Selection Rules for "features"
When selecting a "feature" to pattern, e.g. a rib with drafted sides, the Part Design Fundamentals course usually recommends selecting both the base rib feature and the draft feature (from the feature tree). As a long time Solidworks user, I would normally select only the draft feature, which would contain both features. In fact, by selecting on the drafted face on screen, the "rib" feature is selected, including the draft and appears to work fine. The dialog says that I selected only the rib but all copies have draft. Is there a difference between selecting both the rib and draft features (from the feature tree) and selecting the drafted rib from the screen?
