Linear Pattern - TEXT

lauren_bairdlauren_baird Member Posts: 3 EDU
Hello! I am trying to make a lot of keychains for a school project. I would like to use the linear pattern tool to lay everything out so maximize my material and so I can laser cut many a time. My keychain contains text and a design in the middle, and a circle around the design and a circle at the top for the key ring to go through. When I use the linear pattern tool, it only creates a pattern for the circles and it completely ignores the text, even though it is orange. Pleeeeease help!

    Is this a sketch pattern? You should really be making 1 solid part and then use assemblies for creating patterns.
