Assembly : creating a Pattern using a set of Datum Points or Csys as a reference

Assembly : creating a Pattern using a set of Datum Points or Csys as a reference

We would repeat a component-by-point

The component coordinate system placement doesn't match with the center model size

The part is assembled to a sketch coordinate system (here 3 Csys on the sketch ACS0, ACS1 & ACS2)

The pattern result without change is wrong.

           We have 4 part

          The pattern isn't ok. (It's use the model size center and not the coordinate system for patterning)

To have good results,

We must change the pattern option by using alternate origin (selecting the same coordinate system that positioning the part in the assembly)

If we do the same pattern with a part who have coordinate system matching with model size center,

it's not necessary to use alternate origin.

Is it possible when making pattern by point (or coordinate system) to not have to specify an alternate origin ?

(Creo should take as default origin patterning, the reference part placement in the assembly)
