Please see attachment for a visualization.
I would like to know if someone had an idea how I could go about doing this, I have a profile length X, and a part that is mated to this profile and then patterned, I want to have all patterned parts be in the center of the profile length. I have used the width mate but my issue is that when I want to change the pattern quantity number, I would like it to automatically be centered again between the profile edges while maintaining their spacing to each other.
If you have at-least two surface contact easy to use copy with mates.. if not then try mirror , may be you get
I would like to change the LinearPattern Number of Instances, and then have it always centered in the middle of the profile.
I am not sure if I understand correctly what you're saying, could you explain in a bit more detail?
