Much better than subtracting each opening individually. :)

I like that the boolean subtraction(s) adjusts automatically if you modify your pattern via the part tree.

Can the resulting object be sent to a Rapid Prototyper or 3D Printer and result in something close to what is seen here?

Yup agreeable pattern tool is handy addition .Made similar project for a forum member in the old forum.Done with 11.2 combing radial coping and subtracting cylinders from one ring & stacking one on top of the other and rotating every 15 degrees.

Jeff I would think that is possible. What formats does the prototyping or 3D Printer softwhere read? Usually STL is more or less the standard,
but .SAT would be the best possible format IMO.

Great.  TC has long had the ability to apply apparent articulation (such as a Knurled surface) that couldn't be sent to a fabricator.  Some of Henry's examples over the years for fences and such also could not be turned into physical objects, so this is, to me, a major improvement.

Great Idea, I did'nt know the boolean subtraction in combination with the pattern tool was possible.
Thank you Dave!
