AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic Trigger In Drawing

Sep 18, 2013

I have a few assemblies setup that are controlled with a bunch of iLogic rules to modify all related parts when parameters are changed at the assembly level.  I also have an opening message that pops up when the assembly model is opened (After Open Document trigger) to tell people how to use the parameters to make modifications.

Now, when this assembly model is placed into a drawing I am getting random pop ups of the opening message when placing views of additional models in the same drawing.  If you open the drawing and try to place a base view of another model, Inventor stops to think for a minute or so before having the opening message of the iLogic controlled model pop up.  The only event trigger for this message is "After Open Document" and the model is not being opened; why it is being triggered in the drawing and/or how to make it stop?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Trigger ILogic Rules Using API?

Mar 29, 2011

I am currently using a application to control inventor using the API code.The API code is used to delete/suppress unwanted occurances from parts and sub-assemblies, depending on what is selected in the external application. It then puts all the parts and sub-assemblies together into a final assembly.

Most of the parts contain iLogic rules, to control dimensions, and these have been set to trigger when the part file is opened.I have noticed that in my final assemblies some of the parts don't appear as they should, however if i close the final assembly and open the individual part it appears to be correct. If i then open the final assembly it looks fine.

I think this might be due to the iLogic rule being triggered when the part is opened.Is there any way to trigger the rules using the API code while the final assembly is open, instead of closing it down and opening all the component parts and sub-assemblies?Or should we set the rules to trigger on a parameter change?

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic Form Trigger

Nov 29, 2012

I have a ipt which is controlled via an ilogic form,this form is opened by ilogic code, which in turn is triggered when the ipt is opened.

my problem is when the part is placed within an assembly the said form is triggered and the same happens when the assembly is reopened!.... I would prefer if the form opened only when the ipt is opened or edited.... 

Is there a snippet of code for this? Or is it even possible?

AutoCAD Inventor :: New Event Trigger For ILogic

Dec 8, 2011

Is there any chance to define an event trigger which runs an iLogic rule when we check out an already open file? Problem is, that we need to synchronize iProperties on check out to clear "Approved by" when Vault State of Part is "under revision"

Vault Parameter "State" is mapped with iProperty "State".

So I want to run the following on check out:

Call ThisApplication.CommandManager.ControlDefinitions.Item("VaultPropertyWriteBack").Execute2(True)

AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Trigger An ILogic Rule

Jun 26, 2012

I have an iPart which includes iLogic Rule. When I change iPart by table, iLogic Rules are not triggered.

In iLogic Utilities, there is a button "Rules Triggered by Events", If I use "Any Model Parameter Change", the update need long time, looks like Inventor is "No Response". I like the way "Material Change", but I need "part Number" change to trigger the rules. How can I do it? I tried other events as After Open, Before Save, etc, they are does not work.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Trigger Custom Add-Ins Button Through ILogic

Feb 14, 2012

I'm trying to find a way to trigger an "Add-Ins" button that we have customized, and have it pop up on the closing of a form. If you know a way to program how to close a form through iLogic, or find a way to see if it's still open

I'm not sure that I actually want to access the button per say, but instead launch the dialog box. I'm not sure if this differs your answer in any way, but I searched the customization forum and found little information.

AutoCAD Inventor :: API - Set An Event Trigger For An Ilogic Rule In A Document

Nov 3, 2011

Is there a way to set the event trigger of an ilogic file that's already inside of a document? I have code that can automatically create and populate new rules across my assembly parts, but it would be nice to set certain rules to fire every time that part gets saved. 

If it can't be accomplished outright from the API, would it be possible to throw an OnEvent (save event in this case) inside of the iLogic code, to get the same results? URL...

How to get the API to add an iLogic Event Trigger but I cannot find the exact code on how to do it.

Is there a Simple way to add an Ilogic Rule (External or Internal) to an event trigger with a VBA Macro or iLogic Rule?

I would like to automate adding an iLogic rule to an Event Trigger when we update our old drawings.

The details of the Rule I am trying to call is as follows:

Rule Name = Save On Close Commands

Event = Before Close

We currently have Inventor 2013 and 2014.  If it is not possible in 2013, is it possible in 2014?

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic Save Drawing As DWG

Apr 24, 2012

Is there a way in an inventor drawing rule to do a "save as" which saves the drawing as an Inventor dwg file rather than an AutoCAD dwg file?

The below saves as AutoCAD which is ok but I need the outputted drawing to be linked to the model. I don't want the code to save the entire assembly as this is done further down the line. I also don't want to save the current inventor dwg drawing from which the rule is run as this is just a template drawing.
ThisDoc.Document.SaveAs(ThisDoc.Path&"2D_DRAWINGS"&iProperties.Value("Custom", "Drawing No.")&" (Rev "&Parameter("BEAUFORT_ARRANGEMENT_3.iam.DRAWING_REVISION_NO")&")"&".DWG", True)

AutoCAD Inventor :: Drawing Sheet ILogic

Apr 19, 2013

have 2 questions

1.) If you look at the attached screenshot in the Edit Sheet form there is a sheet "Revision" input field is it possible to fill this out via iLogic?

2.) We have some custom E size sheets (height always 34in width varies 5ft, 6ft, and 8ft) when we select on of these sheet sizes that we created  it will display "Custom Size (inch)" when using the sheet property <sheet size> in the title block not the name of that we gave these sheets (Which creatively enough is "E-5ft", "E-6ft", and "E-8ft"). I thought I had this solved by doing this:

Dim oSheetSize As String
oSheetSize = ActiveSheet.Size
If oSheetSize = "Custom" Then
iProperties.Value("Custom", "SheetSize") = "E"
Else iProperties.Value("Custom", "SheetSize") = oSheetSize
End If

then change the titleblock sheet size field from sheet property <sheet size> to custom drawing properties <SheetSize> this all works great if there is only 1 sheet in the IDW where it fails is if there is more then one sheet.

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic Drawing Views Scale

Apr 18, 2013

I'm trying to put together some iLogic code to either check all the drawing views within a drawing sheet are all the same scale, or make the views all the same scale. These drawing sheets consist of a number of individual parts (they aren't projected views from a single part). 

This is for welded assemblies.  We are required to generate a profile drawing sheet outlining each part that makes up the assembly. We send these out as dwg files for laser cutting so its important that the views are all the same scale.

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic - Check-in Drawing Into Vault

Jan 8, 2014

I'm wondering if it is possible to check-in drawing into vault using i-logic?

If you check-in a drawing into our vault, it automaticly exports a .dwf to a storage server. We also have a simple button for making .pdf of the drawing to sent to the customer.

What i want to ensure is that the .dwf file and the .pdf file are the same. So when i press "make a .pdf" the rule will save my document, make a .pdf and (if possible) check it into vault. So from that point the .pdf for the client and the .dwf on the server are the same.

AutoCAD Inventor :: ILogic To Overide A Dimension On Drawing

May 17, 2012

So my problem is that  I need to include a line on a part drawing that isn't related to the part itself. I need to be able to override the dimension of the line I sketched so that I can include it in my drawing and update the dimension without having to change anything else on the part.

Basically, I want an iLogic rule to overide a dimension, and I don't know how to do that.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Change PL Header On Drawing Via ILogic

Apr 10, 2013

I want to be able to change the header on a PL in a drawing using iLogic.

I'm able to "find" the PL(s) on a drawing but can't seem to figure out how to access the header property My goal to to change the header to show the P/N of the assembly/part it's created from.

My Current code is below:


For Each oBOM In oBOMs
MessageBox.Show("Found a PL", "Title")
Next oBom

In between the for/next loop is where I want to access the current BOM and change it's header depending on the related .iam/.ipt.
