Unable to create instances for the pattern... error.

By mutlu on 04 Jun 14:29 1 answer 1 comment

I am trying to make a single part chain with 'curve driven pattern' on Solidworks.

However i got the error:
"Unable to create instances for the pattern. Try again by decreasing number of instances or the distance between instances".
But the numbers are already quiet small as you see on screenshots.

I have simplified the path as single line and tried linear pattern at this time. But i got the same error.

I have also suppressed all fillets and chamfers. Then i got different error: "Geometry pattern fails." Even if i checked i have checked geometry pattern i couldn't get what i want.

    When selecting the features to pattern use bodies instead and it will work.

Add your answer to: "Unable to create instances for the pattern... error."
