To Pattern CMM Steps
You can pattern Measure steps that reference a patterned feature. For example, if you have a pattern of cylinders (see example), you can measure one of them, and then pattern the Measure step to produce DMIS output equivalent to measuring all the cylinders in the pattern.
1. Select the name of the Measure step you want to pattern in the Model Tree. Right-click and choose Pattern or click Inspect > Pattern.
The Measure step must have a patterned feature as one of its geometric references; otherwise, the system displays an error message.
2. The system creates a Reference pattern of Measure steps, based on the pattern of the referenced feature.
