How can I create a reference pattern of curves between two point pattern on curves

I would like to create a reference patten of curves based on two existing pattern of points on two different curves (on different datum planes). It is only working for one of two point pattern. All curves are coming from on single point.

 

These are the steps I would like to do to get the pattern:

  1. Create two curves on parallel datum planes
  2. Create the first point pattern (all points on the curve with the same distance to each other)
  3. Create the second point pattern on the second curve
  4. Connect one point from the first pattern with another from the second
  5. Create a reference pattern with that curve (that is the thing that is not working)
  6. Create a sweep on the curve and have another reference pattern

Has somebody an idea, how to get such reference pattern of the curve?

Reference patterns won't follow more than one reference.  It's going to follow the first pattern selected and ignore the second.

 

If you can find a way to create the second point pattern as a reference to the first, you might get this to work.  Based on your image, that's not going to be easy.

 

The best you are going to be able to do is create the two point patterns and then manually create the individual sweep features between them.

Thanks for your feedback,

that is how we did it in the end.

It woult be nice to have something like a reference 1 and reference 2 selection for the pattern.
