I've found that adding axis always causes errors in some way - define the direction of the pattern via a sketch. In my experience it works better.

Robert, you can't pattern a feature if it isn't going to be one body, you have to use pattern bodies ...
Anyway, pattern bodies rebuilds a lot faster than pattern feature in most cases ...

Try combining the body, and don't use partial preview, it sometimes malfunctions and almost never shows a truly "partial view" Can you add a picture of the "techtree" as well?

Yeah, when i press full preview it doesnt show the pattern and i don't know way. This is a basic feature that i have used hundreds of times before :/

Hmm thats weird. it still failed if i selected the feature to pattern.

managed to get it to work by selecting the body... Weird.

w.wolf is correct about bodies

Features (Holes, Faces, Bodies) can be patterened just have to match selection with type
