Hi Roger happy to see you coming back and asking question….

The recognition is part of the import process, when you import a part you tell SE that you like to pass by the feature recongnizer.

Feature recognizer option

Once you specify the template to import the part, you will get acess to feature recognizer functionnality.

Feature recognizer tool

From there you will have

  • Full automatic recognition
  • Semi automatic
  • Manual

Those are useful because some part are more complex and need user interaction.

For the case, we are writing “Pattern” you will have to specify if a pattern need to be recognize.

Then specify if it is rectangular or circular

pattern option2

Once the process is finish simply, convert the part to a synchronous model. Rectangular pattern will be recognized, by default they use number of instance in X and Y.

Option in the quickbar allow user to modify setting. Since they are procedural, behaviour is store in the feature.

Here few simple that came with the software to help users practice, Like always I recommend taking training prior to jump in. Base on existing experience half a day or a day will help you save a week or more guessing and will allow you to appreciate the functionnality.

Feature recognizer sample

Will try to  put a video to better see it in action.

Hope this help.
