AutoCAD Architecture :: Project Fields In Title Block Sheet Template

Jun 26, 2012

I've created a sheet template that includes Fields to populate the sheet with the Project Name and location among others like scale, etc. When I create the new sheet in the project navigator most of the fields populate with the correct information based on the parameters set in the project. However, it consistantly does not populate the Project name and location. When I click the field and ensure that the attribute is set correctly then it renders the correct information. The problem is this ends up being a manual operation yet it still reads as a smart tag. Why do these not populate automatically?

Here's my process:

Create dwt for sheet file and include xref of title block.

Create a block with attributes that link to AEC Project, CurrentSheetTitle, etc. and insert into dwt.

In project navigator I create new sheet and select my template.

Information does not populate.

But when I view the block and close (no edits) it then links.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sheet Number In Title Block?

Aug 19, 2013

I placed a Sheet Propertie called Sheet Number in my title block.

I want only my sheet number in my title block and not the follow number.

I found the code made bij Curtis Waguespack and changed Mid to Left.

In the message box it shows the number i want but in the title block it shows only the follow number.

My sheet number is 400:1

why dusn't show only the number 400 in the titleblock?

i = 1
SheetNumber = Left(oSheet.Name, InStr(1, oSheet.Name, ":")- 1)
MessageBox.Show(SheetNumber, oSheet.Name)

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sheet / Border / Title Block Default Margins

Sep 28, 2011

Is there a way to change the default margin offsets (i.e. the distance between the edge of your border or title block to the edge of your paper), without using the "Insert Drawing Border" option?

I would have thought you could do this through the "Edit Sheet" or "Define New Title Block / Border" options. I have multiple customized title blocks, which each require their own margin offsets.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Hole Table Formatting - Different Text Depending On The Type Of Hole

Nov 6, 2012

I've got a template with a set of Object defaults for an Inch drawing and a set for a Metric drawing.  I've just noticed that within my metric set, if I insert a hole table with tapped holes, the font on the tapped holes doesn't match the other hole types.  I'm searched around, but all the settings for the hole table style reference the same text style.  (Please see the attached image.)

So is there a way to set a certain hole type to have a certain font or size within a hole table?  Because if there is, I'd obviously like to remove it.....  But I can't seem to figure out where the issue is.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Can't Select Hole Edges When Creating Hole Table

Nov 19, 2012

I have had this problem intermittently for a few weeks since going to Inventor 2013 SP1.1.  I have a part within an assembly and that part has holes created in it before assembling it with other parts.  Now when I try and create a hole table in a drawing of the assembly I cannot select hole edges and the hole table is blank when trying to create it automatically from view selection.  I originally thought it may be an alignment issue but I have since aligned everything correctly and it still persists.  I can create the hole table if I import in just the part into the drawing but it will not allow me to create the table on the whole assembly. 

I can also create the hole table if I use "centred pattern" and create cross hairs on all of the holes however it does not give me correct annotations for the holes as shown in attachment and I can manually change the annotations but seriously this should not be required.  As shown in the screen shot it reads as A1 down to K1 instead of A1 to A10. .

AutoCAD Inventor :: Scale In Title Block - No Prompted Entry / Keep Current Sheet Active

Apr 9, 2013

 First, it requires there to be a prompted entry text box in the title block named <SCALE>, is there any way to write to a textbox that is not prompted entry?  The prompt when a new drawing or sheet is created is misleading and makes users think they need to manually fill out the prompt.  Secondly, this code works on multi-sheet drawings but it concludes by making the last sheet active.  Since we are triggering this rule before save it's a nuisance to have the drawing switch sheets everytime you do a save.  Ideally, the current active sheet should remain active when the rule runs.  Here is the
For Each oSheet In ThisApplication.ActiveDocument.Sheets
If oSheet.TitleBlock Is Nothing Or oSheet.DrawingViews.count=0 Then Exit Sub

AutoCAD Inventor :: Table Driven IFeatures In A Hole Table?

Oct 16, 2013

I have a part where I have placed a number of table driven iFeatures.  These features generate parameters in the model that I can see in the parameter table.  I am trying to find a way to have these iFeature parameters show up in the hole table in my drawing.

By 'exporting' the parameters, I have been able to get the values to show in notes and drawing view labels but I can't find a way to add them as a 'New Property' in my hole table.

AutoCad :: Editable Table Within Dynamic Title Block

Jan 24, 2012

I've created a titleblock with a menu to select sheet size, a single set of attributes that serve all the different sheets, but now I'm trying to find a way to add a table.

The table is to sit above the title box and include information on: New revision number
Text detailing changes since the last revision (might be single or multiple line text)
Date of new revision . The bottom line needs to sit flush to the top of the title block so the top line would be moving up the sheet as new lines are added if that makes sense?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: SYNC Title Block To Sheet Set Manager?

Aug 15, 2013

I'm not up to speed in configuring title blocks with sheet set manager and I've come into this situation unexpectedly.

I had to come up with a set of P&P sheets in a hurry to assist a contractor in providing a rough estimate for a sewer run, so I generated the sheets using the preconfigured imperial sheet set template. Afterwards I've switched out the border and title block generated by the template with our standard blocks. Our block attributes are old school and do not use fields. Now I am trying to upgrade those old attributes by replacing them with fields that reference the Sheet Set attributes.

Here is the problem: when inserting the field for the sheet number I can either use the CurrentSheetNumber or the SheetSetPlaceholder attribute. If I use CurrentSheetNumber, the title block shows the correct sheet number for the current sheet (the sheet I am making the edits from). However all the other sheets show that same number. In other words the fields do not show the corresponding sheet numbers from SSM. If I use SheetSetPlaceholder none of the title blocks will update to show the sheet number.

I believe I should be using the placeholder field but I can't get it to synchronize it with the SSM. Is there a way to make this work?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Retaining Title Block Prompted Entries When Changing Title Blocks

Apr 26, 2013

The title blocks that we use have prompted entries in them and I would like to find a way using iLogic to copy the entries from one title block to another within the same drawing; i.e.. if the user decides to change from an A2 to A1 drawing.

I already have an iLogic rule which allows the user to change the active border, title block and sheet size based on a form selection but would like it to capture the prompted entries already entered and re-use them after the change.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Hole Table Dimension

Apr 23, 2012

I have a drawing of a sheet metal part that I did late last year.  I used a Hole Table to dimension all the holes.

Fastforward to today.  I added two holes that are different in size than any other hole.  So when I opened the drawing it automatically added them to the Hole Table and gave them tag #'s in a new group and it kept the grouping in Alpha order.  A, B, C were there before and it added D.  Great, that's the way to do it.

Then I decided I needed to change the hole size.  The change would keep the size different than any other hole on the part still.  I go into the drawing and it change the size in the Table BUT, it also moved them up to the top of the list but kept the tag # as D*.

How do I get those two entries back to the bottom where they belong to keep them in order?

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Put Hole Feature Into IPart Table

Mar 26, 2013

I have created an iPart which uses the Hole Feature (counterbore hole).  The hole is not threaded.  Is there a way to put the Hole Feature into the iPart table so when a user enters specific values, he/she could type in or select a bolt size and the counter bore hole feature will use the correct dimensions for said bolt size (ie.  I would like the counterbore holes for an M6 Socket Head Cap Screw.  So instead of typing in the counterbore hole diameter, depth, and bolt diameter, etc... it would automatically enter the default values.)  Or is this something that must use iLogic?

I have a sheet metal part which has several holes in, from which I have created a hole table.
