Hi Kell,

I think you need to go into the Linear Sketch Pattern Property Manager, once you setup and define "Direction 1/X-Axis" it should enable "Direction 2" and this will be your Y-Axis, to specify the Y direction for the Y-Axis, you first need to add additional "instances" for Direction 2.

Let us know if that works for you :)

Forgot to say I am using solidcam,
Don't seem to be able to see a sketch pattern any where

The sketch pattern is something you would have drawn or already have in front of you to be working with?

It's the the "property manager" for either I think you need in order to select or change the YAXIS direction.
