Pattern in Any Direction in Fusion 360
Updated: Jul 14, 2021
Today’s quick tip is one of those little nuggets that can cause you to think, “How come I never knew this even after using the software for a few years now?”
Actually, you’ll probably find yourself saying that a lot after going through my Fusion 360 Quick Tips series.
If you’ve been using Fusion 360 for a while now, I’m sure you’ll know some of these but you’ll also be pleasantly surprised at all the little things you didn’t know.
That’s my goal with these quick tips. To try and find the not so obvious but useful and convenient tidbits of Fusion knowledge to help make your design process much more efficient and enjoyable.
Today we’ll look at the pattern tool.
Did you know that you can pattern in any direction?
You don’t have to stick with the default direction of up/down left/right as the arrows seem to imply.
Watch the video above to see how to do this.
I’m sure it won’t be long before you’ll need to apply this to your designs.
My big aha! moment with Fusion 360 happened when I finally understood how to use Constraints. Get my free Fusion 360 Constraint Cheat Sheet and see what I mean.
