AutoCAD Inventor :: Provide Buttons On Toolbars For Object Visibility

Feb 11, 2004

1. Why is it when I do a 3D sketch, make the sweep, then "Return" I always get a constraint error? It tells me that I made a constraint to geometry which is no longer available. The geometry IS available. I always have to delete the constraints just to move on. I'm sure it has something to do with the planes or axis I created while doing my 3D sketch.

2. Why does Adaptively equal inefficiency? The more I use it the more I have to fix those darn cross-part association failures. It takes less time to not use adaptively and use the "old fashion way". adaptively rarely, if ever, works correctly with sheet metal parts. I say again - Junk.

3. Would it be so difficult to give us buttons for standard views on our tool bars? You know, like AutoCAD - which I'm sure you have heard of by now. An XY, YZ, XZ, button is all I ask for. You went to the trouble to give us RMB Isometric view but stopped there.

4. Is it too much to ask to provide buttons on the toolbars for Object Visibility? Why make me go through the View, Object Visibility menu three times in a row to turn off User Axis, User Work Planes, and User Work points. It will be six times in a row if you need to turn off the other stuff. Heck, at least make the darn menu tree stay open until I've selected multiple objects to turn on or off.

AutoCad :: Editing Existing Toolbars And Buttons

Mar 24, 2012

I am having trouble editing existing imported toolbars. Also, I cannot retrieve my custom toolbars into 2012. When I convert older menus (mnu) into 2012 the tool bars all have question marks on them, and my custom toolbars are not listed. I cannot go into CUI customization and click on a button to edit it's command and or icon. The older version of cad is not on my new system so I cannot use the migration tool.

Photoshop :: Adding Buttons, Toolbars

Jan 28, 2009

I processing fairly large groups of images, and would like to be able to add a button to access common functions (or better yet, sequence of functions)

I do this with keyboard shortcuts now, but I'm ending up losing access to other functions (PS dibs on has all the good keys, and can't map to the others)

I could also remove half of my current need by overriding the Pixel Correction default behaviour, though I'm given to understand there is no way to do this.

So if it is possible,  how to provide 2 set of pre-defined input to inventor commands throught API?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Unfolding The Tube To Provide Flat Profile?

Sep 23, 2011

I have tube that has been generated on frame generator and notched to run into the side of another tube.

Is there anyway of unfolding the tube to provide a flat profile.

What i ultimately want to do is print the flat pattern off at 1:1 scale, cut it out and wrap it around the actual steel tube to be able to trace the profile onto the tube so i can cut the profile roughly before offering the two tubes together.

Softimage :: Ice Object Visibility

Mar 19, 2013

Can I use ice to manipulate the visibility of an object? example; a particle enters an object and causes it to become visible but once the particle leaves the object the object disappears. Ive tried using test methods like test inside geometry, but I cant find the attribute to flag the view visibility as true or false. Been beating myself up for a couple days now I have drug the misc. visibility attributes from the explorer into ice but I cant flag them on or off.

3ds Max Animation :: Object Visibility Switch To 0 Automatically

Aug 4, 2011

I want to animate a cut-away of a house. Slice the corner off it so we can see into the rooms.

If I make the outer shell of the house as a single object, I could boolean it with a moving box to have the cutaway appear.

I'd rather build it from bricks, and have them disappear when my moving 'cutaway' box intersects them. It should leave a nice jagged brick-edged hole.

So - is there any way to have an object's visibility switch to 0 automatically if the object is contained in another (unrenderable) object?

(There are so many things I'd use this for. If you want lots of objects to appear in sequence, like a long row of dominoes, there's gotta be a quick way of having them pop into existence, rather than custom scripting or manually staggering keys in dope/track view)

I'm still on Max 9,

3ds Max :: Object Visibility / Can Ghost Other Two Parts In But Not Show What Is Going On Behind Them

Oct 21, 2011

I have created a model containing three interlocking parts. I now need to do a version showing one of the parts with the other two parts ghosted in.

I changed the object visibility of the two I need to show ghosted to 0.3. When I do this the part is see through and shows all the hidden detail at the back of the part.

Is there a way I can ghost the other two parts in but not show what is going on behind them? I tried all the settings in object visibility but nothing seems to work? Is there another way to achieve faded parts?

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: How To Provide Multiple Daylight Subassemblies With One Assembly

Jul 24, 2013

Have a question regarding multiple daylight subassemblies, don't know if it is possible.  So I have an assembly with a trench SA in cut condition and a project to surface in fill condition, I built the corridor with this assembly and most of things look fine.  However, there is a short stretch (in cut condition) of the corridor that I would like to modify such that a trench is not provided.  I know I can create a new assembly with my desire condition, then create a new region and drop that assembly there, but I am wondering if there any other way to achieve my goal without another assembly.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Dynamically Add Buttons To Addin To Modify XML Entry

Oct 23, 2012

I'd like to make it so that a user may add a button for my addin by only having to modify an xml entry.  

None of the values (name, descrip, tooltip) are null, and reading from the xml is working properly.  Each internal name is unique. Why this code would result in an error?  The error message is attached.

If there's a known way to dynamically add buttons(in a loop), I'd be happy to use an established method as well.

 Element[] QueryArray = query.ToArray();foreach (XElement item in QueryArray){string name = item.Attribute("Name").Value;string descrip = item.Attribute("Description").Value;string tooltip = item.Attribute("Tooltip").Value;tempButton = null;tempButton = oControlDefinitions.AddButtonDefinition(name, name, CommandTypesEnum.kEditMaskCmdType, m_AddinClientID, descrip, tooltip, Type.Missing, Type.Missing);oStandardsLinks.CommandControls.AddButton(tempButton);}

AutoCAD Inventor :: Doesn't Work With Programmable Mouse Buttons

I purchased an Inland rf 5 button mouse to use for the F4 rotate and F5 view return. The three programmable buttons work in LT and other programs, but not in inventor 5.3. Is there a setting I am missing? I have the latest driver for the mouse installed and as I said it works well in other software.

The mouse vendor says it's Inventor, not the mouse.

AutoCAD Inventor :: IPN Part Visibility

Jul 27, 2012

The client I have has 1 seat of factory Ultimate and 8 seats of factory premium.

The issue is the premium seats have an issue when you turn the visibility off on a part in the IPN you cannot turn it back on. This is on all the seats of the premium. There is no issue with Ultimate.

The service pack did not fix the issue. Now I know Autodesk there will never be a fix for this unless I up-grade seems to be the Autodesk way in the past 3 years.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Turn Off Some Visibility?

Apr 8, 2013

The attached part has multiple holes in multiple locations...... I want to show in the .idw one set "row" around the circumference at a time.

So I want to show set one, how far in from the end of the tube, then how many and at what degrees around the 360*. to do this i can only suppress the other features right now.

so when I make another View those same parts are suppressed and i cant change it around otherwise it messes with the holes I want and don't want to show in the previous view.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sketch Visibility IAM And IPT

Mar 20, 2012

I sometimes edit parts in assemblies. When I turn sketch visibility on or off it does not stay the way I left it. I should be able to edit a part in part view or assembly and the view setting off or on should be how it was last saved. If I saved an ipt with the vision it should be on in any & all assemblies it lives in but its not. I have noticed the difference in new version 2012 - 2011 was no problem.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Turn Off UCS Visibility?

Apr 17, 2013

See attached screenshot.

Somehow my top level assembly shows the UCS triads for hundreads of my parts (but not all of them). I know I didn't turn the visibility of all these UCS triads on manually. Now I cannot get them to turn off.

When I toggle the visibility status of a few and save the file they come back when the file is reopened.

Note, they are NOT visibile in their respective part files, just in my top level assembly.
