Never knew you could create a linear dimensional constraint to/from a plane. Thanks for the tip.
However, when the plane's visibility is suppressed the dimensional constraints looks suspect.
The constraint's dimension extension line points to nothing.
Onshape: Maybe a small plane icon should be appear at the end of the extension line to indicate it is associated with a plane feature.
We will look into supporting multiple mate case in future.
is there a way to query on mouseover what parts are part of a pattern in the graphics view, rather that the tree?
I see if you mouse over the replicate feature in the tree it highlights them in graphics view, but it does not show where the seed is. (maybe highlight this with a different color?) Right now you will have to right click / edit the replicate to see the seed.
Also, if you copy a replicated part from graphics view selection, it should recognize the part and add it to clipboard (or a series of parts)
When you are creating your flat pattern views in drawings, you find a part that is upside down (bend direction needs to be flipped)
so you need to switch over to the model
find the sheet-metal feature
edit the feature, select flip
wait for regeneration
go back to the drawing
regenerate the drawing
then you find the mirror parts you have no control over unless you flip the parent too.
This should have simply been: Flip the view from TOP to BOTTOM (IN DRAWINGS) while maintaining the bend lines and updating bend notes automatically
I've been trying to use this feature in my last few jobs, but it is so tedious I will be ignoring this update from this point forward.
Which is sad for me, I was waiting for this one since Sheet-Metal came out.
Not really fearful of that yet.
I do love the new replicate, but the old replicate was also an important feature as it was.
I would like there to be a checkbox (which remembers last state) that toggles the replicate pattern feature to be combined or disolved on creation.
Also the ability to disolve a replicate pattern as well would be helpful to some people i feel.
