SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Plate Pattern


Plate Pattern: Only one dimension needs to define the sketch as the origin that was used to tie down the part. Origins of parts should not be random; you will need extra dimension, or relations, to fully define your sketch and pick a meaningful sketch origin. This example uses the center of the part as the origin.
