When a Pattern is created within a sketch or a sketch region is patterned in the 3D environment, a sketch pattern constraint is automatically created. This constraint maintains the relationship between the patterned elements so that changes you make to one element also apply to the other elements in the pattern.
If you want to modify elements in your sketch pattern individually, you can break the pattern by deleting the sketch pattern constraint.
The sketch pattern constraint can only be created using the Pattern tool for sketch elements or sketch regions. If a sketch pattern constraint is deleted, it will permanently break the relationship between pattern instances.
To delete a sketch pattern constraint, follow these steps:
- Locate the source sketch from which you created your pattern.
- Select the sketch pattern constraint badge on the source sketch.
- In the Sketch menu, select Delete Constraints.
- Modify individual elements from the pattern.
