    Question about Behavior of Multiple Instances of an Assembly

    Hi, I have an Assembly (A) made up of several Sub-Assemblies (a1, a2, a3), and constrained in such a way that it behaves properly when moving Parts around. I intend to use multiple instances of Assembly A as Sub-Assemblies of a larger Assembly (B). Each Assembly A is constrained to a base in...

    How to fill an area with a honeycomb pattern

    After Harold made the comment in the thread on how to create an area fill pattern with an equation, I tried to develop a way to fill an area with a honeycomb pattern. In the end, I developed 2. Both are with some assumptions made. Take a look at the video and let me know what you think. Also...

    How to create an area fill pattern that parametrically fills an area and adjusts with it.

    In this tutorial you will see how to use one simple equation that can create a fill pattern. It works in Alibre although it should work on other Parametric CAD software as well. This equation is based on the parameters of the area you want to fill, such as the length, width, height, etc. The...

    Reference pat geometry in assembly

    Hello. I want to create a rotating part pattern. Can I use an axis created in a part in the assembly? Reference pat geometry are invisible in the assembly. Regards, Jarek

    Spiral (Circular with a Step) Pattern

    Is it possible to do something like this picture in Alibre (without script)? Essentially a circular pattern with a step along the rotation axis. Or repeat over a path along the face? I'm at a loss as to how to go about it.
