First day programing VB.net API for inventor, So Yes this a Noob Question
I using code similar to add a new part to an instance of Inventor, and it works OK. The problem is it is using the Metric Template instead of Imperial Template. I have check and confirmed my application preferences and they reflect "inches". Inve is the Variable name for my Inventor.Application. Thank You in advance
Set Part = Inve.Documents.Add(kPartDocumentObject)
I have found a Solution by changing the code to:
Part = Inve.Documents.Add(kPartDocumentObject, "C:\Users\Public\Documents\Autodesk\Inventor 2013\Templates\Standard.ipt")
But is there cleaner way of doing it?
You can use the Application.FileManager.GetTemplateFile to get the default template.
