an occurrence instance and initiate a synchronous change that will affect all instances</li></li></ul><li> Synchronous Pattern<br /><ul><li>User can use QuickPick to select a Pattern Occurrence to adjust the entire pattern on the part</li></li></ul><li> Synchronous Pattern<br /><ul><li>If the parent of the pattern feature is constrained dimensionally,or through a ground constraint, a synchronous move can also be used to “stretch” the pattern</li></li></ul><li><ul><li>Use the “Suppress Option” in the QuickBar
  9. 9. Selecting the green dot of an instance of the pattern suppresses that occurrence
  10. 10. After it is suppressed, selecting the red dot of the instance un-suppresses that occurrence
  11. 11. Reset turns all instances back to shown
  12. 12. The master occurrence cannot be suppressed</li></ul>Patterning – Suppress Instance<br />
  13. 13. <ul><li>A sketch must exist in the model for the region of instances to be suppressed
  14. 14. A flip arrow determines if the selectedregion is what to keep or what to suppress</li></ul>Patterning – Suppress Region<br />
  15. 15. Demo – Pattern Workflow/Rectangular Pattern<br />
  16. 16. <ul><li>There is a new Fill Pattern option in ST2
  17. 17. Parameters used to define the fill area is a Region defined by a face on the part or by sketch elements</li></ul> Fill Patterning<br />
  18. 18. <ul><li>The sketch elements that defined the region are copied to the profile of the Pattern Feature
  19. 19. If the face of the part was used as the region, the edges of the faceare copied as the pattern profile</li></ul> Fill Patterning<br />
  20. 20. <ul><li>The Fill Pattern option supports filling multiple regions
  21. 21. Regions can be disjoint</li></ul> Fill Patterning<br />
  22. 22. Demo – Fill Pattern<br />
  23. 23. <ul><li>In the Fill Pattern QuickBar, the user can choose the option to create a Radial Fill Pattern
  24. 24. Options for Target Spacing or Instance Count</li></ul>Fill Pattern – More Options<br />Target Spacing<br />Instance Count<br />
  25. 25. Fill Pattern – More Options<br /><ul><li>Instance Count
  26. 26. Dynamic Edit Controls (DEC)for the spacing between the “rings” (30.00 mm)
  27. 27. DEC for Count, which is the number of instances to be equally spaced on each ring
  28. 28. By default the orientationof the occurrences is maintained as they are patterned</li></li></ul><li>Fill Pattern – More Options<br /><ul><li>Selecting the primary bearing and rotating the steering wheel rotates the occurrences position about the origin of the pattern
  29. 29. The first row of the pattern is ALWAYS aligned along the primary axis
  30. 30. Shift + Click the primary bearing to get access to the angle control to specify a specific angle to rotate the pattern
  31. 31. Occurrences remain equally spaced andmaintain their orientation</li></li></ul><li>Fill Pattern – More Options<br /><ul><li>Target Spacing
  32. 32. DEC for the spacing between the “rings” (30.00 mm)</li></li></ul><li>Fill Pattern – More Options<br /><ul><li>DEC for the target spacing between the instance origins(40.00 mm)
  33. 33. Because this is a Fill pattern, the actual distance between the instances is calculated to keep them equally spaced around each ring
  34. 34. The first row of the pattern is ALWAYS aligned along the primary axis</li></li></ul><li>Fill Pattern – More Options<br /><ul><li>In certain cases it may be desirable to have all occurrences orient consistently with respect to the center of the pattern
  35. 35. The Center Orient functionality, when enabled, reorients the occurrences
  36. 36. Matches the parent feature orientation relative to the secondary axis</li></ul>Center Orientation enabled<br />Center Orientation disabled<br />
  37. 37. Fill Pattern – More Options<br /><ul><li>Selecting the primary bearing and rotating the primary axis rotates the occurrences and their orientation relative to the parent feature
  38. 38. Matches the parent feature orientation relative to the secondary axis</li></li></ul><li>Fill Pattern – More Options<br /><ul><li>Selecting the secondary bearing and rotating the secondary axis maintains the position of the pattern, but changes the orientation of the instances
  39. 39. Matches the parent feature orientation relative to the secondary axis</li></li></ul><li>Fill Pattern – More Options<br /><ul><li>Works the same with Target Spacing radial pattern</li></li></ul><li>Demo – Fill Pattern (Radial)<br />
  40. 40. Patterning – Along Curve<br /><ul><li>Instances can be removed or reintroduced by the option in QuickBar
  41. 41. Same as Circular and Rectangular Patterns
  42. 42. Additional option to offset occurrence placement
  43. 43. Similar options as in V20/ST
  44. 44. Advanced Options for Pattern Along Curve available from QuickBar
  45. 45. Similar options as in V20/ST
  46. 46. Just like other Pattern types, the user can add geometry to the patternon edit</li></li></ul><li> Patterning – Along Curve<br /><ul><li>Pattern Along Curve
  47. 47. After selecting geometry to pattern, the first step is to define the Curve using single or chain option from the command bar
  48. 48. Second step is to define the Anchor Point
  49. 49. Third step is to specify direction
  50. 50. Curve will change if the angle of the part changes</li></li></ul><li> Patterning – Along Curve<br /><ul><li>Fit Pattern type
  51. 51. Value field for Count is displayed</li></li></ul><li> Patterning – Along Curve<br /><ul><li>Fill Pattern type
  52. 52. Value field for Spacing is displayed</li></li></ul><li> Patterning – Along Curve<br /><ul><li>Fixed Pattern type
  53. 53. Value field for Count is displayed
  54. 54. Value field for Spacing is displayed</li></li></ul><li> Patterning – Along Curve<br /><ul><li>The Master Pattern Occurrence can be redefined with the option in QuickBar
  55. 55. Select the green dot representing the new location in the pattern for the Master Pattern Occurrence
  56. 56. Pattern updates relative to the new MPO</li></li></ul><li> Patterning – Along Curve - Options<br /><ul><li>Two other options: From Surface and From Plane
  57. 57. From Surface means : Keeping all faces of the feature normal to the selected surface
  58. 58. The orientation of the feature will be Full
  59. 59. So what is the difference? (next slide)</li>
