I am trying to publish an ipart with different pipe profile diameters to T&P.
The problem I have is, I want for each profile in the ipart table have corresponding custom iproperty value assigned to it.
When the ipart is published and I use it in an assembly:
I want to pick lets say 2" diameter of added profile, have T&P create the part and then I want my custom iproperty for this part to be 001.
If I pick 3" diameter I want the custom iproperty be 002.
Played around with authoring and publishing but so far no luck.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I tried to describe it as straight forward as possible.
Our part template has a custom iproperty added, lets say its "MANUFACTURER".
Every part we create has this iproperty - when we create parts lists, one of the columns in the parts lists is "MANUFACTURER".
Now, I create an ipart with lets say different PVC pipe profiles: 2", 2 1/2" and 3".
2" pipe is purchased from a manufacturer A.
2 1/2" from B,
3" from C.
I can add this info to my ipart creating custom column ("MANUFACTURER") in my ipart table.
When i publish the ipart to T&P, and then create a pipe using added info, I get 3 options to choose from, 2", 2 1/2", 3".
When I create a pipe using 2" profile, and I open this part, I want it to have an iproperty "MANUFACTURER". I also want this iproperty to have a value of A.
When i pick an option of 2 1/2" and open created part I want it to have "MANUFACTURER" iproperty to have a value of B.
And so on...
I can transfer this value when I create an ipart with one option in the table but not with more than one...
Probably I should be able to accomplish this with a simple ilogic code (which I will experiment with) but I hoped for a simple solution within "traditional" Inventor...
I am surprised it can't be done.
Lol, you sound very optimistic about sky being the limit for Inventor .
I will check it out on Monday.
Before I added new column to the ipart table, entered different value for each ipart option in the table, the problem is to export these values when publishing the part to T&P and have different iproperty value appear when you populate a particular option of the ipart.
Re the publishing - I think you have to make the new column a "Key" by right-clicking the column name. When publishing, it then prompts you to include "key" columns.
Went thru your post again and this is excacly what I did last time.
Maybe I am doing soemthing wrong but when i use published profile, create new part with it, it does not have custom iproperties, eventhou they were in the ipart table.
Maybe it has something to do with attached pop up message...
