Decision to flip pattern using toolkit

Decision to flip pattern using toolkit

Hello All

 

We had created dimension pattern using pro toolkit.

 

User selects a feature for which pattern need to be created. Another input is surface selection with reference to which pattern  should propagate at certain distance provided by user.

 

To consider a basic scenario, there is an extrude and one hole on it. We need to create a pattern of that hole feature. Holes created by pattern are in the reverse direction and we just need to flip pattern in order to get it correct.

 

Issue is that how to recognize when to flip and what need to be done to flip pattern with pro toolkit.

 

Major concern : Below note in document suggests that we cannot flip through code. Is it limitation still with Creo 4.0 M030?

PRO_E_DIRECTION_FLIP value is ignored while pattern creation.
