I did the same and 6 worked. I opened PolarPattern002 and it now fails at 6 occurrences.quick61 wrote:I just changed the value of occurrences in the failed polar pattern to 5 and did a recompute then back to 6 and after another recompute, it is working as expected. Give that a try and see what happens. Maybe a little bug in OCE?
I had done the same as quick1 and sgrogan but 5 failed and 6 succeeded with recompute, sometimes. Seems a bit random. Good thing I only need six and not ten or some other number.sgrogan wrote:I did the same and 6 worked. I opened PolarPattern002 and it now fails at 6 occurrences.
So it appears that the radiused slot is the culprit even though my Check Geometry does not pick it up. A workaround is to first pocket a hole, polar pattern the hole, pocket a rectangular slot, then polar pattern the slot:bejant wrote:For me Check Geometry with BOPcheck = True reports that Pocket001 and Pocket002 are invalid,
I had tried that earlier but it fails at 4,5, and >6 occurrences, at least in my file. I get the same failed result if the tangency constraint is removed and the slot extended radially a small amount.quick61 wrote:Remove the unneeded arc and it's tangents from the outside and replace with a line.
Thanks for the correction. It is important to be both accurate and precise. I tried your spherical version, and it fails the same as above for me.DeepSOIC wrote:BTW, I just noticed that your faces are not spherical, as you stated.The fact that faces are not spherical isn't an excuse for the cuts to fail, though...
