SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Variable Pattern Tiki


Variable Pattern Tiki: 

This model is intended to demonstrate the power of the Variable Pattern feature. The bottom head contains the original Mouth, Teeth, Nose and Eyes features. The other three heads are patterned using Variable Pattern. Each instance is driven by a spreadsheet containing varying dimensions that drive the sketches of each feature. The result is that each head of the Tiki contains unique facial expressions, even though they were modeled only one time.

Complexity: Moderate

Features: Variable Pattern, Offset Surface, Delete/Keep Body, Revolved Boss/Base
