Group Pattern


New member
I have created a protrusion and then a cut, then I put them in one group and pattern. Now I created another cut at the first protrusion. How should I include the second cut feature into the group and update the pattern accordingly??
Can anyone suggest me how to update a group pattern after the parent group is included with a new feature as mentioned above.
Thanks in advance.
You will not be able to redefine a group and add new features to it, you have to delete un group and create a new group to include in the new feature. If you have a pattern of a group and want a new feature to be part of the pattern, then you can create the new feature and then pattern using the reference option. this would create a pattern of the new feature over the existing group pattern. This would help if you are not going to delete the existing features.
