AutoCAD Inventor :: How To Create PDF-File Of Drawing And STEP Of Connected 3D-File

Apr 11, 2012

I have a script that makes PDF-file with suffix revision. Now I want to expand this script so it even makes a STEP-file of the 3d-file connected to the drawing. This would make all manufacture files in one button. That should be nice..

How will i manage with this since the active document is the drawing not the part. (see code below)

Set oDoc = ThisApplication.ActiveDocument
Call oDoc.SaveAs("C:UsersGoranWeDesktop est estfile.stp", True)

AutoCAD Inventor :: Converting Assembly To STEP File

Sep 12, 2012

I have to send one of my assemblies to a customer who has Solidworks I believe, so I thought I would just save the assembly as a step file, but when I try to do this it crashes my system probably due to the fact that I have quite a bit of embossing on one particular panel. Any other options?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Creating Step File Of Assembly

Mar 20, 2013

I am trying to create a step file of an assembly, the assembly consists of maybe 50-100 parts.  I am currently running Inventor 2009.   In a new part file, I derive the assembly to make it one solid entity.  Then I save that as a step file.  However when i open the step file, i have a bunch of extra "parts" in my model tree.  These parts seem to be where the bolts and threaded holes interfere or not all parts joined to the main solid model.  How can I eliminate this? 

Also on a side note, is there anyway to change the orientation of the WCS?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Color Of Imported Step File

Jun 18, 2012

When I import a step file, the color/texture of the step file has gone way off from expected.

Before, the same model used to be gray, now most models have got a green pcb texture, and there seems to be no way to correct it in the model/solid properties.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Reducing Step File Size

Apr 4, 2013

We were sent some step files of valves from a company - what would be the best practice to make this into (clean up) a useful part to be used in our assemblies. Interested in converting it into a useful part but reduced in size. (Compared to other valves we use - this is easily 10 times the size).

AutoCAD Inventor :: Export Large Assembly To Step File?

Nov 14, 2012

In my company we work with quite large assemblies, a small project im working on now, contains 527 documents with a total of 3088 occurrenses. Our customers often request STEP files which is a real pain for us to create.

Usually we have to start exporting the assembly at closing time and let the computer work over night, and the product is often a file in the 200mb range, which is too heavy to handle via e-mail, and also takes a lot of time to import to other CAD software.

Using the Task Scheduler is not an option since our file server isnt compatible and refuses to let go of files unless they are checked out manually.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Modified Appearances Library - Now It Crashes On STEP File Opening

Mar 1, 2013

We recently purged our part templates of unused materials and appearances because there were duplicates after our merge between our original 2012 library and 2013 library.  We deleted these duplicates but retained all materials that inventor uses by default, such as the "default" material.

Creating new files causes no problems, however when opening a .STEP file Inventor immedietly crashes and exits to the desktop.  We tried re-assigning the default templates that came with our install of 2013 and we can open STEP files just fine.

We tried uninstalling the latest update (Update 2 for SP1.1) but that did not change the problem.

We are using confirmed STEP files that have opened fine in the past and new STEP files that are freshly downloaded.  NOTE: the same crash occurs with .SAT and .IGES files as well, however we primarliy use STEP files.

This is occuring on two seperate machines, both running Windows 7 64-Bit with i7 processors and 16 Gigabites of RAM.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Insert STEP (STP) Part Into Existing Part File?

Sep 11, 2013

The simple question is… how can we insert a step (stp) part into an existing part file? 

The story behind the question is this:

Normally when we get a step file assembly from a customer, if the part has changed, we put our part into Old Versions and save their new step file as our ipt number and replace it in our assembly file.  With Vault, in order for us to maintain the history of the part files, we need to keep the original file so we can’t just delete it or replace it, so now we need to figure out how to get a step file into an ipt.  The Import command on the Manage tab (with 2013 at least?) does not allow import of stp files just yet.

The only other option I can think of is to put the original part into an assembly with the step file, create a copy of the step information in the part file and use it to recreate the new (step based) part.

Lightroom :: Error Message - File Is Already Connected To A Different Photo

Jan 3, 2012

I just switched from PC to MAC and have troubles using the PC catalogues, or better: associating the images.
I copied the catalogue as well as the images to the MAC harddisk. When I open the catalogue I see the images, but they cannot be found on the disk. So I search on the harddisk for the new path but after finding it I get an error message "Die Datei "xxx.CR2" ist mit einem anderen Foto im Katalog verbunden." In English something like "The file "xxx.CR2" is associated/connected with a different photo in the catalogue."

AutoCad :: DWG File Properties To Excel Or Access To Create Drawing List / Register

Jun 3, 2011

I am looking for a way to use the .dwg file properties of a drawing to generate an updateable drawing list/register. One that will update automatically as the file properties are updated. I have already created a title block that uses text fields to display custom properties of the file on my title block, such as the job no., drawing no. etc.

I have searched the web for answers, came across this site, joined and searched through it... There are a number of threads that 'sorta' deal with my needs but alway tend to digress more towards the "poster's" needs and away from mine. I noticed that they all talk about Lisp Routines and I have no knowledge of using them. Is that the only way to go or can I use another route? Another one was the Sheet Set Manager but I don't think that this is exactly what I am looking for...

3ds Max :: STEP Import / Huge File?

Mar 31, 2013

I have a STEP file which was made with SolidWorks that I need to get into Max.

The file contains a fair amount of duplicate objects, like 10 highly detailed motors that are used, etc. When I imported the file into Max, I begin experiencing momentary periods of time where max become unusable. I believe this is happening during my auto-saves. So I checked my Max file, it's over 250 MB.

I know the problem is all the duplicated geometry, so how can I tell max, "these two things are the same." Without going through the painstaking task of actually recreating instanced geometry?
