I created the following part, It uses pad to create a square, pocket to cutout a plus, and MultiTransform+PolarPattern on the pocket feature using DatumLine as a reference.
If I add a second datumLine (DatumLine001) after the Multitransform I can't use DatumLine001 as a reference for MultiTransform. When i change the Axis selection box to "select refrence..." I can't select DatumLine001. I think this is expected since DatumLine001 was created after the MultiTransform feature.
My question is if I use the "move object after other object" to move DatumLine001 before MultiTransform, I still can't use DatumLine001 as a reference. I would expect this to work since DatumLine001 is now before MultiTransform in the tree, so I would expect to be able to refrence it. Why does this happen?
If I delete MultiTransform and add it back in, both DatumLine and DatumLine001 work properly. The tree looks identical to when it didn't work.
Here is a photo, the top is the prior "move object after other object", the bottom is after. The figure in both have a MultiTransform+PolarPattern applied on the pocket feature with DatumLine as a reference.
This is the object before the MultiTransform and DatumLine001:
