AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic - Toggle Visibility For Item In Assembly Pattern

Jan 30, 2013

I have a subassembly that has been patterned.

I need to toggle the visibility of a part in that subassembly in each pattern element.

How do I refer to the part?

I have declared an object for my pattern, and can toggle the suppression on any element.

But I need to get at an individual component inside the element. 

I've been trying something like this:

oPattern.OccurrencePatternElements.Item(X).Component.Visible("Valance Jig Frame - 1in:1") = False

AutoCAD Inventor :: Pattern Visibility With ILogic

Oct 11, 2011

I've noticed that one can turn off the visibility of an entire component pattern by manually right-clicking the pattern in the browser and unchecking "Visibility". However, when one tries to automate this process with the following code, only the first element of the pattern is made invisible.

Component.InventorComponent("Pattern1").Visible = False

Is there a better way to do this, or will I be forced to develop a "workaround" like first changing the number of elements to 1?

I've been desperately trying to find a way to "turn off" unneeded assembly components without iAssemblies or LOD's, but Inventor always finds a way to stop me. This workflow of turning off visibility and setting BOM status to "Reference" would work if only I can make patterns invisible, also.

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic Rule Surface Flat Pattern Area From Assembly File

Oct 16, 2013

I created an iLogic rule that allows in a sheet metal part to the informations Length, widht and area of a flat pattern. This rule run and the iproerties are created (see attachment file).

Now, I will run this rule from an assembly file to create automatically, in all sheet metal components, theses iproperties.

Is it possible ? what must I change in this rule ?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Using A Rule To Toggle Part Visibility

Jun 12, 2012

I have a simple Assembly for a Frame that I made with Frame Generator. I'd like to use a rule to toggle the visible of some of the framing members.

In the sub assembly (called Frame0001:1) I created a rule:

(I have a variable called LeftAngle, and the bar I want to toggle is called Bar1.)

If LeftAngle = 90 then
Component.Visible("Bar1") = False
Component.Visible("Bar1") = True
End If

I am sure this is VERY basic, but I can't get it to do anything. There is no error message - just nothing happens.

I know the rule is running though - it will change other parameters in response to the If Then statement.

AutoCAD Inventor :: 2 Step Visibility Toggle While Drafting

Sep 2, 2013

I am trying to draft an assembly - when i want to hide some components I go to the tree and right click on the part/assembly and select Visibility.

There is a square next to visibility on the right click menu (like a 'stop' button) and nothing changes when i select it.

When I right click on the tree a second time, a tick appears (like in modelling/assembly view) and when selected it disappears. 

I want to turn items off in one click -

AutoCAD Inventor :: Parts List Line Item Visibility?

Sep 13, 2012

Is there an application or document setting that will make the default state of a row in a linked excel file used in a parts list default to "off" (not visble)?

More specifically, make this apply to added rows.

We have finish schedules in excel that everyone links a parts list to whenerver they need to display a finish schedule on the idw. However, when we add rows (new finishes) to the the excel finish schedule, they get displayed on the idw parts list next time the idw updates wether they are needed or not. Our practice is to only show finishes that are used on the drawing - so frequently a large portion of the whole finish schedule needs to be set to "off" or invisible.

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic Assembly Has Double User Request At Inserting In Assembly

Sep 18, 2012

We have an iLogic assembly with to parts in it. Maybe to cylindrical parts. The iLogic rules should do the following.

1. Start a Rule after open document.

2. This Rule starts a Rule in the first cylindrical component.

3. This Rule ask the user for a diameter.

4. The assembly gives this new parameter value to the second component

5. Then the assembly calls another rule in the second component to change it with the new parameter

Everything is working fine when the following combinations are taking place:

1. I open up the assembly out of vault or from a local drive or an accessible server drive

2. I insert the assembly as sub assembly in another assembly from a local drive or an accessible server drive

It don't work with the following situation:

- I insert the assembly as sub assembly in another assembly out of vault

Then the user becomes the dialog "Choose a diameter" twice.

I don't know why, but I have the idea it has something to do with the functionality of inventor to insert a component more than once. If you insert a component in an assembly Inventor gives you the opportunity to add more than one occurence after each other. 

change that behaviour? Maybe a switch to change that inventor "add more than one occurence" behaviour.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Translate Assembly Component Using ILogic / Offset From Parent Assembly Origin

Nov 9, 2011

I want to be able to control the location/position of a component in an assembly. This is easy enough through the iProperties/Occurrence tab and then adjust the location of the X,Y, and Z offsets. Is this possible using iLogic? I have been unable to find a function to access via iLogic. Ultimately I am trying to translate a component about an axis not a pattern.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Column Referenced To Assembly Item Number

Nov 23, 2012

Is it possible to make the column 'REV' automatically equal to the 'Item' column in attached BOM view? I manually added the values 1 to 5 in the REV column for example.

Maybe with some ilogic rule? I don't know if it's possible and/or where to start.

When i place a mono-part-detail on a assembly drawing i want to be able to place a leader referenced to the REV value. When this is possible there is a link between assembly item number and the mono-part leader.

It seems to me that the path to my DLL is duplicated. It is present in the call to RegSrv32 as well as in the .AddIn file.

I may be missing something vital of course...

AutoCAD Inventor :: Creating Macro To Run From Assembly That Will Loop Through Each BOM Item

Sep 28, 2012

I'd like to create a macro that I can run from within an assembly that will loop through each BOM item and add the quantity req'd to a custom property within the component.  I'm very familiar with VBA from Office, but I'm new to it with respect to Inventor so I'm pretty fuzzy with object titles and options. 

Here's an outline of what I'd like to do:

Execute Macro from within Assembly file

For Each BOM Item to # of BOM Items

If Vendor = "Make" then
Set Component Custom Property "Qty_Reqd" = Total Qty from BOM

Next BOM Item

AutoCAD Inventor :: Tracking Assembly Item Number In Individual Part

Apr 25, 2012

I don't know how useful this will be but I was trying to figure out how to track what item number in an assembly any given part may be.  I was thinking that on an individual part drawing I may want to reference the item number that is used in an assembly's Bill of Material for that part.  I can't find where this may be stored for retrieval.  If I do this I would want it to be automated so that if the BoM were renumbered the part file and drawing would update to the new item number.

This may not be possible since any part may be used in any number of different assemblies with different locations in a Bill of Material.  Most of our assemblies use "one off" parts that are only used in that assembly so it may be possible in my particular situation to do this if there is a way to get at the BoM item number and connect it to the IPT file.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Part Visibility In Patterned Sub-Assembly?

Jan 6, 2012

I am patterning a sub-assembly which has a reference part that is not visible in the sub-assembly. I'm driving this sub-assembly with a quantity parameter and when addition instances are created, the hidden part turns visible. I can bring the sub-assembly in multiple times and the parts remains non-visible, however, once I pattern it, the part shows up in all instances except for the original.

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic To Turn Off Visibility Of Lines In Parts List

Aug 21, 2013

At my company when producing drawings for manufacture we require a sheet for any steel profiles to be cut!..We do this by selecting the assembly from base view,hitting model view tab, selecting presentation and choosing the relevant profile from the drop down!

Once the profile is placed, we highlight the view and hit the parts list tab which obviously creates a parts list, but for the whole assembly, we then have to edit the parts list by turning off the visibility of the lines of all the parts which are not relevant!! you can imagine this is quite a laborious task if you have 50 different profiles.

The reason for this is to show the qty, steel grade and part number to the suppliers. My question is, any code that will take the lines of the parts list that are not relevant to the selected view and turn the visibility of those lines off?

AutoCad :: How Multiple Lookup Toggle Created Without Any Visibility State

May 7, 2013


Since weld symbols are regularly used in my day to day work, i thought of making a dynamic block. I had zero knowledge of dynamic blocks at that time. I realized that its actually very difficult to make a type of dynamic block i wanted. So instead of breaking my head to create it, its better to downloaded it.

Attached is the drawing i found on a forum. Its extremely cool, that's exactly what i wanted. The multiple toggle is extremely useful. That's what i wanted but was unable to create.

How this multiple lookup toggle were created without any visibility state?
