AutoCAD Inventor :: Storing Custom Material Image?

Aug 27, 2012

Where the proper location to store custom images for new custom materials?  We do not use vault and I currently store everything locally.  I found where Inventor stores all of the material library images in C:Program Files (x86)Common FilesAutodesk SharedMaterialsTextures.  In that "Textures" folder there are Inventor material images stored in folders named "1","2 "and "3".  Should I paste my custom image in all three folders, or a completely different location?  I need Inventor to find this material and image for every new project so I save it to my library but I do not know where to store the image.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Default (custom) Material For Custom Content Center Parts

Feb 21, 2013

When inserting a content center part for which we have to choose a material, we would like to have a custom material as a default (material with name: "No material selected"). So when selecting no material for this part (for example when the user forgets to select a specific material), the default material (in this case material "No material selected") will be active. In this way, we can see in one view across the BOM which parts have no material assigned yet.

How can this be achieved in the content center (editor)?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Add Material To Custom Library

Jan 29, 2013

I have recently started playing with the new materials and appearances browsers - what a nightmare.

So I created a custom library as described in the "Materials and Appearances" whitepaper from Autodesk.

Bottom left corner of material browser > create new material

> edit material: change its name, density etc

Why can I not add it to the new custom library - from document materials?I tried to drag and drop - no success.

I tried to right click > add to > xxx material library - no success.It does however let me drag and drop to the "favorites".

AutoCAD Inventor :: Custom Material Library Keeps Failing

Feb 14, 2013

I have gone thru what appears to be the correct steps in creating a custom material library a total of 3 times.

Once I finish customizing the library while in Inventor, I add it to my project file and make it the "active" library.  I test it with each of my part & assembly templates on my local machine without an issue.  When I log into another work station, locate and add the new library to their project file Inventor gives me a "no materials found".  So I go back to my machine to check and the library is no longer valid for me either.

I can see the library on the server, the file size is 3.6MB so it has substance. I cannot figure out what I am doing that is causing the library from locking up completely when I try to use it with another work station. Also, if any way to make my library usable again that would save me about 8 hours of work.

all of our stations use the "generic.ipj" project file.

AutoCAD Inventor :: 2013 Custom Material Library

May 4, 2012

I've made my own material library containing a short list of materials from the Inventor default library.  And I have set my Project ipj to use it as the default library.  All works OK.  But, every time I make a new project ipj I have to go find my custom library adsklib file to add it to the project.  Is there a certain folder the adsklib file need to live in so that new projects will pick it up automatically?

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Add Custom Materials In Actual Material Properties

Jul 4, 2011

I am looking for ways to add actual custom materials - not (just) in appearance, but in actual material properties (elasticity, etc). I have looked at wiki and searched this forum (and others) but I haven't been able to find anything of the sort... but the properties of the few aluminium alloys available are not those that we use... besides that we need them at specific temperature ranges (and honestly, I haven't been able to find any temperature controls in the FEA yet either.) And.. is there a more direct, faster, way to assign materials then [big I Pro button] > iPropperties > Physical? Right click on the solid and selecting "material" seems so much more ideal.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Can't Copy Local Custom Material To Library

Jan 16, 2013

When I implemented Inventor Pro 2013 I added all our custom materials to the Inventor Material Library.  This library is not local but on a shared network drive that everyone in my company can access.You can clearly see that it is not locked and is write enabled.  I dragged the local material to the library and I shows up in the library.  When I close and exit Inventor and re-open, it is no longer available.

You can clearly see by my screen capture that the new material was added to the library.  Why isn't is updating the library?

I have managed our Inventor styles and libraries for Inventor since 2003 (R5) and I never had as much problems getting my mind to wrap around this new appearances change that Autodesk has made.  I have wasted 4 hours this morning trying to add a simple custom material to my library and I cannot.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Custom Library Created By Material Guide Auto Drop Table

Nov 20, 2011

I have created the Custom library of ISO bolts by adding the Material to existing ISO library using the Material Guide.
The goal is to make bolts black and anodized to be more specific with purchase orders from very beginning.
After the adding the material everything is working good except the auto drop. There is a wide Table pop ups with a lot of unnecessary info.
Is it possible to choose the columns to represent there? I mean leave just Material or Part Number ?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Storing And Retrieving Features From A Library

Mar 18, 2013

I need to create and maintain a library of hole features of varying shapes and sizes (there will only be around 10 variations).  The goal is to be able to programmatically retrieve a feature and then place it in the current part.  Ideally I would like to be able to assign each an ID to each feature that I can use to programmatically retrieve it. 

My first thought on how to achieve this is to have one master part file that contains all of the features.  When I need one I can open that file and somehow copy the appropriate feature and then place it in the target file. 

Or maybe it would be better to save each feature in its own part file? I'm not so much looking for code as much as general guidance on whether either of these approaches sound reasonable.  Maybe there is a better way to programmatically store and retrieve features from a library?

AutoCAD Inventor :: VBA Code To Toggle Custom Button Image?

Jun 5, 2013

I have created some custom button in VBA. I wish I can make those buttons toggling their image.

For example my custom button toggles Part/Component priority or Highligt on/off and I would like the button image will change showing the current state.

The background image color change will work too, or the some extra tiny mark on working sceen would be useful if it quite complicated to deal with ribbons.

Generally I need to see the current state at glance.

Revit :: Custom Material Transforms Show In Viewport But Not In Render?

Nov 30, 2011

I am trying to throw a screen shot up onto a TV model to make my rendering more fun and I can't get it to work right!!!
I duplicated one of the standard plastic materials in Revit's lib and replaced the color with a cutom image (first tried jpg then png). I had to tweak the transforms to get it to fit the screen. Looks great in the camera view but when I render the transforms are off.
Here are some images to illustrate the issue.

Revit :: 2014 - Custom Family Type Material Editing

Jan 5, 2014

I am trying to take a custom counter I created as a family and have it show a material in my project.  It seems that no matter how I apply the material parameter to the family type object, type or instanced, the material does not change in the project when I apply any new material.  I have opened up other countertops I have used from the Revit Default Casework Family and I can't seem to find a difference in the setup between mine and Revit.  I wanted to use an instanced parameter so I can change the material per room where the object is used.

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic - Set Custom Property In Custom Content Center Part

When using Inventor with Vault, we have a problem when categorizing custom content center parts in Vault. In short, custom content center parts are incorrectly categorized as "Content Center" and automatically released - as there is no property that we can use to identify these files.

I need iLogic code to trigger when custom content center files are created/saved, wich adds the following custom iproperty "IsCustomContentCenter=True".
