AutoCAD Inventor :: 2 Step Visibility Toggle While Drafting

Sep 2, 2013

I am trying to draft an assembly - when i want to hide some components I go to the tree and right click on the part/assembly and select Visibility.

There is a square next to visibility on the right click menu (like a 'stop' button) and nothing changes when i select it.

When I right click on the tree a second time, a tick appears (like in modelling/assembly view) and when selected it disappears. 

I want to turn items off in one click -

AutoCAD Inventor :: Using A Rule To Toggle Part Visibility

Jun 12, 2012

I have a simple Assembly for a Frame that I made with Frame Generator. I'd like to use a rule to toggle the visible of some of the framing members.

In the sub assembly (called Frame0001:1) I created a rule:

(I have a variable called LeftAngle, and the bar I want to toggle is called Bar1.)

If LeftAngle = 90 then
Component.Visible("Bar1") = False
Component.Visible("Bar1") = True
End If

I am sure this is VERY basic, but I can't get it to do anything. There is no error message - just nothing happens.

I know the rule is running though - it will change other parameters in response to the If Then statement.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Step Through Part Dimension Visibility?

May 19, 2013

I have been trying to sequentially show (and then hide) the dimensions for each feature (together with  its related sketch dimensions)  in a part browser tree.

 I can set the visibility for any one of the sketches with e.g.

oSketches.Item(1).Visible = True 
oSketches.Item(1).DimensionsVisible = True 'Show sketch dimension

and show the visibilty of the feature dims with e.g.

Set oFeature = odef.Features.Item(1)
oFeature.FeatureDimensions.Show  'Show feature dimension

but I cannot work out how to test which feature a particular sketch is dependent upon. Until I do this the visibiliy

of the feature and sketch dimensions cannot be synchronised.

I expected something like

If odef.Features.Item(1) = oSketch.Parent might work or maybe the  Isownedby function but so far I have had no luck with anything I have tried.

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic - Toggle Visibility For Item In Assembly Pattern

Jan 30, 2013

I have a subassembly that has been patterned.

I need to toggle the visibility of a part in that subassembly in each pattern element.

How do I refer to the part?

I have declared an object for my pattern, and can toggle the suppression on any element.

But I need to get at an individual component inside the element. 

I've been trying something like this:

oPattern.OccurrencePatternElements.Item(X).Component.Visible("Valance Jig Frame - 1in:1") = False

AutoCad :: How Multiple Lookup Toggle Created Without Any Visibility State

May 7, 2013


Since weld symbols are regularly used in my day to day work, i thought of making a dynamic block. I had zero knowledge of dynamic blocks at that time. I realized that its actually very difficult to make a type of dynamic block i wanted. So instead of breaking my head to create it, its better to downloaded it.

Attached is the drawing i found on a forum. Its extremely cool, that's exactly what i wanted. The multiple toggle is extremely useful. That's what i wanted but was unable to create.

How this multiple lookup toggle were created without any visibility state?

Photoshop :: (Toggle Mask Visibility) Shortcut?

Jul 4, 2013

Is there a keyboard shortcut for "Toggle mask visibility"? I can do this by ALT-clicking on the layer's mask, but I would like to assign a shortcut for this on a button on my Wacom Intuos 4 drawing tablet. So far I haven't found a menu shortcut for it, nor have I found a way to add my own (Edit-Keyboard shortcuts) as the function isn't listed there.

Illustrator :: How To Toggle Layer Lock / Visibility In CS6

Jun 16, 2012

How to toggle the layer lock/visibility in CS6 than in the earlier versions.

It seems that there's more padding around the lock/visibility icon, and you have to be really precise to click it... increasing the row size doesn't really make any difference, as the "padding" is still there. Wheres in the earlier versions clicking anywhere within the toggle box would enable/disable it.

Photoshop :: How To Toggle Visibility For A Layer Group And All Its Sub-groups

Sep 1, 2012

As I am using Layer Comps more frequently, i find myself frequently needing to toggle the visibility of layer groups, which contain several sub-groups. I tried all the shift + cmd + option - click variations, but none seems to do the trick.
here an example:
Visibility           Type           Name
OFF                Group         Row
ON                  Group         Button 1
OFF                Text            Help!
OFF                Shape         Bg
ON                  Group         Button 2
OFF                Text            Help Please!
OFF                Shape         Bg
so what i am looking for is a short-cut so that when i click on the visibility of the Group Row, it will turn on the visibility of all the layers contained.

AutoCAD .NET :: Undo Transactions Step-by-step Within Command Method

Sep 26, 2013

I have a Command Method which has a loop that opens and commits transactions until the user is finished with it and exits. 

I would like each transaction to be undone separately but the undo command undoes the CommandMethod (along with all the transactions that occurred while in the loop)

Do I need to use the COM StartUndoMark and EndUndoMark to get this working?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Templates For Step Translation

Oct 27, 2011

We have a minor issue with STEP translations.  We keep our templates on the network, and they have a lot of customized settings.  Everything is fine until we try to translate a STEP file, then Inventor wants to use the templates on the "C" drive (the ones that came with the software). 

Is there a setting I can use to make Inventor use the templates on the network?  I've got my "Files" setting in the "Options" pointing to the templates on the network, but Inventor still uses the ones on the "C" drive.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Exporting To Step Files?

Nov 5, 2013

I can use the program and quite happily create components, sub assemblys, and master assemblys.Our company still doesn't have ANY 3D FILES. I have been tasked with eventually creating a full range of end product drawings as Step files. They are wanting BIMS. I see this a step to far atm.....

With the products that manufacture inhouse (industrial / comercial boilers) I have produced each individual component within the boiler to eventually aid to manufacture and bombs to intergrate with SAP.

With doing this every boiler I have done in inventor all the components are there and easily accessable. Am I right in thinking it needs to be exported as a step file to lock everything within the master assembly.

When I have exported it to a step file, when it comes to importing it into an  assembly file the components are still accessable when expanded in the menu at the side. Is this because im opening it on my computer or have I done something wrong.....

Photoshop :: Step Backward And Step Forward

Dec 18, 2008

I have CTR-Z mapped to step backward.

Using two different shortcuts for "undo" (one step back) and "Step Backward" (Multiple steps back) makes no sense to me. As such, I rarely use the regular undo, and do not have it mapped.

The case:

When I switch to a new layer, do a brush stroke and undo it, photoshop treats my undo as a switch back to the layer I came from. This happens a LOT, and not just to me, but to a lot of designers I know (I'm a GUI designer at a game company). Some of them have even formed a habit of "erasing" a bit in an empty part of the layer, just in case the'd later want to undo. That's bad.

My proposed solution:

-First undo my stroke, Leave my selected layer alone.

-On a NEXT press of "Step backward" change my current layer to the one I came from.

For example my custom button toggles Part/Component priority or Highligt on/off and I would like the button image will change showing the current state.

The background image color change will work too, or the some extra tiny mark on working sceen would be useful if it quite complicated to deal with ribbons.

Generally I need to see the current state at glance.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Importing Step Files Into Assemblies

I am trying to import a step assembly file in 2013.  Under the options settings I no longer have or see the ability to,

(Import Multiple Solids Parts as Assembly) This was an option to check.

This seems to be a big issue as we always import the assemblies, then ground them. And this gives us the option of moving or deleting certain components, as well as opening individual components in their own part environment.
