Selection within Parameter Pattern features

neobobkrauseneobobkrause Member Posts: 103 EDU
I have a simple drawing that uses Konstantin's Point On Path and Parameter Pattern custom features to arrange a set of parts around the side of a conical shape. But some of the features referred to by the Parameter Pattern are not using the elements from earlier steps in the iteration. I'm sure this is due to a simple mistake I'm making. Can somebody point out what I'm doing wrong???

    When I was trying to use native transform feature in feature pattern earlier it was not behaving well, it is probably something with not handling properly remainderPatternTransfroms() inside it. So for usage in feature patterns i would recommend either Transform pattern feature or something else. And seem like those extend point features are not working with feature pattern too. If you need a projection on the cone surface you could project the whole trajectory or create trajectory on the surface. To locate coordinate system on the trajectory you can use Multi mate connector. And then it seem to work ok, though you can also try to replace Parameter pattern with some curve pattern (for example - Path pattern feature)
