AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic Code Part Iproperties To Custom Iproperties

Sep 19, 2013

I was looking for some iLogic Code for Inventor 2013 that would cycle through all the parts in an assembly grabbing the quantity of each part and setting it equal to the custom property "Qty" of each part.

Having a little trouble creating the for each loop and setting reference to each part without referencing each part by specific name.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Adding Custom Iproperties With ILogic?

Nov 2, 2010

Is it possible to automatically add custom iproperties using iLogic?

I have a rule thats adds text to a propery, but when I run the rule in an old partfile i get the error:

"Can't find a property named DrawingNo"

Is there something like:

"Create iProperties.Value("Custom", "DrawingNo")"?

I have a form that is loading automatically in my part model. where i write the part number, description, project and custom titles.

my questions are:

1 - when i write the part number i would like then when i click apply it opens the save box with the same part number.
2 - it's possible to check-in the file during the saving and keeping the file checkout?
3 -  i would like that some of the properties would be transfer to the drawing, like the description and the project (this two are from the part properties.

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic Changes Custom IProperties Type From Number To Text

Nov 2, 2011

I am using ilogic in Inventor 2011 to update my iproperties when I save a .dwg file. I am having problems with some custom iProperties I have created that are of the type 'number' and are initially set to 0 (zero). After the iLogic rule has run and the user has entered a numeric value the type of the custom iproperty has changed to 'text'.

The ilogic code I am using is:

 If iProperties.Value("Custom", "Nominal ID") = 0 Then 
    iProperties.Value("Custom", "Nominal ID") = InputBox("Enter The Nominal ID (Enter 0 if no value is available)", "Nominal ID", 0)
    Custom_iProp_Nom_ID = iProperties.Value("Custom", "Nominal ID")
 End If

I am using Vault 2011 and would like to map this property to a numeric property so I can perform <= and >= searches.

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic To Create And Display / Insert Custom IProperties In Template

Aug 25, 2012

Any way to use iLogic to create custom iProperties from the cells in an Excel spreadsheet (both text and numbers) for a .dwg template. The only thing even close has been a user who already knew how to do it and was having a different problem. I am using Inventor 2012 and Excel 2003 and have very little experience with VB. I currently have a family of assemblies, consisting of two parts linked to an Excel spreadsheet to control the various parameters for each variation of the assembly.

I need creating an iLogic rule that will:

Go to a specific tab (I have four different tabs/worksheets) in an Excel spreadsheet.

Make a specfic row of that worksheet the current row based on the part number used to generate the models of the assembly shown in a .dwg.

Use the contents of a cell in that row (text or numeric or a combination of both) to generate a custom iProperty for the .dwg template.

Use the custom iProperties to fill in the title block of the template.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Export IProperties To TXT ILogic

Nov 11, 2013

I would like to copy and paste all iproperties from one part to another, without retyping it all.

What i was thinking about is:

1. Exporting all iproperties to .txt

2. Run a import .txt rule to iproperties.

Is it possible? If so, How could i accomplish a task such as this?

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic Set Description In IProperties

Oct 18, 2013

I am sure this is extremely simple to do but I am missing something. I am wanting to set the Description of a part in the Iproperties using values from the parameters. For instance, if the part has a length value of 10 and a width value of 5 I want the Description to say: 10 x 5 Floor Sheet

I cannot figure out how to extract the parameter values and place them into the iproperties. Here is what I have tried: iProperties.Value("Project", "Description")=" =<Length> x <Width> Floor Sheet"... This gives me the following result in my description:  x  Floor Sheet

AutoCAD Inventor :: Using ILogic To Fill Out IProperties

Jan 30, 2012

My goal is to use basic ilogic to fill in some of the standard iproperty fields from parameters.I have so far managed to populate the description iproperty with one value from the parameters using this ilogic code;

iProperties.Value("Project","Description") = length

where length is a user parameter.Want I would like to do is build on this to include more parameters such as material thickness, width and depth etc so the resulting iproperty description field would read something like

1.2mm SS 50x100 @3000

How do I go about writing the ilogic string to include multiple values and end up filling in the one description field?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Using Material IProperties In ILogic Forms?

Aug 3, 2011

I'm trying to build a simple ilogic form to fill out iproperty infomation for parts we generate.  Our company only uses a few of fields that are available.  The problem is that the Physical tab is not available in the form editor.  I would like to add this field to my form to be able to select the material for the part.  The style/standard editor in our part template file holds all materials we use.  Summary, Project, Status, and Custom are all available, why isn't Physical?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Populate IProperties From Excel Using ILogic

Jun 27, 2011

I am trying to use an iLogic rule to populate iProperties (some generic, some custom) from a part number spreadsheet (containing columns such as PART NUMBER, DESCRIPTION, FINISH etc) and the rule keeps throwing up the following error 'Conversion from string "" to type 'Double' is not valid.'

Here’s part of the code (would be extended for the required custom iproperties but I’m assuming the same principle is ok)
'read excel file
'index row 3 through 10000
For rowPN = 3 To 10000
'find first empty cell in PART NUMBER column (Column A)
 If (GoExcel.CellValue("A" & rowPN) = "") Then
Changing the format of the excel data (number or text) has no effect. Is manipulation of the format required so that Inventor can read text and numbers to iProperties in this way?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Using ILogic To Retrieve IProperties Form Model Into Drawing?

Jun 7, 2012

I'm trying to put a little iLogic rule in my drawing template which triggers as soon as the drawing is opened.  The rule asks the user whether the component he's making a drawing of needs to be painted or not.  If it gets painted, the paint area (one side only or both sides) needs to be calculated.  The result of this is then referenced by a text note in the title block.

I can do the radio boxes with the questions, as well as their If loops, but only when I'm in the model.  Due to our, admittedly inefficient workflow, we never have time to specify "minor details" like paint area or spec during modelling, only when we get to drawing level.  I'd like to put the iLogic rule inside the drawing template.  I'm having trouble referencing the iProperties of the model from within the drawing's iLogic interface.

What I have so far is this rule, which I can run inside the model:
'set dummy variable equal to total areatotal_area = iProperties.Area'start radio box with questionsText1 = InputRadioBox("Will this component be painted?", "Yes", "No", Text1, Title := iProperties.Value("Project", "Description"))If Text1 = True ThenText2 = InputRadioBox("How many sides will be painted?", "Both sides", "One side only", Text2, Title := iProperties.Value("Project", "Description"))If Text2 = True TheniProperties.Value("Custom", "Paint Area") = total_areaElseIf Text2 = False TheniProperties.Value("Custom", "Paint Area") = total_area/2End IfElseIf Text1 = False TheniProperties.Value("Custom", "Paint Area") = 0End If

adding a line or two so that I can run the same rule, but from the drawing.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Change IProperties For Virtual Part

Sep 26, 2013

How to add a virtual part from an excel list to assembly using plugin. I`d like to know how to change i Properties of the virtual part through

The iLogic code that I would typically use is:
Dim occs As ComponentOccurrencesoccs = asmDoc.ComponentDefinition.OccurrencesDim identity As Matrixidentity = ThisApplication.TransientGeometry.CreateMatrix
Dim virtOcc As ComponentOccurrenceIf v_qty >= 1 ThenvirtOcc = occs.AddVirtual(sVirtPart, identity) Try iProperties.Value(sVirtPart & ":1", "Project", "Description") = oProp1iProperties.Value(sVirtPart & ":1", "Summary", "Title") = oProp1 Catch End Try.......
so for the plugin I need to re-write this
Dim _invApp As Inventor.ApplicationDim occs As ComponentOccurrencesoccs = asmDoc.ComponentDefinition.Occurrences
Dim identity As Matrixidentity = _invApp.TransientGeometry.CreateMatrix Dim virtOcc As ComponentOccurrence If vp_qty >= 1 Then virtOcc = occs.AddVirtual(sVirtPart, identity) 'Try ' iProperties.Value(sVirtPart & ":1", "Project", "Description") = oProp1 ' iProperties.Value(sVirtPart & ":1", "Summary", "Title") = oProp1 'Catch 'catch error when oProp1 = nothing 'End Try

 How should I re-write the text in bold , so it works?

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Get Iproperties Of The Selected Part Or Sub-assembly

Jan 19, 2013

I'm using Visual Basic 2010 Express and Inventor 2013. I can get the properties such as PartName, Description information of the all sub parts using below

Dim invDocs As Documents
invDocs = inv_App.Documents    
Dim i As Integer
Dim invDocument As Document
For i = 1 To invDocs.Count

Above code works perfect. But I want to get or change i property values of the selected part or assembly in the biggest assembly. I got below information:

Dim selSet As SelectSet
selSet = asmDoc.SelectSet
Dim compOcc As ComponentOccurrence
Dim obj As Object
For Each obj In selSet
compOcc = obj
compOcc.Visible = False              

But I do not know how can I get the properties of the selected part or sub-asm . How can I walk from "compOcc" to "invDocument.PropertySets.Item("Design Tracking Properties").Item("Description") "

P.S. I will check the selected part quantity. It must be only ONE! Control Code below:

Dim asmDoc As AssemblyDocument
asmDoc = inv_App.ActiveDocument
If asmDoc.SelectSet.Count <> 1 Then
MsgBox("You need to select only one part or sub-asm to change properties...!")
End If
