  • Pattern & Paste with Pattern

    I'm hoping someone here can help me......I'm running PC-DMIS 4.2 MR1....I'm trying to use the Paste with Pattern feature........I'm checking a part with 10 holes on a bolt cirlce......I measure the first hole feature location when I copy it then "Paste with Pattern" for the other 9 holes it erases or eliminates the first hole checked...........when actually running it on the CMM the program stops in the middle of the first hole I'm checking........Is this a software issue or am I doing something wrong ?...........any help would be appreciated

        I suspect the following is happening:

        You set the pattern.

        You copy the first feature.

        You click paste with pattern.

        What went wrong there is after you copied the feature your cursor was left in the middle of the block of code for the feature, so when you pasted with pattern everything went Kablooey. (Yep, that is the technical term.)

        To solve this after you copy the feature, click in the edit window below the feature so you cursor is in the clear, then paste with pattern.

        HTH

        Of course this may not be your problem at all, but I have seen this cause headaches and your symptoms fit, so it was worth a shot.

          TRY pasting 10 times might be bug in 4.2.

            Sounds like your pattern is not set-up properly. Go to Edit > Pattern

            Make sure you have the correct angle or offsets for the bolt hole pattern.

            Then Copy the first hole, then past with pattern. Make sure when you copy the first hole you have a clearance plane included in the copy. Otherwise it will only paste the holes without it.

              pattern pasting

              I havent had this problem, the only thing that I can think of is that rather than just copying the feature to be pasted with a pattern, you are cutting the feature, then pasting with a pattern.

                      I think WES hit it right on the head, I have had this happen also. Make sure cursor is after feature you copied and it will work for you.

                            Are you sure you don't have the copied feature still highlighted? I've done it myself. It writes right over the hightlighted material.

                                Is there a way to create a hole pattern? I have a part with a 19 hole pattern. Instead of measuring each hole separately. Thank You in advance everyone...
