Utilizing the custom Vault Property “SUB TYPE”, we will automate the process of creating a DXF file when the Sheet Metal Model is transitioned to a “Released” Lifecycle state.
Customize the text formatting of Autodesk Inventor's exported parameters.
Deleting unused properties is usually a straightforward process of first checking the Usage Count. If the property is used by 1 or more files you will not be able to remove the property.
A new feature in Inventor 2022 that needs to be shared is the “Reset UI”.
How to prepare for and use the IMAGINiT Vault Metadata Update Utility to Import new data or update existing data.
Let’s face it, there are some repetitive tasks with Inventor and Vault that are tedious, time consuming and potentially error prone when they are performed frequently back to back.
The Inventor Task Scheduler is intended to perform automated tasks and acts as a batch processor in Inventor and other applications.
The Text editor in Inventor allows us to insert the iProperties from different sources. With this technique, your annotations will update in the drawing if the information in the model files change.
When creating advanced or complex Inventor sketch profiles, it is sometimes helpful to change the display properties of the sketch geometry.
Inventor does provide a solution for this from the Document Setting where we can configure the drawing to use the iProperties of the model.
Out of the box Inventor provides workflows that allow us to populate iProperties by using the iProperty editor for individual files or through the BOM editor for multiple files.
