AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Generate Cable With Wiring And Connectors All Existing Together In Assembly

Feb 21, 2013

I've been creating documentation for cable assembly for many years now and I am trying to determine a way to use the Inventor Cable and Harness feature to accomplish the same detailed drawings as I previously made by hand.  The first thing I notice is that the connectors do not exist at the cable level, even though this is how they will be manufactured.  Is there any way to generate a cable with wiring and connectors all existing together in an assembly that can then be documented in a drawing?

AutoCad :: Creating Series Of Dynamic Blocks In Order To Create Tabletop Conveyors For Plat Layout

Jul 21, 2010

I am currently creating a series of dynamic blocks in order to create tabletop conveyors fro plat layout. I am using AutoCAD 2009 and am currently having issues making the turning sections. I know this is very simple using AutoCAD 2010 as there are geometric constrains available.

The curved sections must be able to have the inside thickness adaptable, the wall thickness must remain 1/2" thick, and the corner sections must have a 30, 45, 60 and 90 degree radii on them (although allowing any angle would be ideal). I was going to use visibility states to achieve the different angles as this seemed the easiest way to do this.

Attached is the basic 90 degree corner with an inside width of 4.5" with leaders labeling the areas that must be adaptive.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Any Sort Of Live Update Tool That Comes With 10 Series?

Jun 25, 2006

Is there any sort of "Live Update" tool that Comes w/ Inventor 10 series? I have been to the "downloads" page at Autodesk site for Inventor 10, and have already installed sp3a, and a couple of the hotfixes (1054780 & 1057155) - I was trying to follow the dates and hotfix numbers in an effort to bring my product completely up to date, but now Inventor does not seem to be working correctly - I suspect that I did something in the wrong order. How can I know that my product is completely up-to-date, and is it possible to get a sequential list of SP's and Hotfixes so I know what order I'm supposed to install? I have also tried "repair" from the installation disk, but after "gathering all required information", nothing happens.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Batch Print Series Of DWGs (2012) Through Task Scheduler

Nov 29, 2011

I am trying to batch print a series of Inventor dwg's (2012) thru task scheduler.

However, if I try to select any files that have a "-" in the filename it get teh following error: "....... The above filename is invalid."

Filename example:  XXXXXX-XXXX.dwg

I have tried files without the "-" and they appear to work just fine from the same folder.

Is Task Scheduler limited on characters?  If so what are the limitations on filenames that Task Scheduler will work?

AutoCAD Map 3D :: How To Import Geotiffs And Series Of Points

Sep 26, 2011

New user of autocad map 3d. My company has tasked me with figuring out how to plot updates (new and modified cell towers) that come to us as lat/long coordinates on a aeronautical sectional map from the FAA's website.

The sectional maps come to us as GeoTiffs at 1:500,000 scale.  We could plot these out by hand but I am trying to make the process a lot faster by using Map3d. My questions are:

1- How do i import the geotiffs keeping the right scale, projection, etc.

2-How do i insert a series of points at the same time

3- Can i output the file as a tiff when im done?

AutoCad 2D :: How To Select All Entities On A Series Of Layers

Oct 10, 2012

I need a function similar to Qselect.

In this case I would like to select all entities on a series of layers. (i.e.: a-site-* or a-fill*). I know I can do this with qselect by doing each layer one at a time and append the existing selection set.

Instead, I've been locking all layers except the series I'm looking for, but it seems like there should be a quicker way.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Create A Profile From A Series Of Points

Dec 15, 2013

I have collected points across a 500m distance with easting, northing and height values. This line of points is measuring a stepped slope of a field.

I want, if possible, to create a profile (something that looks like a slice of the slope, so that the steps and profile of the slope is clear.

Can this be achieved? Will you be able to guide me through the process?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Extrude Preview (Series Of 3D Faces)

May 6, 2013

I'm trying to extrude a series of 3D faces, a very large series, over 200,000 3D faces. I´ve done this before only it was not on so many faces as I can select only like 3,000 faces aprox at any one time or the computer crashes.

I think this problem could be solved, or at least I could save some time, if the extruding preview could be turned off. By extruding preview I mean that when I enter the extrude command and select the objects to extrude, then immediatly there's a preview of what the objects would look like once they're extruded and that's what's causing the delay and the crashes.

Is there any way this could be turned off?

I've attached an image.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Recreate Long Series Of Curves From Arc Specs

May 8, 2013

I have a copy of an old plan showing curved boundaries which I wish to recreate in C3D. There's lots of connecting arcs, all of which are annotated like:

RAD 15
CHORD 21.213
ARC 23.56
T.L. 15

I can see that the first line is the radius, the 2nd and 3rd lines are the length and orientation of the arc chord, the 4th line is the arc length. I've been able to get a correct result by firstly drawing the chords, then adding arcs with the appropriate radii between the two ends of each chord. However, I'm sure there's a quicker and easier way. Sometimes the arcs are separated by short sections of straight line which have length and bearing details as well. 

Attached is a screen shot of a short length.

AutoCad 3D :: Applying Surface / Turning Series Of Curves Into Solid Object

Mar 23, 2012

I am currently working on a project that involves some basic collision simulation of an LNG ship in Solidworks. However, before I can do that I need to turn the ship (which at the moment exists as a series of curves, see attachment!) into a solid object, which I can then export as an IGES file.

So far I have tried the PRESSPULL command and it hasn't worked at all, only produced a "not responding message".

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Recording Macro Or Series Of Operations In 2007

Oct 19, 2012

Any easy way to create a macro or record a series of commands in 2007?  It's my understanding that 2009 has this feature "built in". 

I want to "record" a short series of commands/actions to use as a example to other novice users at my company.

It should be something that they can "run" and watch on their screen. (like trim a circle to get a arc)

I have downloaded/tried several general screen recorders but the resulting file is way too big. (20MB AVI)

I would prefer a Macro that would run right in Autocad.  Maybe a third party plugin is available?

I am not looking to create a traditional Macro to use as a time saving device.

AutoCad :: Arial Font Symbols And PDF Plotter - Series Of Boxes Plotted For Each Character

Aug 22, 2009

I'm using ACAD LT 2010. I use the basic Arial font for all text and the mtext command to insert text. On occasion I use some of the standard symbols such as the degree symbol (%%d) and +/- symbol (%%p) among others. When I plot to the printer everything prints fine, but when I plot to PDF using the standard DWG to PDF plotter setup that comes with LT2010 the symbols and usually the entire line that the symbol is on either doesn't plot or it plots a series of boxes for each character in that line. I experimented with a couple of other different fonts and the same symbols. Some plotted to PDF correctly others did as stated above.

AutoCad 3D :: Create Series Of Trays In Shape Of Letters - Unable To Sweep 1 Selected Object

Aug 14, 2013

I need to create a series of "trays" that are in the shape of letters. I am having some success with certain letters, but zero success with others.

I am creating these letters using a curve brought in from illustrator, and sweeping the profile that I want to use around the curve to create the outside.I am then using presspull to create the base of the tray.

However, sometimes the sweep command will simply say "unable to sweep 1 selected object" with no explanation as to why.

Sometimes I will get the shape that I want, but it is facing the wrong way, and I cannot fix it. Other times it will simply stall and then delete both the curve and the profile.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Creating IDW Template

Jan 6, 2014

I'm recently using inventor a lot. But now IM try to make a .IDW template with my own line styles and thickness and stuff. This is what I do:

I open an exciting IDW file. I go to manage and click style editor. Then I create a new style. Called test style.  I make sure I activate my new style and I go to layers, where I change the line weight from 0.51mm to 0.25 mm (example)

I save my change and close style editor... After that I save my copy as template (called test 6-1) and close the drawing. I open inventor and create a new file. Select the template I created. I get this style conflict.... I don't fully understand this error... How can I fix this problem?

When my new template opens, I check the line weight by the style editor but the weight detente change... Its still 0.51 mm.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Creating 3D PDF Files

Jun 7, 2013

I have searched this forum for a way to create 3D pdf files directly from Inventor or other "free" software but have not found anything that works very well. Today I found an answer, it is by using the Bentley Viewer.  I had to "Save Copy As" my Inventor .iam file to "AutoCAD DWG Files.dwg". Then open it up inside the Bentley Viewer, go to the "Print pdf" button and select the "Print to 3D" button. It will even show some colors.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Creating A New Template

May 23, 2013

Is there anything wrong with creating a new template this way:

1. Create a new model for a new client.
2. Create new drawing based on the standard template.
3. Bring in model views and create new title block, notes, symbols, etc. specific to new client.
4. Save drawing as a client specific template in my template directory.
5. Open new client template and erase all drawing views but leave notes, symbols, title block, etc.
6. Save.

The question is, doing it this way, will it cause problems? Will the drawing views somehow still be linked to the template? Should I erase the drawing views BEFORE saving as a template? Is there a better way ti create a template?
