Pattern tool in Creo Parametric is a versatile tool because it can make your designing process very easy and efficient. with just few clicks we can create bunch of features in our design. In creo parametric we use pattern feature in different ways. we can use a single pattern tool or a combination of different tools in our part design. Each of them are explained below:
in this tool first you are required to select all the dimensions on which you want to apply pattern. it may be in rotational, axial, distance from a side or any other dimension that may appear on the part. the best of this tool is to make a sequential features in a part or assembly the detail tutorial can be read here
Â Axis Pattern
This is simplest pattern tool to make pattern about the axis of the given part or select axis of the part. Â it’s name is itself well explanatory. i already shared a Â tutorial in pdf file that can download from this link.
again a simple tool. the concept is Â you have to give a reference side of your part and than you have to give the distance that should be placed between the two features of pattern. this is also explained in this file.
Â Fill option
do you want to fill Â a surface with holes? if yes then this will work fine for you. it is not so different from direction tool and can be used for variety of features.
This tool will suite best if you know the exact location of a feature ( with in a coordinate system) reference to some point or location. this will surely reduce the your time that can be used to create the features separately. full tutorial can be read here.
As the name suggest this tool will generate features at a curve, you have drawn earlier, or it will follow the curve. if you want some complex pattern on your part then this will help you a lot. full tutorial can be read here
using this tool Â you can genrate a feature at any location on your part. this make it restrictive for beginner but can work better for expert. you can read its basic hereÂ
