BURST attributes when exporting to DWG

180 Views, 4 Replies

Hello

Is there a way to burst all Inventor sketch-symbols and titleblocks into plain text upon exporting (from Inventor to Autocad DWG format) ?

iLogic, api, xml ?

 

Our biggest supplier still uses Autocad DWG format and needs to access theses attributes in plain text (scripting stuff). The only work-around, we have found is to re-open each exported files and burst these manually

--- extremely time consuming and not acceptable ---

 

Thanks for your help

Regards,

There's no equivalent to AutoCAD's explode command in Inventor that I know of. 

 

Sketched symbols are not like AutoCAD's blocks anyway.

Hi,

 

effectively, that's why I wanted to know if somebody had found a trick in order to call "burst" feature during conversion process.

 

Any ideas ?

Hi,

 

I do not either find any API to do this. The only way I can think of is to use AutoCAD API after you converted to DWG. You will even not need to explode it because AutoCAD API can check the content of the block reference.

Hi,

 

Ok

it could be a nice improvement to inlcude this function into DWG conversion feature of Inventor or allow autoCAD API calling through Inventor task scheduler.

If you can log that.

Aurélien
