Looking at the Step Repeat Arrangement within the SAi FlexiPRINT RTUV 22 Software (Part 13)

flexiprint step repeat arrangement

This is a great feature if you would like to run a repeat of key actions on a design.

Even though this will primarily be a repeat function, you are also however able to fine tune the outcome.

Alright, guys, In today's video, we're gonna be looking at the step repeat feature that's within flexi print. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. co dot Z A. We make sure and easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Now we're heading to the programme. So like I mentioned in today's video, we're gonna be looking at the steppe feature. This is handy if you wanna quickly make a duplicate of a pre existing design or shape and then, um, we have some different layout options as well. So at the moment I've just got a rectangle here and obviously it could be anything. It could be a design. You could have some, uh, text in there. It could even be the AM do TZ a logo. And I'm just gonna use this for now, for simplicity's sake. So make sure you select your object. Then what we wanna do is go to our arrange menu on top and you'll see right at the bottom. We have the option here, step and repeat. So I'm gonna click that and then on our design Central we have a few different options here. As you can see on our viewpoint already, something started happening. But now let's start right in the beginning. So there's three tabs. We've got our block, diagonal and circular. So I'm gonna go block first. And now, as you can see, pretty straight forward here. We've got how many, um, blocks. It's gonna be on the horizontal so we can increase or decrease this and the same on our vertical. Now under that, we've got a little hash and that will show us how many current shapes do we have. So if I can grease this, you can see it's six. And then, um, like so then under that, we've got our spacing. So this will be the spacing between these shapes. So, depending on how snug you want them to sit, I'm gonna leave mine around here similar distance. And then we also have the layout type like we had with, uh, what was it? Alignment or spacing where we can actually choose from the beginning of a shape to an end or end beginning to beginning or end to beginning. I like it from end to beginning because that will keep the space between these shapes consistent. Then what I can do is if I like that, I can simply say yes, confirm it. And now you can see we've got these extra shapes that are created around our selected one. I'm gonna remove that and let's go to it again. So main menu, arrange step and repeat, and then we'll open this dialogue box. So now what I'm gonna do is go to the second one. Now we're gonna look at diagonal. So now likewise, you can choose how many shapes it's gonna be within there, and then you can also over here now, choose how far is it to the, um, on the horizontal or vertical? So in essence, what you could do, You could turn those basically into, like, a form of, um, block shape, or I guess, an out Get a line so you can align these with the horizontal or vertical if you wanted to, so you can also do that. But this is handy, obviously for you looking at, like, 45 degree angles and so forth. And then, uh, last up, we have the circular. So if I click this, we have a few different options. The top one will be the same. How many shapes will be within the circular shape? So I'm just gonna, um, pan out here, zoom out a bit so we can nicely see the entire circle. So now, as you can see, as I increase these numbers, they'll try to fit around the circle. But decrease them, the same thing will happen. Now, we have another option here under that. This is kind of like the angle of the I'm gonna say origin point. So if this is the main shape we are referencing, then this will be where this point is around that So if I increase this, you'll see it starts rotating around that centre object. So if you wanted to fit it in bed in the design, you can always do that, adjust it until you get the right angle. But for now, I'm just gonna keep the zero. And then after that, we have the actual sweep angle. So this will be how far or how many degrees does this thing rotate at the moment it's doing a full 360. If I, um uh changes decrease that you can see there. So you can choose to only rotate this perhaps, uh, like a few amounts. You can go 90 degree and so forth so you can find the exact amount you like. So if you want to keep it within a design, you could do that as well, Which is handy. Let's just set this back to 3. 60. Got a full rotation. Then we have another, uh, option here. And this is the actual radius. So this will be how far these shapes are bought or from the centre origin. Now, this makes more sense. If you have a lot of shapes and you can see they start overlapping here, then what you can do is you simply increase this until you find a place where they no longer overlapping. So you can use that as well, which is handy. And in the last one here, we've got rotate objects. So currently it is rotating this shape around this origin point. Now, I could deselect this, and then all our shapes will stay in the same rotation as our original one, as you can see like that. So, um, this makes more sense sometimes that, uh, and when you have fewer numbers, but yeah, you can enable and disable it, which is very handy and obviously like before. If you like to change, it's just simply the green, right Mark or the red X if you don't want to apply it. And yeah, so that is that on the step. And repeat very handy tool can save you a lot of time if you get used to using it. And you can get some nice, um, accurate, uh, distribution of shapes if you use it, but yeah, in the meanwhile, though, if we head here to softwaretraining.co.za. co dot Z a you guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover. And you can also isolate your search on the top, right? If you do not, however, find the training videos you're looking for, just simply go. Yeah, request the training video, fill in the mini form, and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and cheers
