AutoCAD Inventor :: Showing Parameters Of Drawing Template On Actual Drawing

Jul 26, 2013

I have created an iLogic panel which allows me to control my revision a lot easier and puts my entered data into the parameters of the sheet itself, is there a way to have this show up on the drawing itself for a template?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Copy Drawing Views To New Drawing Template

Sep 20, 2013

I've recently made a new drawing template with ilogic prompts for entering data for all fields within the template. It also sets view sizes etc.  I have lots of master drawings, which are reused when sizes etc change for a contract, which i would like to transfer to this new template. Drawing Resource Transfer Wizard does not offer this function.

I could get all drawings in a folder copied to specific sheet size on the master template.As the template will probably be developed further in the future I'm very loathed to do this take manually.

AutoCAD Inventor :: VBA Replace Title Block Definitions In Drawing From Template File

May 7, 2013

I have some code to replace the current title block with a title block from a template file. I just don't like how it adds a new title block definition named "copy of titleblock". I'd like to delete or replace the current title block definition so only the newly added one is listed.

 Sub test() Dim odrawdoc As DrawingDocument Set odrawdoc = ThisApplication.ActiveDocument If (odrawdoc.DocumentType <> kDrawingDocumentObject) Then Exit Sub Dim oTemplate As DrawingDocument Dim oSourceTitleBlockDef As TitleBlockDefinition Dim oNewTitleBlockDef As TitleBlockDefinition Dim oSheet As Sheet Set oTemplate = ThisApplication.Documents.Open(ThisApplication.FileOptions.TemplatesPath & "template.idw", False) Set oSourceTitleBlockDef = oTemplate.ActiveSheet.TitleBlock.Definition Set oNewTitleBlockDef = oSourceTitleBlockDef.CopyTo(odrawdoc) ' Iterate through the sheets. For Each oSheet In odrawdoc.Sheets oSheet.Activate oSheet.TitleBlock.Delete Call oSheet.AddTitleBlock(oNewTitleBlockDef) Next oTemplate.CloseEnd Sub

 I'm just being picky at this point, but I don't want a buildup of title block definitions. We reuse drawings all the time which is why a simple method of updating a title block would be nice. I can just imagine in some years time after a title block update or two there are 20 "copy of copy of copy of .................. titleblock" listed in a drawing file.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Placing Ipart In New Drawing

Jan 16, 2012

I am experiencing a crash when I try and place an ipart (any of them) into a new drawing. The open file box works but when the base view is placed in the drawing it has an unexpected problem and crashes.

Is this a documented problem , and a hotfix is forthcoming or is this just me and something local to my installation. Normally my install is very stable.

AutoCAD Inventor :: 2013 IPart / IAssembly In Drawing Causes Crash

May 15, 2013

I'm having an issue with Inventor crashing every time I attempt to follow this exact procedure:

1.  I have a drawing open with an iAssembly or iPart in it.

2.  I edit a view by double-clicking the view, opening the 'Drawing View' dialog box.

3.  I open the 'Model State' tab.

4.  In the 'iAssembly/iPart Member' menu box, I select a different member.

Now, it may or may not open the 'Save' dialog box.  If it does, then I click 'OK' and poof, Inventor crashes without fail, asking to send in a crash report.

The same thing happens if I start a brand new drawing and attempt to follow the same procedure while inserting a Base view.

Now, I know for a fact that the not all of the drivers are not up to date on my computer, I am not using a recommended graphics card, and I am using SP1.1, not SP2.  I have notified my IT guy about this, but he has yet to get back to me.  I don't now if/when everything on my computer will be updated.  I do not have admin rights to my computer.

In the mean time, Inventor has become essentially useless for me until this issue has been resolved.  how I can get these drawings to start working?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Update Table In Drawing - IPart Active Row

Feb 27, 2013

I have two tables on a drawing one showing a parts list the other changes to dimensions.

The table to show the dimension changes is a configuration table pointing to an ipart.

iLogic is used to update the ipart but you have to right click to update the Active Member in the ipart to see the drawing update.

Is there a way to automate the 'update active member'? (on the ipart table - this does update the drawing)

I just have the one row in the table, it's purpose was to pass the values onto the drawing (as the part resizes I didn't want the dimensions moving so opted to tabulate them) - hoping they would update!


Is there a way to have a table update parametrically i.e. I've tried .csv as a source to the table but can't force an update. This way I could scrap the ipart & just import the values to a table.

The table also includes some txt comments which change with the ipart properties.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Shift To Deselect - Settings Change Within Individual Drawing File

Jan 16, 2013

After reviewing many similar topics, I am still at a loss here.  We are finding that the settings for using shift to deselect items seem to be changing within individual drawing files. 

I open 2 drawing files.  In one, the shift/deselect works fine, but in the other is does not deselect anything...

Further - within the non-working drawing file, the option to activate 2 hotpoints on a line and then stretch that line no longer works either.

Like everyone dealing with these shift/select/deselect issues, we are wasting an extreme amount of time trying to resolve issues that never seemed to be issues with past versions.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Color Just One Individual Part On Drawing View?

Feb 7, 2012

I need to show a particular part in a drawing view so that it's clearly visible.  I mean, I can see it fine, but I would like it to pop out a bit more than it does and not blend in with other lines around it.  Is there anyway to do this?  I know you can make an entire view colored, but I just want one part colored within that view.

If not, then how do I remove the lighting from a particular view so that the parts will show as solid colors in a drawing view?  They currently show with like a white reflection or sheen and a sort of gradient coloring to them.

AutoCAD Inventor :: IPart Factory Table On Drawing Show Equation Not Value For Parameters

Oct 21, 2008

I have an iPart that I have created parameters to perform some basic calcs so the values will show up on every member. The parameters are correct for the different member so it appears to be working correctly on the model side. For example I have a parameter called 'CutLength' that performs simple math functions. But when I make the table on the drawing and I include this parameter, I see the formula in the table instead of the value. Is there a way I can have it display the value instead of the equation?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Drawing Template Objects

Jun 21, 2013

On my company's default drawing template, I have a text block on there with some drawing notes. We often edit some of the notes on the end at each drawing so I didn't create it on the "title block" layer, rather it's on the "top" layer. I also added (in the template) a revision table with Rev. A being "Released for Production" (because we are weird). How can I constrain those on the sheet so when I change sheet size, they stay in the same position relative to the corners of the sheet?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Drawing Template / IProperties

Apr 6, 2012

We are going to be using autodesk vault and it is my understanding that vault searches the iproperties defined in inventor documents. Is there a preferred way to set up the iproperties in the part, assy and drawing environments.

If I do a search in vault and the iproperty is only defined in the drawing, the main search results will only give me the drawing(s) and I will have to show dependencies to find the associated model or assy, right. If I define the iproperty in the part, model and drawing I will have to fill in the value of the iproperty possibly in three places. If filling in the value in three places is preferred is there an easier way to fill out the values.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Drawing Won't Save After Creation With Template

Feb 14, 2013

I'm trying to automate the drawing-creation in our company. Steps I've taken:

- create new drawingdocument with template
- Save new drawingdocument

Problem: Creation of new document works, but the next step, saving it to a specific location, fails. Error handler is initiated and displays error: Invalid procedure call or argument.


Dim DXF_DWG as DrawingDocument'Create new drawing based on templateSet DXF_DWG = ThisApplication.Documents.Add(DocumentTypeEnum.kDrawingDocumentObject, ThisApplication.FileOptions.TemplatesPath & "Folded and Flatpattern DXF.dwg", True)
'Save new drawing to specific locationCall DXF_DWG.SaveAs("C:TempTest.dwg", False)
As told, the VB-code raises an error on the last command. What am I doing wrong? What are the correct steps in VBA to create a new drawing document based on a template and save the newly created drawing to a desired location?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Change Member IPart Member In Drawing View?

Jan 8, 2014

In Inventor 2013 it was easily to switch in a drawing view between different iPart members. Through Edit view => Tab Model State and then it was possible to switch between different iPart members. So it was easy to make a copy in the Vault from only the dwg (from a iPart member) and then change the iPart member. Now in Inventor 2014 it is not possible anymore.
