I've observed a difference in geometry pattern & feature pattern.
I've just migrated to Creo Prametric 2.0 from Pro E 3.0
While pattering a geometry - under the numbers box.
If I write the no. = 2, well it creates 2 geometry
If I write the no. =3, it creates 4 geometry
I want to understand the logic behind it.
Where as in the feature pattern-
If I write the no. = 2, well it creates 2 features
If I write the no. =3, it creates 3 features.
I've also using M040
I've attached a ppt. shwoing the steps How it comes?
Please refer .
Thankyou for the reply.
That definitely looks like a bug. I had the same results using your method in the powerpoint; I'm on Creo 2.0 M70. I tried the following similar methods:
When this comes up in a code review it is called "off-by-one"
The usual causes:
Increment from zero for one case and increment from one for another
Stop at equals to limit or stop at exceeds limit.
Better put - do you count the pickets in the fence or do you count the gaps.
Actually, if you:
Pattern 2, you get 2
Pattern 3, you get 4
Pattern 4, you get 7
Pattern 5, you get 11
I think I see what might be going on. It selects all solid geometry for each instance of the pattern. You can see this if you have prehighlight on and hover over each instance of the pattern. So this may be typical programed Creo (mis)behavior after all?
