Is there any way to create a rule to create a substitute on my weldment files?


what I need is something like:


If this document file type is weldment then create shrinkwrap substitute, go to the file (substitute) read the custom iproperty "area" and write to this document custom iproperty "area for sand-blasting" activate LOD Master then delete substitute LOD.


The propose is for purchase department to know the area of the assembly (only the area of visible surfaces)


Sorry for the bad English I'm Portuguese


Best regards,

You need to involve Inventor API functionality to create substitutes in iLogic rules.

There is a sample in Inventor API Help "Shrink wrap substitute in assembly”.
