I'm using rules to control a part that I made. This part is available in steel and wood.
But steel = normal and wood is something we have to buy.
I would like to adjust my rule so that my material choice will effect the "Default BOM Structure"
I just can't find the right "code" to start with.
I would like to do this on part level.
At first I thought these new "Joints" were terrific since they were easy to use and took less steps than constraining parts together. Until I tried to Showcase them as Behaviors. So I tried Inventor Studio. Nothing. Can anyone from Autodesk explain to me the purpose of Joints if you can't make Behaviors out of them? It seems like a great tool but is very useless if you can't drive them anywhere but in the Assembly environment.
Is there any way to animate these Joints?
I'm using Inventor 2010 Pro. I started a new sketch on an existing part. However all my sketch tools are greyed out. In all my years of using this seat, this new glitch only resently appeared. Is there a fix?
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.
Does anybody know how to to this and teach me?
I have a question.
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.
I'm looking forward to your answer.

I have a trouble with sections angled assemblies, which appeared from either version of the software. Well I do not remember, but it seems to me that before the 2009 versions that were not. The problem explains the attached drawing. It shows the angular sections of simple assembly. In my opinion, the program shows them inappropriately. At the top (the blue frame) I took the expected appearance of the cross-sections after the manual correction. However, if the parts have more complex shapes, and so often in my real case, the correction will take a lot of time or be impossible to carry.
There are some other, simpler solution to the imperfections. Any idea?
I have some Inventor 2011 files that need to be saved as IGES files. I currently work in 2012, so I can't open the 2011 files.
Hopefully someone can save my files for me.
And if there are other ways to accomplish this task please let me know.
I have a drawing detailing an assembly with a 3 sub- assemblies. Each sub-assembly has 4 parts. When I add a parts list only the 3 sub-assemblies are listed. Is there a way to generate a parts list with 12 parts?
I'd like to create a customized appearances library for multiple colors (and transparencies).
Currently from what I gathered, I can do it by creating each appearance on its own. Is it possible to create a script that will create these appearances into the appearances library file?
If not, can I create them in XML perhaps and then import them?
Any help will be much appreciated!
I hope someone here has a solution for me. I am trying to install inventor professional onto a pc with windows 8.1 32-bit. I am getting the crash that is supposed to be fixed by a patch. I downloaded the patch and it gives me an error saying the program is not there. I have tried both the 32-bit and the 64-bit file just for kicks but both say the same thing. My inventor folder is located at... C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor 2012 Is this the wrong spot or something, i really don't know why the patches are not installing.
Thanks in advance for any possible solutions!
Happy New Years to All,
I'm trying to find the intersecting points of a part that connects to the outside surface of a cylinder shaped part.
What is the best way to go about this? I have attached some images that hopefully illustrate my problem.
Is there a way to invoke the iLogic Rule Editor and pass it an existing rule name or external rule for editing?
I have a question regarding dynamic simulation.
Is there any reference that explains the details of the dynamical models, equations of motion etc?
For example, what about the dynamical model of link mechanism?
I am trying to link excel file to drawing file (idw), but couldn't succeed. Is it possible? if yes please share your knowledge
Looking for your help
I need a rod with a section at one end threaded. The rod Dia is to be controlled via excel input and is also affected by user input in a popup window. However every time the rod Dia changes I get an inappropriate thread size warning. So in an attempt to counter it I did the following.
Created my rod with thread feature and suppresed the rod feature
add this rule with an event trigger of parameter changes
Feature.IsActive("Thread3") = False
If lowrod_dia = 12 Then Feature.ThreadDesignation("Thread3") = "M12x1.75" ElseIf lowrod_dia = 16 Then Feature.ThreadDesignation("Thread3") = "M16x2"
after that it seems to work but im thinking there should be a less bodged solution. Anyone got any ideas?
I have created master assembly that has rules to 'saveas' the assembly and parts to different locations and with different names. This master assy has links to excel file to get different names
In the same way I am looking the drawings (for both assy and parts) needs to be created and 'saveas' to different locations. These newly generated drawings should have links to newly created parts/assembly.
I am able to 'saveas' the master drawings to different locations but these newly created drawings still has links to master assembly/parts.
Customization tools develop in AutoCAD 2014 can be used in Inventor 2014. Kindly clarify my doubts.
Thanks and Regards
i don't recall this happening in the past or if this is a bug but i found a challenge while detailing today, as below:
it became apparent that my main drawing view was a bit skewed, so naturally i adjusted the view orientation via: 'edit view' > 'change view orientation'
i actually had a 'break' applied to that view from much earlier on, and did not notice right away that some aspects of this break, & the ability to edit or delete this break was no longer possible after i had adjusted the view orientation.
i tested this on a different view & the same thing happens repeatedly.
if, while detailing you are aware of this issue, & you notice at the time, then you can undo the orientation edit and then delete the break before adjusting the view. ie sorted easily, however if it goes unnoticed then sadly it seems like the view needs to be deleted and done again from scratch.
note - the ability to change the view orientaion at a later time is no longer available after falling into this trap. also no further breaks can be assigned to the view after this occurs. it seems like the view is "locked" somehow to help inventor manage this situation.
also interesting to note is that any dimensions that span the original 'break' still reflect the correct length, but the dimensions do not show a joggle as usually seen when spanning a break. same applies to new dimensions that are applied to the view, and span the gap.
it would be nice if there was a warning like "inventor will delete any view breaks prior to changing the view orientation" or something like this to help minimise the chances of falling into this kind of trap.
anyone else seen this?

Where do i download the missing files please
Hi Inventor Technicians
Is there a way to identify what sketch or Solid a reference parameter (d0, d1, d2 etc) is in / on.
