## Pattering a Pattern of patterns

Is it possible to pattern a pattern of patterns?
I am able to create a pattern of patterns, but i would like to know if i could create another level.
I have tried several times, but pattern interface is disabled.

See the image below, can i create another element that creates a pattern which includes father and sons?

Unfortunately, geometry pattern is not available in assembly mode.  For an assembly you can stack 2 patterns (that gets you patterning in 4 directions).  To get more you would need to create a sub-assembly and pattern the sub-assembly.

There is always more to learn in Creo.

In creo 7 the answer is no.

What are you trying to accomplish?  Creo allows you to pattern in 2 directions with one pattern.

You can create a geometry pattern of a pattern of a pattern.

Im just doing test for my thesis. All i wanted is being able to create an assembly using patterns and parts.
In this case, I had created a part and then I built a pattern (son 1). Once that pattern had been created, I built another pattern of that pattern (Father) which includes both patterns.
My final purpose is  to create another pattern which multiples Father a few times.

How can I create a geometry pattern of a pattern of a pattern?

Thanks mate!

Note that geometry pattern can be applied numerous times to duplicate geometry generated by previously applied patterns:

How did u create that? I dont know how to insert "Pattern_of_patterns" feauture to create a group with the pattern. I dont know how to create that pattern that includes copy geometry neither.
