AutoCAD Inventor :: Link Hole Feature In A Part In Assembly?

Feb 22, 2012

I am trying to link a hole feature in a part in an assembly with the number of a particular feature in another part within the assembly. I have a base plate part with a coutersunk hole feature that I want to pattern by linking it to the number of bosses in another part within the same assembly.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Sketch Gone When Editing Hole Feature In Assembly

Jan 6, 2012

I just want to notice the Autodesk guys that when editing a hole feature in an assembly, then the sketch is hidden so that is not possible to pick more centerpoints. I noticed this when working with a sheet metal part, I don't know if its the same with a regular part.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Link Part Feature In One Part To Another

Jun 21, 2012

Very new to inventor 2012 coming form solid edge way back in the day (1998 to 2008)  to autocad 2d. getting ready to move to the inventor and trying to figure out some things.  searched videos , training etc but not even sure what to call it.

My questions are:

1. I design stamping dies and I will want to build sections from a stock strip with the outside then adding hole, dowels etc.  what is the best work flow for this? It is kinda the middle between top down and bottom up. 

2. what is the best work flow for adding counter bore , dowel in the block and then having this tied to the mating block so if I move the location of the holes in the block then move as well?

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Create LOD With Hole Feature Suppress At Assembly Level

Sep 3, 2013

In order to reflect production process, I have to create holes on the bent pipe at assembly level after 2 bent pipes are welded to the straight pipe. Now when I suppress holes, it does not suppress only at LOD or view rep but throught the whole assembly.

Is it possible to suppress features such as hole using LOD or view rep, which are made at the assembly level? or I have to use another method? See below in highlighted.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Hole Feature In Solid Body Part File And Bolted Generator

Nov 21, 2011

If we require to create patterned holes thru a number of solids, this works great only requiring the one hole feature.

However, once an assembly is created with the parts, (these parts obviously have their own derived individual solids in them) when needing to place a bolted generated assembly to the patterned holes. It won't recognise the pattern.

So I've come to the conclusion that the bolted generator/drop place function really needs improvement for solid body modelling technique. (Mind you, the BG needs a complete rethink because its at about 50% complete).

What I can see needs to be added, is the functionality of the parts recognising the hole pattern. e.g. when using the make components function it gives an option to add a link to the hole feature.

My only other option at present is to create the holes within the assembly file and transfer the hole feature to each part file. This obviously loses the parametric functionality.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Put Hole Feature Into IPart Table

Mar 26, 2013

I have created an iPart which uses the Hole Feature (counterbore hole).  The hole is not threaded.  Is there a way to put the Hole Feature into the iPart table so when a user enters specific values, he/she could type in or select a bolt size and the counter bore hole feature will use the correct dimensions for said bolt size (ie.  I would like the counterbore holes for an M6 Socket Head Cap Screw.  So instead of typing in the counterbore hole diameter, depth, and bolt diameter, etc... it would automatically enter the default values.)  Or is this something that must use iLogic?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Suppression Of Hole Feature With VBA Instead Of ILogic

In ilogic it's easy to suppress features like holes, but I cannot combine iparts with Ilogic, so I try the same in VBA, but I don't know the way to do it

Is there some existing sample code like this ilogic one for VBA?:

if Dimension_A < 50 Then

Feature.IsActive("Hole1") = false

AutoCAD Inventor :: Thread Feature Not Displayed In Hole Table

Nov 29, 2012

Yesterday I tried to make a table-driven I-feature of a few drilling paterns.

I want to use this for drawing steel manifolds. The I-feature is used to insert standard drilling paterns, for example a patern to fit a standard flange.

The only problem is, for the thread I used the thread feature, otherwise it doesn't show up in the I-feature.

But when I make a drawing of a part were this I-feature is used, the specification of the thread doesn't show up when I create a hole table, because in the I-feature, the thread is a separate feature.

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Assemble Fasteners To All Holes Created In Single Hole Feature

Jan 18, 2012

I have a part with multiple holes created in a single hole feature (i.e. not patterned but made by selecting multiple sketch center points).  As desired, the holes all have the same size since they all fit the same fastener.  Is there a way to easily assemble fasteners to all the holes?  Currently, I am using insert for each fastener and this gets tedius if there are many holes.  Additinally, if the number of holes changes, a manual update is required.  I'm hoping there is something that works similar to associative patterns.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Add Offset Hole To OD Of A Part

Nov 17, 2011

What I have is a round part with a few features. I drew it in Inventor until I got stuck with the last feature, which happens to be a hole, on the OD of the part that is at an angle (don't care what angle so long as it doesn't intersect with the hole next to it).

I have screen shot? both the mechanical 2D version and my 'so far' Inventor version, how I can go about modeling this feature?

Btw, the hole this has to connect to is the one highlighted green in the bottom pic or the only one dimensioned in the top pic.

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 :: Insert Threads Into Hole At Assembly Level

Jan 11, 2013

I have an assembly that is made up of 3 unique parts ( 5 parts total). These parts and there features are to be laser cut, then assembled and welded along the outer perimeter in the small chamfer. I have designed the parts to have 5/16 holes, which will be later tapped to 3/8"-16 UNC after assembly.

Once these parts are assembled, I don't understand how I can change the holes to reflect this. Meaning I want the parts to be pre-drilled(laser cut) with 5/16 holes, but I want the assembly to then have 3/8-16UNC holes.

The hole command will not let me select the existing hole features in the assembly and add threads. What is the consequence of inserting a 'new' hole with 3/8-16UNC threads over the existing 5/16" holes in the assembly?

Is my workflow incorrect? should I have the parts modeled with the tapped holes and just make a note on the drawing to not tap these holes until assembly? how does that affect the laser cutting?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Create A Hole Table For A Part

I need to create a hole table for a part.  I would like the origin to be at the center of the part.  Problem is there is not a round hole at that location.  Attached is a similar part.  The one that I am doing is much larger and has many more holes... this is just an example.

How can I pick this as the origin of my hole table?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Creating Part That Also Contains A Hole Surrounding It

Jul 23, 2013

I am just starting with inventor and love the capabilities, which makes me think this is possible.  I am creating a cross dowel nut (also called a dowel nut) that looks like a barrel with a threaded hole on the side.  This nut is intended to be inserted into wood and connect with a screw.  Is it possible to create this cross dowel that also contains the hole surrounding it so when I insert the part into an assembly (a sheet of wood), the hole is created as well?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Simplified Part - Assembly Won't Merge Into One Seamless Part

Dec 11, 2013

I would like to simplify this assembly into one seamless part for FEM calculation:The assembly consists out of parts that, in reality, will be welded together. Due to their form, there is no way to place them exactly onto each other, therefore there are slight gaps between the parts:

Now when I try to merge the assembly into one part via "simplify" --> "create simplified part" and choose "single solid body with seams between planar faces merged", Inventor does not fill these gaps (even though it displays only one part in the bottom right corner of my window). Unfortunately, the remaining gaps brings "contact" problems in the FEM simulation.

how to close the gaps and really merge the assembly into one part?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Can Part Make Alterations To Other Part When Inserting In Assembly

Mar 29, 2012

I have a part that has protrusions. When i mate that part up to another part that second part needs to have cutouts/holes to receive those protrusions.

i mainly use it in sheetmetal parts. and use the rectangular protrusions on de contour to mate up with corresponding cutouts in the other sheet. this works with positioning and also makes for a nice weld spot/area.

But also for making holes to accommodate a mold pin used in custom punch dies. I want the intervening part to receive a corresponding (propperly tolleranced) hole automatically. Much like a bolted connection does.

same for parts like circlips. i want them to automatically generate the seat in the part it's mated to. Rather than using the axle generator.

Ofcourse one can place the parts and do an in assembly interpart projection and go from there, but i want the part to generate the (predifined) modification to the other part. It would save time and also reduces problems as the parts are moved about or even removed.
