I have created an assembly full of lots of stand alone parts. I have also added fasteners. But instead of dropping each fastener into the assembly, I dropped 1 and used a feature driven patterns to populate the rest. Then, the very last thing I needed to do was to do a component circular pattern around an axis of everything in the assembly, including the feature driven fasteners. This was no problem, I simply highlighted the feature driven component pattern icon in the feature tree during the circular pattern dialog.
But now, I realized that I have forgot a few fasteners. I inserted these just like I did before. I dropped 1 and used a feature pattern to populate the rest.
The problem is that I need these newly added fasteners to be included in the circular pattern that was previously created. The newly added feature driven pattern is below the circular pattern in the feature tree. I thought, no problem! I will just reorder them so that they are above the circular pattern. It will not let you do this!!! I even tried to rollback before the circular pattern to create the new feature driven pattern of the new fasteners. However, it still puts it at the bottom of the tree. How can I go about including these newly added fasteners in the circular pattern.
I hope this makes sense....
