In the product design process, often to repeat some of the basic feature-based modeling to generate the repeat, there are some common products, heat-hole, rebar, structural framework, then we will have the use of 3D software features of the array. Similarly in the SolidWorks software has this feature, the array design methods are: circular array and linear array of characteristics of an array of rules, by the draft-driven arrays, forms-driven array, the array of drives, such as curve with irregular-shaped array of arrays and functions. to have the same structural characteristics of the parts, help to reduce repetitive work, thus enhancing design efficiency, introduced here with an order to build model-shaped array, with the changes in array shape is for the array process, the characteristics of a certain law of change of the array. This example is a piece of sheet metal, above the law to fight there with a certain pore characteristics changing. This is also often asked by recent users an array of problems in the hope that this case can provide help.

Practical steps:

In this example, set the geometry and size, as they remain unchanged in the array:

Parts marked the bottom line to the bottom line sketch size (4mm). Round draft mark to the specified width of the tangential deformation of the boundary size, note that here, not to mark the center size. Click the tensile characteristics of removal of the toolbar, or click to insert, remove, stretching, and then generate the source characteristics. FeatureManager design in the choice of tree removal - stretch characteristics. Click on the toolbar features of the linear array, or click Insert, array / mirror to the linear array. Array of choices for the direction of drive size (20 mm), the number of array 15, and then select the option with the shape change, so that the completion of the first array.

1, using the Sketch tool to draw lines with reference to the track

Draw after the needs of the graphics size constraints

Choice arrays, and graphics-shaped grass-size edge in the end as the array direction of the distance, in this case is to select the size of 4mm.

At the same time, the need to specify the characteristics of the array.

Option in the array of features, select the shape with the change 【】

This change in the completion of a special out of the array.

Select has a good array of mapping the characteristics of the horizontal direction to the array, select the level of a wave plate as the array of edge direction and select the last feature of the post-array.

Finally, the following can be generated on the graphics, he is characterized by the array with the shape changing.

Summary

Changes in the array to generate a number of issues require attention:

1, the characteristics of the draft plan must be limited array of examples of changes in the definition of the borders within.

2, the characteristics of the draft plan should be fully bound.

3, marked changes in the draft is not the size of the measurement and to identify examples of not marking the change in array size measurement.

Characteristics of the array using Solidworks order to quickly change the characteristics of an array of modeling, Solidworks fully reflects the design of human nature, which will be able to greatly reduce the operating pressure of Engineers to improve the work efficiency.
