AutoCAD Inventor :: Updating Parts (IPT Files) After Modifying It On Assembly Drawing?

Nov 25, 2011

I don't understand why my parts aren't updating when I put a hole through them on the assembly drawing? I would expect the part (.ipt file) to get updated with a hole through it when I save the assembly drawing, however it doesn't. Do I have to change a default setting or does inventor no do this?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Updating Parts From Assembly File

Feb 27, 2013

When I create a assembly , no problem , If I modify any parts in the assembly , the mods do not translate to the part file Inventor asks if I want to save the changes but nothing happens , everything is in the correct project folder , I have tried everything I can think of .

I have looked at several posts and comes up with a add on called "Feature Migrator" but Inventor must be able to it by itself?

AutoCAD .NET :: Updating Drawing / Database After Modifying It

Jun 30, 2012

I have written a command that replaces the given annotative scale of all objects in a drawing, with another annotative scale. Works great, except I can't remove the replaced annotative scale (with SCALELISTEDIT - DELETE button), unless I save the drawing and then open it again.

An annotative scale that is in use, can't be deleted. But since I can delete it after reopening the drawing, I am sure it is not in use anymore.

Is there a way to "refresh" the drawing/database, without reopening it?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Drawing Not Updating To Assembly Changes

Mar 4, 2011

I have a drawing of an assembly with approx. 15 parts.  I dimensioned and notated everything on the drawing as I usually would, and everything seemed fine.  I have now gone back to that assembly a while later to adjust the position of some of the parts.  When I open the drawing, however, these changes do not show up in the drawing environment.  All of the parts are still in their original positions, even though in the assembly they are in new locations.

I've checked and it seems that the drawing views are referencing the correct assembly model.  I tried deleting and replacing the dimensions, but that does not change dimension value to be correct.  I also checked to make sure the "Defer update" box in the Options window is not selected.

If I place a new base view of the same assembly in the same drawing, it shows up with the new locations, but the original base view will not update.

I really would prefer not to delete the entire drawing and start over.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Custom IProperties Not Updating In Drawing When Update Assembly Model?

Nov 19, 2012

I'm using Inventor 2011 and when I go to change parameters using iLogic in an assembly model, (sometimes it is a component suppression, other times it is an iPart component change) it won't update the associated drawing file. I need to go into the BOM on the drawing and renumber the balloons, or change something else in order for the custom iProperties to update in the drawing template. If I just change the iPart component, then the BOM doesn't need to update making the renumbering of balloons redundant.

I'm using iLogic to update all of the iProperties and component references, then reattach balloons. What I would like to do is automatically update the custom iProperties drawing template fields, and renumber the drawing BOM.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Export Assembly Drawing To DWG With Parts As Blocks

Jul 8, 2012

I was wondering if there is a way to export or save an assembly drawing to .dwg format (that can be opened by cad or acad mechanical) in such a way that all the parts of the assembly are exported as individual blocks (within the same file) To explain- lets say I have a .i am out of which I create a drawing (.dwg for inventor). Then I export or save this as acad dwg. This acad dwg should have all parts of the assemblies as blocks so that if I want to work on a particular part in the 2d environment of acad, that is possible.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Create Dimension On Drawing Document Between Two Parts In Assembly

Feb 8, 2010

From a VB.Net program, I'm trying to create a dimension on a drawing document between two parts in an assembly. I can get the parts using component occurrence. The line marked below throws the following error: The parameter is incorrect. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070057 (E_INVALIDARG)).

As you may see, I have allocated memory for both "Edge" and "Face" (Dim oEdge1 As Face) albeit one is commented out. Attached is the screen shots from the attribute helper add-in. In it, you will notice that the attributes are of type: "Face".

Public Sub CreateDrawingDimension(ByVal Part1 As String, ByVal Part2 As String, ByVal AttName1 As String, ByVal AttName2 As String)
' Get the Active Drawing document
Dim oDrawDoc As Inventor.DrawingDocument
oDrawDoc = invApp.ActiveDocument

AutoCAD Inventor :: Printing Drawing Sheet Sets From Assembly BOM Parts List

Nov 27, 2012

I have created an assembly that has a parts list, and in this parts list I have up to 100 mono detail drawings. I would like to know if there is a way to print all of these drawing from that list in a massive plot.

At my previous company we had something like this in AutoCAD where a script was created to look at the drawings and print all drawings mentioned in the assembly BOM and subsequent sub-assemblies, it worked beautifully.

I find that I have to print all drawings to paper or PDF individually.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Hidden Lines Of Specific Parts In Assembly Drawing View

Oct 24, 2011

Is there a way of using Ilogic to make hidden lines of specific parts in an assembly drawing view visible? If a part with hidden lines showing is suppressed and then unsuppressed the hidden line option becomes unchecked, therefore I need a way of rechecking this option through code?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Assembly / Subassembly Files In Parts List

Feb 4, 2013

We have an issue regarding Parts Lists. We currently produce a 'master parts list drawing' for the jobs we produce. This drawing has 2 rolled up parts list on it -

1 - purchased parts - so buying can order all the required parts in one go.

2 - manufactured parts - so production know which and how many parts to make.

Both of these can be setup in Inventor (using filters) so they display only the correct parts from the BOM. However, neither of these show assembly / subassembly files (and consequently drawings). Is there any way of creating a parts list that can show assembly files only?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Get Parts List In Assembly Drawing To Fill Part Number Column?

Nov 19, 2011

I'm using Autodesk Inventor 2012 SP1 64 Bit on a Windows 7 machine without vault.

I seem to be missing something. I cannot get the parts list in assembly drawing to fill the part number column. See the image below.

The BOM has the part number field filled out as shown below. Is there someway that I need to map the iProperty to the part number column in parts list?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Create Drawing From Assembly Of IGES Files?

I've got some IGES files, which I want to place into an assembly, and then create a drawing of the assembly.  

If I open the IGES and place it in a drawing it works.  If I create an assembly, place the same part, and then try and put the assembly into the drawing it doesn't work.  

Attached is the IGES file.  I'm using Inventor 2011.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Place Assembly Constraints With Parameters From Parts In Assembly?

it is possible to make a constraint that utilized a parameter of a part within the assembly.

For example, if I wanted to use the thickness of a plate, which I defined in the part, could I call that parameter in a constraint?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Make Sub Assembly From Parts From Main Larger Assembly?

Oct 31, 2011

My assembly has grown (about 50 parts) to where I need to consolodate some parts into subassemblies for reuse and alternate iterations of the basic design.

When I import the original parts into a new assembly, all of the constrains I created are not there of course.

I've tried creating a new empty part and then deriving a new part from the assembly, but I can't add, delete or edit any parts.

I looked at using Shrinkwrap, Substitutes, iParts, Multi-body Parts, and Multiple Solids but I remain confused.

In retrospect, maybe I should have created the subassemblies between the part and assembly stage but I didn't.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Errors On Modifying Parts - Operation Doesn't Produce Significant Result / Redefine Inputs

Oct 2, 2012

I'm experiencing many problems when modifying parts measures, adding extruxions or doing holes/threads.

Always same error: Operation doesn't produce a significant result. Redefine inputs

If Inventor is totally closed and reopened, I can modify and update parts without problems for 10-30 minutes, until first error, then it gives errors until closing again. Usually, but not always, operation preview begins to fail before first error. So it's quite difficult to reproduce.

I've tried uninstalling everything after Autodesk installation, windows updates and Firefox plugins (well, even Firefox itself) included. I've tried all hotfixes and updates that Inventor 2013 gives (NO SP1), even I've fully reinstalled Inventor. I've been using Inventor from Inventor 7 and never seen such errors.

I've attached a part from the pictures. Anyway, as errors are not always happening, maybe you won't have any problem with it.

PD: Also, a little problem is that with this Inventor version I can use the CTR+c CTRL+v to copy parts into an assembly. I can use the context menu but no shortkeys.

AutoCAD Inventor :: CC Parts Saved As Custom Not Updating Thumbnails?

When inserting a Content Center part into an assembly as a custom part instead of as a standard one, then opening and modifying the part, the thumbnail for the new file is not updating to show the modifications.  In this particular instance: a pipe blind flange with an off-center hole drilled through the face.  The thumbnail still shows as the original (and fairly pixelated) CC blind flange. forcing the thumbnail to update?

AutoCAD Inventor :: IAssemblies - Assembly Hole Features Not Updating?

Dec 17, 2013

I have made an iAssembly with a main body and flanges attached to the body.

Assembly feature holes have been created act on the main body, and these holes are relative to the position of the flange.

When I change the factory member - the position of the flange changes, but the holes stay in the last location and so the model is wrong.

The only way to overcome this error, is if I go to the Manage tab and manually select 'Rebuild All'.

I need this to work automatically as drawings are generated wrong when changing model state. 

My intention is that this will be used in an iLogic routine, linked to an external sales package.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Geometry Not Updating After Replacing A Component In Assembly

Apr 29, 2013

I have geometry not updating after replacing a component in an assembly.

I have drawn part A and in the assembly environment I have projected cut edges on a XY Plane in a 2D Sketch.

After replacing component A in the assembly with part B (not identical but very close) i was expecting the projected geometry to update. But it doesn't. The "local update" button is greyed out in assembly mode. also the Rebuild command does not seem to update the projected geometry.

I can see the new 3d shape and the old projected geometry. How to get the projected geometry to update?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Multiple Components In Assembly - Derived Part Not Updating?

Assembly comprised of multiple components all derived from the same master sketch "4 Inch Rail Master Sketch" 

 Using the sketch to drive geometry, using the parameters to drive various extrude lengths.

Geometry changes seem to propogate quite well, while parameter changes do this a bug or am I doing something wrong?  Generally have to open each individual part and "edit derived part" to force changes to propgate...

AutoCAD Inventor :: Changing Instances In Parts After Updating Table Driven IFeature

Oct 2, 2012

I noticed some errors in certain table entries in an i Feature of mine after I had already started creating parts using it. I've updated the table and when I add new instances of the feature to my part they work fine, but the existing instances of it stay the same size. Is there any way to force the existing instances to update?

The i Feature in question is a sketch and I'm using Inventor 2012, if either of those is relevant.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Modify Part Without Updating Linked Parts / Assemblies / Drawings

Nov 12, 2012

I have several parts which I wish to modify, but, those modifications are only being done to get some prototypes made. I do not want the changed (non-approved part) to be used in current issue drawings, assemblies etc. until I have proven the modifications and am happy with them.

I can do this by doing a save as on the part and could just replace the previous design, but then I lose the history of changes/revisions shown in Vault which is critical to me and part of using vault in the first place.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Display Density Of Materials Assigned To Various Parts In Parts List On Drawing?

Dec 9, 2013

Is there a way to display the density of materials that are assigned to varius parts in the parts list on a drawing?  I don't need the mass of the parts I just need the material density to show up next to their respective parts.

For example, if I have a part with [steel mild] material assinged to it (no matter the size) I need a column in the BOM on the drawing to show: 490.684 lbs/ft^3.  "Worry when there's something to worry about."

When I edit the length and width in the part, the drawing updates automatically.

But is it possible to update the pdf file (of drawing) automatically after editing the dimensions in part?

 Or do I have to update (save as to pdf) everytime I create a new dimensions?
