AutoCAD Inventor :: Proxy Of Workplane Inside Pattern / Inside Part / Inside An Assembly

Oct 14, 2013

There are many examples of creating rectangular patterns, but not many, if any, of interrogating existing patterns.I have attached the files and a screenshot of a rectangular part inside an assembly. The part contains a rectangular pattern of holes and do I get hold of each proxy of the workplane in the pattern?In other words I don't know what to put in the for loop at the end of this code fragment:
If _invApp.Documents.Count = 0 Then MsgBox("Need to open an the assembly document") ReturnEnd If If _invApp.ActiveDocument.DocumentType <> DocumentTypeEnum.kAssemblyDocumentObject Then MsgBox("Need to have an Assembly document active") ReturnEnd If Dim asmDoc As Assembly Document asmDoc = _invApp.ActiveDocument Dim asmDef As AssemblyComponentDefinition asmDef = asmDoc.ComponentDefinition im occurrences As ComponentOccurrencesoccurrences.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Return Button When Working In Assembly

Apr 22, 2013

I sometimes create parts while working in an assembly. This hasn't been an issue but something mysterious happened. Once I create my new part, to get back to the assembly ( turn off the transparency)

I typically press the Return button which is normally in the first tab (this example shows I created a sheet metal part)but for some reason the return button is now in the inspect Tab??I tried looking through the customize ribbon form and can't seem to put the button back into the first tab?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Opening Part In Assembly Not Working

Jun 27, 2013

if this is a setting that needs changed or is a bug of some sort but when i am in an assembly and double click on a sub assembly it highlights that sub assembly and greys out the rest of the model as expected, however if i then right click on a part and bring up the menu and click open it does nothing. It seems as though when i right click, the menu opens and it deselects the part so when i select open it does nothing as no part is selected. I can click on the item in the tree and select open.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Associating A Workplane With A Block

Dec 3, 2012

I want to use a lofted solid as a component in an assembly. I am using a top-down approach with 2D blocks to get the kinematics right before creating the components.

My problem is that the sketches needed to create the loft are on workplanes, and those workplanes are fixe with respect to an absolute coordinte system.

Is there a way to assosiate workplanes with a block instead, so that they will move with the part?

Is it possible that the problem is trying to do this in a part file, and that if I place the finished solid in an assembly it will then be able to move? ( I am fairly new to Inventor.)

AutoCAD Inventor :: Moving A Fixed Workplane?

Jan 6, 2014

I created a sketch on a 'fixed workplane' and extruded it. I would like to know if it is possible to move the workplane? I understand I can change the workplane if it is a 'plane by offset from plane'.

If moving a fixed workplane is possible, does the extruded features move along together?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Create Workplane From Selected Face?

Nov 14, 2012

I am working on a project were I need to select a face and create a workplane out of such face, see the figure attach. my language of choice is C#. 

Here is what I think it should be done, my proble is that the oWork (the workplane I just created remains null) and the whole project crashes.
private Inventor.Application mApp = null;.....if (((mApp.ActiveDocument != null))){
if ((mApp.ActiveDocument.DocumentType == DocumentTypeEnum.kPartDocumentObject)){
PartComponentDefinition oPartCom = mApp.ActiveDocument as PartComponentDefinition;
PartDocument oDoc = mApp.ActiveDocument as PartDocument;if ((oDoc.SelectSet[1]) is Face){
System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("You just selected a surface", "Surface Evaluator");Face oFace = oDoc.SelectSet[1] as Face;
WorkPlane oWorkpl = oFace as WorkPlane;
PlanarSketch oSketch = oDoc.ComponentDefinition.Sketches.Add(oWorkpl, false);

AutoCAD Inventor :: Keep Drawing View Aligned To Workplane?

Jul 31, 2012

I have some models which are based on skeleton modeling and where the actual parts are modeled at the position where they are in the assembly. When the skeleton part is changed the parts will update and their orientation related to the origin planes can change. This is where the problem lies, on the drawings of these parts the views are all skewed after an update.

Is it somehow possible to tell Inventor that all views on a a drawing should stay alligned to a workplane? Because it are all parts and no assemblies I cannot use posreps (and I don't want to use dummy assemblies). I also tried setting a specific edge to be horizontal with the rotate command in the drawing. This works for the base view, but all projected views will still be skewed after an update.

AutoCAD Inventor :: IPT File - Get Suppress Status Of Workplane

Jul 29, 2013

I have a ipt file in my assembly and try to makes some constraints. Everything ios working well, but there are some suppressed workplanes, and I don't want to use them for a automatically created constraint. Is there a way to find out the workplane suppress status?

Why are they suppressed? They are defined on a part feature (extrusion surface). And when I supress that feature, also the Workplane is suppressed.

But I only can get the visible status. Maybe there's a way to get it about the part feature, but therefore, I have to search for the part feature, and that's also a problem. I cannot get the part feature, who is used for the workplane definition (I think, it's a problem of my knowledge )

Please see attached a small view on the browser where you can see the suppressed Planes.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Create WorkPlane By Point And Line

Apr 5, 2013

I am trying to create a workplane by a point and a line.  I can do this maually, but have not been able to reproduce this in code.

BTW: I realize I can create a fixed workplane by using the point, the edge, and an edge perpendicular to the edge, but I cannot have this as a fixed workplane.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Best Way To Create A Workplane At Angle On Tube Surface?

Aug 1, 2013

What is the best way to create a workplane at a given angle on the surface of the tube. Imagine the workplane long and thin running along the surface of the tube. The angle will be a parameter (from a sketch or user).

I'd like the workplane to always be on the surface of the tube, even when the diameter of the tube (from a dimension in a sketch) changes.I'm thinking that a (angled) line in the same sketch as the two circles (which define the tube diameter and thickness) would be a good starting point.

I want to be able to have All Work Planes set as 'Invisible' but create a or Icon that allows me to change the Visibility of any individual workplane(s) physically selected in the browser.

A rule written by another member should do the trick if the following line could be altered so as not to read 'For Each' oWorkPlane but instead for 'Each Selected' oWorkplane.

'For Each oWorkPlane In docFile.ComponentDefinition.WorkPlanes' 

'get user input
oInput = InputRadioBox("Select workplane visibility:", _

AutoCAD VB :: Layer Creation Code Not Working In 2013 VBA

May 10, 2012

I have been using a dialog box with checkboxes for creating layers for the past 5 years now with minimal problems.  I don't know much about VBA code, but when there is a problem, I can usually figure out what is going on, which is generally a typo the causes it to error.  The code was created by an employee that left the company about 3 months after I started.

After installing acad 2013 and the VBA enabler this code only partially works.  It will create the layer in the drawings, but will not set the color, linetype or the description.  When I click on the checkbox for any of the layer checkboxes I get a "Run-time error '13':  Type mismatch" error.  I click on the "Debug" button which opens VBA, the "This Drawing.Layers.Add" line in the below code is highlighted.

As a troubleshooting effort, I tried retyping the ".Color" line, when I had typed out "m_refg_pipe_n." a drop-down box appears, but "Color" is not an option anymore.  The only color option in the list is TrueColor, which we do not use.  In the next line of the below code, "Description" is an option.  So I am guessing that the ".Color" line of code is the problem.

Private Sub CheckBox101_Click()
Dim m_refg_pipe_n As AcadLayer
Set m_refg_pipe_n = ThisDrawing.Layers.Add("m-refg-pipe-n")
m_refg_pipe_n.Color = acGreen
m_refg_pipe_n.Linetype = "Hidden"
m_refg_pipe_n.Description = "MN - Refrigerant Piping"
End Sub
