New in SolidWorks 2013: Varying Dimension Patterns

With SolidWorks 2013, you can quickly create variations of pattern instances with expanded SolidWorks® patterning capabilities. This helps you:

  • Save time and reduce the number of features
  • Increment feature spacing or size in linear and circular patterns
  • Select any feature dimension for variation
  • Override individual instance dimensions

  • For me this is easily the best improvement in SolidWorks 2013.

  • I can easily see this as a time saver. Doing each one separately as a sheet metal cut and then perhaps patterning that across to the other end would still take time to do. This makes it so much better. Innovation taken to the next level. Nice.
