Pattern multiplier inside dimension

Pattern multiplier inside dimension

Is there a way to parametrically put the pattern multiplier inside of a dimension?

I know about using the hole note to show the multiplier, but that doesn't allow you to attach a feature control frame to the note.  It also doesn't allow you to select your semantic references.

I am using Creo 4.0

To add the pattern multiplier to a dimension you must add the P number of the pattern. You can find this in the model by right mouse button on the pattern and select edit dimensions, from the ribbon select switch dimensions. You will now see a P number. Add this to the dimension, be sure to add & in front of the P number. Example &P25

How do you use the p number when you have a two direction pattern?

You could create a parameter called NO_OF_HOLES as an integer, write a relation

NO_OF_HOLES = P25*P26

put the parameter in with the dimension same way you would put the P number

&NO_OF_HOLES
