option while creating the rib feature. This plane passes through the axis of theparent hole feature. Hence, a relationship is built between the parent rib feature and theparent hole feature. Now, when you select the rib feature to pattern, the pattern shown inFigure 6-2 is created without specifying the increment in dimensions.
If you create the datum plane passing through the axis of the hole using the

button and then create the rib feature on it, the rib feature will not be patterned with reference to the holes. This is because the rib does not have any direct relation with the hole. The rib has relation with the datum plane and the datum plane has a relation with the hole. However, since the datum plane has relation with the hole, you can pattern the datum planes with referenceto the holes using the
