I have come across a number of parts recently that use sketch patterns, that were created by former colleagues. I've never used this function before, as I've always tended to use feature patterns, so that fasteners etc can quickly be added to all the holes with a component pattern.
Firstly, is there any advantage to using sketch patterns, other than it's one less item in the feature manager tree?
Secondly, how the hell do you edit them? If I RMB on a patterned sketch element and pick "edit sketch pattern", I can change the number of instances, but the spacing value is greyed out in the feature manager - why?
TIA, John H
