Using the SolidWorks Fill Pattern Feature

Article by Rod Mackay updated April 15, 2012


The Fill Pattern Feature is an excellent, yet little known patterning tool in SolidWorks. In this video, I explain how fill patterns can be used to quickly create complex types of patterns. The fill pattern feature can even create its own hole features! SolidWorks will automatically pattern a feature and space it fit within a bounding area, usually a face. The feature can also be used to quickly create perforated pattern types.
