Point Pattern (Request Update)

I love the point pattern, but can you add functionality to ignore the seed?
That way we can use an entire sketch for a 'location' without it failing overlapping faces. Rather than independently selecting each point when doing a feature or face pattern
(For when this feature ever become part of the Onshape core toolbox, I hope)

maybe you have a cleaner way of coding it, but this works for me:

    That seems to make sense to me! I can probably make the change or if @cody_armstrong wants to.

    I think removing the seed from the "locations" variable definition would be faster than nesting an if statement in the for loop. I will try it out...
