Visual rule authoring

Status: New Idea
by Employee jan.liska on ‎02-04-2013 11:27 PM

It would be useful to have visual rule editor where user could create rules visually using drag & drop similar to Visio or Dynamo for Revit:

While using Intent for drawing creation, it would be very useful to be able to use a workpoint as an entity to attach a balloon/leader to.

#Region directive added to Intent language

Status: Accepted
by Mentor on ‎11-16-2012 12:31 PM

It would be very useful to have a #Region directive in the Intent language as there is in .net.

 

For those unfamiliar: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/sd032a17%28v=vs.71%29.aspx

 

Basically regions allow you to expand/collapse sections of code.  This makes organization much easier.

 

#Region "Child Rules"
    Child testCenters As :IvSphere, Quantity = Length(testParts)
        origin =  GetTestPartPoint(child.index)
        ignorePosition? = False
        Radius = 5
        color = "Green"
    End Child #End Region

#Region "Methods"
    Method GetTestPartPoint(mIndex As Integer) As Point
        Dim xyz As List = nth(mIndex, testParts).CenterOfMass
        Return Point(first(xyz), second(xyz), third(xyz))
    End Method
#End Region

Good idea.

Search in Properties Grid

Status: Accepted
by Mentor on ‎10-24-2012 08:57 AM

It would be useful to be able to search the properties grid.  I think it should be quick enough to just search as you type.  Also it would be good to have previous and next arrows to scroll through the results.

Property Grid Favorites

Status: Accepted
by Mentor ‎10-18-2012 02:15 PM - edited ‎10-18-2012 02:17 PM

I would like to see a "favorites" option in the property grid.  This would allow us to check the star next to the rule name and mark it as a favorite.  Then we would have a third sorting option to sort by favorites.  I suppose the favorite sorting option could apply to both the categorized sorting and A-Z sorting.

 

 

Thanks,

It would be very useful if we had a couple of dropdowns that included Children, Methods, and Rules as it is with .net.  In .net, it lists all of the methods in the active class.  This would be useful in the Design Editor as well as in Visual Studio when you are working with design files.

 

This would be especially useful on large designs where you may have lots of rules and/or children.  You should be able to click on an item (ex. "Length") and the window will jump to that rule.

Level of Detail Support in Assemblies

Status: New Idea
by Mentor on ‎11-19-2012 02:22 PM

It would be extremely useful to have Level of Detail support in assemblies.  It's very common for customers to use levels of detail in their drawings and without this built in one either has to code their own mechanism to create the levels of detail or set the hidden parts rule on the drawing views to hide the components that they don't want.  The hiddenParts approach is slow and leaves the customer with a drawing different than what they would create manually.

Workflow configurator

Status: Under Review
by kiruba on ‎10-18-2012 11:54 PM

Inventor ETO should have the capability to reverse engineer and configure from an existing iPart / iAssembly factory + incorporate rules from iLogic. There should also be an option to create configurations through a flowchart / flowdiagram rather than through code.

Sort IvPartsList

Status: New Idea
by Active Contributor Chris_Rogers on ‎02-14-2013 08:53 AM

It would be very useful to be able to sort the ivPartsList in Inventor ETO.  The user should be able to select a property to sort on and the direction of sortation.  

 

This functionality already exists in Inventor.

Fix the points

Status: New Idea
by Active Contributor alundr on ‎08-05-2013 06:23 AM

point(1,0,0) + (unitZ * 3) = point(1,0,3)

0 * 3 does not equal 3.  This is really confusing and really irritiating when you're trying to learn this software.  

Point(1,0,0) + (unitZ + 3) = Point(1,0,3) makes more sense.  My opinion anyway.

 

Thanks,

Andrew

Better Drawing Dimension control

Status: New Idea
by Active Contributor alundr on ‎07-22-2013 09:17 AM

A couple things

1.  Hide the generated dimension value

2.  Override the displayed value

3.  Change the precision of the primary unit

4.   Access to the tolerance methods

 

Thanks,

Andrew

Auto Indent

Status: New Idea
by Valued Contributor MattH_Work on ‎06-12-2013 02:18 AM

Can we get the Design Editor to automatically Indent our code, most (I say most as iLogic doesn't) other prgramming UI's do this already

Inventor ETO Project Editor

Status: Accepted
by Distinguished Contributor ludesroc on ‎10-18-2012 04:35 PM

Have an improve Project Editor. Let say DesignC is included in DesignB. If you include DesignB in DesignA then Design C is automatically included. Today I would need to inlude both DesignB and DesignC in DesginA. Maybe an option like (keep design hierarchy).

Got it. Thanks. "Good idea"
