Question from Chirag: Can you do draft check in two directions at the same time? Molding part requires action in different directions. Good to see all at once when doing reviews.
Answer: No, but you can change the direction of the draft.
Question from David: Is there any way to not show (turn off) the first instance of a pattern?
Answer: Any and every item in the pattern can be toggled on or off.
Question from David: That is not the case for Creo 4.0 M120 that I am using. The first instance cannot be toggled off. Can you provide many examples of 4 not allowing first instance of patterns not being able to be toggled off?
Answer: Pattern Fill - you can remove the first. All other patterns, in 4.0, you can't remove the first but you can with a flex modeling remove.
Question from Rajesh: The draft hinge can be a curve?
Answer: It can be 3D but it does need to be a surface for a draft check. The draft creation can be relative to a curve.
