AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic FOR Loop To Unsuppress Features

Sep 10, 2013

I am currently designing a heat exchanger and want to adjust the number of water channel using iLogic. The number of channels to be active is based on the channel dimensions, and is calculated in my excel spreadsheet, but up to a maximum of 19. This is stored in the parameter "no_channel". Each channel is a seperate feature (extrusion) and named from "Channel 1" though "Channel 19".

My idea of doing this automation was to have iLogic suppress all the features, and then doing a closed loop to unsuppres the features I want active:
Feature.IsActive("Channel 1") = FalseFeature.IsActive("Channel 2") = False...Feature.IsActive("Channel 19") = FalseFor i = 1 To no_channelFeature.IsActive("Channel"(i)) = TrueNext
However, this gives me the following error:

Error in rule: Number of channels, in document: Radiator fin side.ipt

Feature.IsActive: No feature found with the name: "h".

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic Rule To Measure Loop Length

Oct 30, 2013

I have just started to use ilogic, what i want to do is measure the length of a loop in a sketch and then use this measurement as a parameter.

I have found this rule that will measure the loop length and display it in a message box

Dim se As SketchEntity = ThisDoc.Document.ComponentDefinition.Sketches(1).SketchLines(1) 
MsgBox(ThisApplication.MeasureTools.GetLoopLength(se)*10 & " mm") 

but i do not know how to capture the measurement as a parameter .

AutoCAD Inventor :: Loop Through Specific File In Folder

Jul 19, 2013

I am trying to create a logic rule to replace the model reference in a idw file and then save as using the new file reference name. I am able to do this for individual files or components within an assembly file.

However what I would like is to check through all files of a certain type (for example ipt with filenames beginning "SSUA" ) in a specific folder. 

The following code from Curtis Waguespack works well for individual selected files but I would like to take it a stage further with the above parameters.

Dim oDoc as DocumentoDoc = ThisDoc.DocumentDim oRefFile As FileDescriptorDim oOrigRefName As Object For Each oRefFile In oDoc.file.ReferencedFileDescriptors'get the full file path to the original internal referencesoOrigRefName = oRefFile.FullFileName'present a File Selection dialogDim oFileDlg As inventor.FileDialog = NothingInventorVb.Application.CreateFileDialog(oFileDlg)oFileDlg.InitialDirectory

AutoCAD Inventor :: VB To Change Filename As Loop Progresses

Jun 8, 2012

I have VB code that loops through and utilizes Excel data to pick which file(s) to open, update, and close.  Then it opens the appropriate .idw file, updates it and saves it as a .pdf. 

The line of code I have now is simple:

_invApp.ActiveDocument.SaveAs("C:UsersxxDesktopA60.pdf", True)

and that writes the file to my desktop as a .pdf.

However, as the loop runs over and over, it will find another data set that is the same A60 type, so it will want to save OVER that .pdf it's already created.

How do I go about having a variable filename?  Something where it would add a _01 _02 _03 (or similar) to the end of the filename (i.e. A60_01.pdf, A60_02.pdf).

AutoCAD Inventor :: Loop Select Sketch To Create Boundary

Sep 26, 2011

I am not sure exactly why this is a limited feature of Inventor 2011 but when you want to select a sketch to create a boundary patch you have to select each part of the sketch in sequence.  It's a pretty laborious task.  I am looking to a way to automate this using i logic.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Split Face Open Loop Error

I am attempting to split a face so I have a good area to apply a load in simulation and 3/4 of the areas split just fine but I CANNOT get the 4th area to split! This is all just projected geometry but left and right are symmetrical so I can't figure out why the L side works but not the R side.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Redefine Center Point Of Loop Of Edges?

Mar 10, 2012

way to redefine a point that was placed in a model with a "Center of Loop of Edges" command?  Inventor doesn't seem to recognize type of placement unless it's been selected from the Point drop-down menu, but picking this in the midst of a redefine only creates a new point, it doesn't redefine the original point.

As it is, I've been forced to just delete the original point, create a new one and go from there.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Roller Chain Generator Without A Closed Loop?

Dec 20, 2013

I'm designing a lift truck with a "chain over" lift - the lift cylinder has a sprocket mounted on the end of the rod, and the chain is grounded on one side.  The other end of the chain is mounted to a lifting carriage so that as the cylinder extends and pushes the sprocket up, the chain rolls over it and the carriage moves up (at twice the speed of the cylinder).  This is nothing new - it's pretty much how every single fork truck in the world operates.

My question is this:  can I use the roller chain generator to model this chain, or should I model the links and array them along a path?  My thinking is that if I can use the chain generator, I should be able to animate the chain using Dynamic Simulation.  But the chain generator seems to require a minimum of 2 sprockets in order to work - there's no way that I can see to have a "non-looped" chain or any way to just ground the end of the chain.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Creating Wire Loop Between Two Connector Pins

Sep 27, 2011

I'd like to use the Cable and Wiring tools to model some fibre optics. I can see how this could work well, being able to set and check for the minimum bend radius. However, I'd also like to include a loop of greater than minimum bend radius between the two connection points, we tend to do this to reduce strain on the fibres. Any elegant solution for inserting the loop?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Creating Macro To Run From Assembly That Will Loop Through Each BOM Item

Sep 28, 2012

I'd like to create a macro that I can run from within an assembly that will loop through each BOM item and add the quantity req'd to a custom property within the component.  I'm very familiar with VBA from Office, but I'm new to it with respect to Inventor so I'm pretty fuzzy with object titles and options. 

Here's an outline of what I'd like to do:

Execute Macro from within Assembly file

For Each BOM Item to # of BOM Items

If Vendor = "Make" then
Set Component Custom Property "Qty_Reqd" = Total Qty from BOM

Next BOM Item

AutoCAD Inventor :: Get Rule To Re-run / Loop Through When Retry Button Is Pressed

Apr 16, 2013

I am trying to setup some rules to print various PDF files which we have managed to do without any problems.

The bit I am stuck on is when one of the PDF files being saved is open by another user.

We have been able to error trap it when it is open by showing a message box on error asking them to close the file befopre continuing.  The current message box being used is the Retry / Cancel box.

When the user clicks Retry we would like it to re-run the rule, or loops through the rule and check is the file is still open.  If the file is open return the same error, and if the file has been closed save the PDF file.  When Cancel is pressed it ends the rule (This Bit has been done).

My questions is how do I get the rule to re-run / loop through when the retry button is pressed.

Is it also possible to show the user who has the file open (or Previewing it in a Window Explorer)?

I have attached the Code currently Being used but I can post it here of preferred?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Analyze Sketch - Total Number Of Lines In Loop

Jun 28, 2013

Being all new and complete virgin-like, to ilogic, I would like to know wether it is possible to analyze a sketch (wenn it is being closed)?

What I want to analyze is:

Does the sketch contain a fully constrained closed loop?

Does this closed loop consist only of straight lines?

What is the total number of lines in the loop?

Next fase is:

Create an excel-sheet with the following information:

For each line in this closed loop i wish to add the length of the line, and the angle to the next line (consequently on the internal side of the loop, resulting in angles from 0 to 180 degrees).

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Stop Creating Splines Of In IDW

Sep 23, 2011

how to stop Inventor from creating splines of in IDW where the geometry is in fact a true arc or circle?

This is absolutely ridiculous and maddening!

If it is a freaking arc or a radius, then make it a freaking arc or a radius instead of a spline!!!

If not, then give AutoCAD a tool to convert a spline into a true arc!!!

Come on Autodesk! Not everyone is using your product for design, some of us are doing so to actually make the damm parts that are drawn in Inventor! A spline that supposed to be an arc is wicked difficult - if not impossible - to send to a waterjet, laser or EDM to cut properly!!!
