AutoCAD Inventor :: Include Sketch In DXF Export

Jul 30, 2012

Is it possible to include Model Sketches when exporting a DXF from a drawing document?

Previously I could do a simple export : 

ThisDoc.Document.SaveAs(DXFNAME , True)
Which used the options I'd set in the 'DXF File Export Options'

However, now I need to include some geometry from 'Sketch 2' within my DXF.

I've looked at the TranslatorAddIn Interface but can't see any options to include sketches in DXFs.

I'm using Inventor 2011

AutoCAD Inventor :: Save IPT As IGES And Include 3D Sketch?

Jan 28, 2013

I am using Inventor 2013. I want to save an IPT as IGES and include the 3-D sketch. That is a simple operation which was performed correctly.  Whe I open the IGES file I want to be able to EDIT the 3-D sketch or our supplier would want the ability to do that.

The 3-D sketch shows up but there is no option to EDIT.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Export Sketch From IPT To IDW

Jul 26, 2013

I am working on iLogic models and have a sketch feature in a part that is used as a referance for a caulk bead. The sketch is in an IPT and is a stand alone feature. I am trying to have this sketch feature be visible in and IDW file of the product I am developing but cannot seem to find a solution. Is this even possible and if so what am I doing wrong?

I am doing it this way because the caulk bead spans the entire height of the part which can change via different custom parameters, therefore the caulk bead needs to be able to change with the part while not losing its sketch references.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Export Start And End Point Of Various Lines In Sketch To Excel File?

Oct 26, 2012

I have been searching for a macro to export the start and end point of a line coordinates to excel, but I can only find information on how to export 3D Points.

Is it possible to program a macro that allows me to export the start and end point of various lines in a sketch?

The objective of this is to connect an excel file which is updated when I create a line with it correspondent points, then i could not only import these x,y,z coordinates from excel to inventor but I whould be able to update my spreedsheet whenever I change my sketch.

Photoshop Elements :: Sketch Filters Don't Include Comic Or Graphic Novel Options

Aug 24, 2013

I bought PSE 11 for Mac a few months ago, and have finally been able to spend some time examining the features.  However, I noticed that my "Sketch" filters do not include the comic or graphic novel options.  Were these two omitted from the Mac-version?  Or do I have a faulty copy of the program?

I shoot pictures in RAW (Pentax PEF format) which includes gps data. As the pictures are being imported the Lightroom prompts for reverse geo mapping and detects the data and locates it on the map from map module. However, when exported in JPG, the GPS is missing in the Exif. It was working in 4.1. Again, it did not work sometimes in 4.1.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Shared Sketch Generates Sketch Doctor Error - Feature Suppressed

Sep 21, 2011

I've created a shared sketch and have used it with various features. Sometime those features are suppressed. The model works fine but the shared sketch generates a sketch doctor error because the feature that created it has been suppressed. Is there anyway to make the sketch suppressed so it doesn't trigger a sketch doctor error? Inventor 2013

AutoCAD Inventor :: Copy Part Sketch Into Drawing Sketch

Sep 20, 2012

How do I duplicate the 2D line work from a part level sketch into a drawing level (overlay) sketch?

I started a simple 2D piping system diagram sketch by opening a new part file and using a sketch to stick draw the system schematic including some annotations.  Then I opened a new drawing file and made a base view of the part file to bring a view of the original sketch into the drawing.

I realize now that it would have been much easier to have created the schematic directly in a 2D sketch at the drawing level, which would have made editing the annotations much easier at the drawing level, and there is really no need for the part file to exist.  I have no intention of creating a 3D model or "real" part in the .ipt file, was just using it as a jumping off point to sketch.

I was thinking that I could correct my error in judgment by just copying the sketch and pasting it into a new sketch on the drawing, but it doesn't want to work that way.  I have tried copying both the whole sketch at the browser level, and the entire sketch contents (all of the lines and annotations) from the opened part sketch, but when I attempt to paste either of those into the drawing, paste does not seem to be an option.  I'd rather not have to draw the whole thing again, as in typical fashion, my once simple sketch has grown in proportion and complexity from its simple beginning.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Get Sketch Point Data From Sketch Entity

Dec 3, 2013

I was trying to query some sketch points data from a profile Path using code as below. However the program stopped without telling the reason.

Code below:
i = 0;
foreach (ProfileEntity oSourceProfileEntity in oProfilePath) { switch (oProfilePath[i].SketchEntity.Type) { case ObjectTypeEnum.kSketchArcObject: { SketchArc srcSkArc = default(SketchArc); srcSkArc = (SketchArc) oSourceProfileEntity.SketchEntity; // error points[i] = srcSkArc.StartSketchPoint.Geometry; break; } default: { SketchLine srcSkLine = default(SketchLine); srcSkLine =(SketchLine) oProfilePath[i].SketchEntity; // error points[i] = srcSkLine.StartSketchPoint.Geometry; break; } } i++; }

AutoCAD Inventor :: Converting 3D Sketch To 2D Sketch From IGS File Using Wires?

Aug 1, 2011

First we imported an ".igs" file to inventor, which produced "wires".  Then by promoting the wires it produced a 3-d sketch. 

The model is in one plane and 2-D, and we are trying to use Ansys 2-D analysis, but in-order to do so it needs to be in a 2-D sketch.

The model is too large to be redrawn on a 2-D plane, how to convert it to a 2-D sketch

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Include Axis In IFeature

Nov 3, 2005

The Axis is part of the iFeature, yet when I place it there is nothing available.

The objective for this is to automatically include an axis to mate to with the iFeature. The axis runs through a centerpoint on the iFeature.

I have a feeling the answer is I can't but I am hoping it is operator error.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Include All Surfaces In Drawing With Assembly With Sub Assemblies

Using Parts created with "As Application surfaces" (only to aid positioning in assemblies). Main assembly built up from sub assemblies which include these parts have the issue on the displaye views in the drawing. When creating drawing views of the Main assembly the application surfaces cannot be hidden by deselecting the "Include All Surfaces" option on each assembly view.

They can be hidden as, shown with an assembly made up only of parts.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Include All Surfaces Option Grayed Out On Browser

Aug 5, 2013

Am using Inventor 2013.  I have imported some surface models into an IAM.  They are not visible in the idw.  When I attempted to make them visible by right-clicking on the item in the idw browser, then selecting the "Include all Surfaces" option, the option was grayed out.  How can this function be enabled?

Also, can "Include all surfaces" be enabled in advance for all surface models/all views in the idw so that it does not have to be done after creation of each view?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Include / Exclude Imates From Two Parts And 1 Whole Part

Nov 15, 2013

I want to exclude imates from two parts and 1 whole part at the same time.

This is my situation:

PartA with 2 sets of imates(for constrains on 3 axis for no movement) on the right side. Set A and set B.
PartB with 2 sets of imates, one on the left side set A and one on the right side, set C.
PartC with 2 sets of imates on the left side. Set B and set C.

i want, in a iPart, part A connected with part C connection with iMate set B. And in the same ipart i want Part A, B and C connected respectively with iMate sets A,C

So in the first situation i want iMates A and C and part B to be suppressed and in the second i want iMate set B to be suppressed.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Tube And Pipe Include Geometry Malfunction

Jun 11, 2013

Inventor 2013. I use user workplanes to define my pipe runs. I set them up in the top level tube and pipe assy, include them in routes then constrain sketch geometry to them. I have done lots of this in my assembly and it has worked fine. They need to be visible and clicked on in the model window; for some reason you can't click on them in the browser. Now it won't include them in my routes. It thinks about it for half a second but does nothing. It will include planes from solid model geometry, origin planes, and user workplanes created in the run.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Can Change Default Naming System And Include Parameters In Name

When I make a part in Frame Generator, by default it will name the part a big lengthy name like "frame 000001 etc etc". Is there any way that I can change the default naming system and include parameters in the name (the parameters is not necessary, but would be useful).

ALSO, if I name 2 parts the same name will it show up as "QTY 2" in my parts list?
