Example: Identical Geometry and Similar Geometry in Pattern Recognition

In identical geometry, the surfaces of the pattern members are identical to the pattern leader, and the edges where the pattern members intersect the surrounding geometry are identical. The following pattern consists of geometry that is identical to the pattern leader:

In similar geometry, the surfaces of the pattern members are identical to the pattern leader, but the edges where the pattern members intersect the surrounding geometry are not identical. The following pattern consists of geometry that is similar to the pattern leader:
