Hello everybody !
I am pretty sure there must be an easy way to solve my problem, but I can't seem to find a solution yet.
So I am using Inventor LT 2012 in a small company that makes conveyor rollers. Most of the time we make the same roller with only different values to the variables. So I decided to make a part with the parameters in an Excel sheet:
A customer call us, and they want a roller with x,y,z dimensions, I put in in Excel and the drawing is ready.
But, when I need to make a second drawing of that roller with different dimensions, the first one also change.
Is there any way to keep a drawing fix when it is done ? If possible, only making a dwg for each customer without having to make an ipt and excel sheet for each drawing would be awesome !
Hope I explain the problem clearly.
Thank you in advance for any idea.

You really need to copy the whole data set, lock stock and barrel.
I outlined some way to do this in this post:
Let me know if you find it helpful,
Thank you for your help Paul,
but as mentioned in the initial post, I am using the LT version of Inventor, so I make all my products in an ipt. file (they are fairly simple anyway)
