opPattern IDs

jacob_kingeryjacob_kingery Member Posts: 39 EDU
Are there individual IDs for each copy made with an opPattern?  I tried qCreatedBy(id + "opPattern_ID" + "instanceName"), but that didn't seem to work. The documentation says, "TODO: make it easy to query for them," regarding the instanceNames parameter, so is this not possible yet?

    That would be useful when patterning a sketch because qSketchRegion() takes in an ID.  I was able to get something that almost does what I want by querying for the face entities created by the operation, but this doesn't handle inner loops like qSketchRegion() can.  Do you have any hints on reverse engineering the generated IDs?  I poked around a bit, but didn't see anything obvious.
