About the Geometry Pattern Feature
Use a geometry pattern to create a pattern of the geometry that you define by selecting surfaces, curves, or features in the current part. The copied surfaces create a quilt that is used to create the pattern members.
You can define the way that the pattern members attach to the base geometry. You can define whether material is added, removed, or both.
The same pattern types are available on the Geometry Pattern tab as on the Pattern tab, with these exceptions:
Dimension and Reference pattern are not available for geometry patterns.
You cannot create Table patterns directly. You must first create the pattern as a different pattern type, and then change the pattern type to Table during editing.
