2D assets

Status: New Idea

Here's My Idea:-


Why not have Inventor "variable" partameters exposed on to the 2D asset as a dynamic parameter within AutoCAD. example of which could be a conveyor with a length parameter, could this not be displayed just like a dynamic block when in the autocad environment??

I think i have figured out how Inventor is creating the 2d from the 3d (forgive me if i'm wrong!). It looks to me as if Inventor is creating a view on a drawing sheet to "project" the plan view of the block. although obviously done hidden in the background. In inventor after creating views you can extract the dimensions from the model to appear on the drawing, and editing the model dimensions within the drawing also updates the 3D. could this be a way of getting the dimensons into a dynamic block??
