Allow directional/dimensional pattern to have a direction of 'centered' or 'uniformed'.

Allow directional/dimensional pattern to have a direction of 'centered' or 'uniformed'.

There are many times when the design intent for a pattern is where the original member is the 'center' of where all of the members should be. This is more for the directional/dimensional pattern type. Using mirror doesn't work well for a few reasons:

1 - the original member would be repeated twice

2 - mirrors don't always update and propagate well (especially with holes)

3 - mirrors prevent reference changes to the base feature.

Setting up a directional with a rotational pattern also doesn't always work well.

We would prefer to have a toggle where the direction of these patterns are simple - Direction 1, Direction 2, Centered (or uniform).

 

Thanks!

I have already thought about this and indeed it would be really useful.
