To Project Pattern Members onto a Surface in Creo Flexible Modeling
1. Click Flexible Modeling > Flexible Pattern. The Pattern tab opens.
2. To set the pattern type, select Fill, Curve, or Point from the list. See the Related Links for information about creating each pattern type.
3. To select references to define the pattern leader, click the References tab, and perform any of the following actions:
Click the Leader surfaces collector, and select surfaces. If needed, click Details to open the Surface Sets dialog box.
Click the Leader curves and datums collector, and select curves and datums.
4. To define references for the pattern, perform one of the following actions:
For fill, curve, or point patterns based on a sketch, click the Sketch collector and select a sketch, or click Define and create an internal sketch.
For point patterns based on points, click the Datum point collector and select a datum point or datum point feature.
5. To define the surface onto which to project the pattern members, click the Options tab, select the Follow surface shape check box, and select a surface.
6. To match the pattern member orientation on the surface to the pattern leader orientation on the surface, select the Follow surface direction check box.
7. To define the spacing of the pattern members on the surface, select one of the following spacing options:
As projected
Map to Surface Space
Map to Surface UV Space
8. To set the attachment options, click the Attachment tab and do the following:
To attach all pattern members to the model geometry, select the Attach pattern members check box.
* When the Attach pattern members check box is not selected, the resulting geometry is a quilt. The appearance of the original solid surfaces is propagated to both sides of the resulting quilt.
To attach all pattern members to the model geometry with rounds or chamfers of the same type and dimensions as the pattern leader, select the Create rounds/chamfers check box.
