Pattern, the term Inventor uses for duplicating geometry in sketches, features of parts, and parts in assemblies. These Patterns can be rectangular, circular, reflective, and copy is a pattern in assemblies.
The Circular Feature Pattern now has an Orientation toggle to add rotation to the feature if desired. In the picture below, as we could always do, you see the Circular Pattern which rotated the feature as it goes around the base feature. If we designed radial clock faces all day, then this is all we needed.
Now, added in 2017, "It's about time", we have the Fixed toggle button that will maintain the Orientation of the feature as it is revolved.
Let's take a closer look as well at the display of the feature being patterned. Notice the green dot that is the current Base Point for the Orientation of the pattern.
The Base Point can be moved to a different vertex, giving different results to the pattern.
Picking different base points will give variations to the layout of the Circular Feature Pattern.
But wait, that's not all with Patterns. The Rectangular Pattern has ...
