When we insert a Revision Table to a drawing we have the option to update Revision Number property in the drawing. This property is updated whenever we add a Revision Row.
I want Inventor to update the Revision Number property in the model the same way.
If this is not possible, is there a way to automatically map the Revision Number property in the drawing to the Revision Number property in the model?
Solved! Go to Solution.
What if the drawing revision does not involve a geometry change in the part, do you still want to bump the revision in the part? Looks like a strange workflow to me but if you want to proceed with it, here is some iLogic code you can place in the drawing that changes the revision of the component found in the first view on the first sheet. Trigger the rule "Before save".
Dim odrawdoc As DrawingDocument odrawdoc = ThisApplication.ActiveDocument Dim odoc As Document Try odoc = ThisApplication.Documents.Open(odrawdoc.Sheets.Ite
m(1).DrawingViews.Item(1).ReferencedDocumentDescri ptor.FullDocumentName, False) odoc.PropertySets.Item("Summary Information").Item("Revision Number").Value = odrawdoc.PropertySets.Item("Summary Information").Item("Revision Number").Value Catch End Try
Thanks for the quick response.
When I added a rule in IV2011 iLogic Your code generated the following error:
" Error on Line 5 : Comma, ')', or a valid expression continuation expected. "
Unfortunately, I do not possess the knowledge to debug it.
Are you sure you copied and pasted the exact same code correctly? Especially this line:
odoc = ThisApplication.Documents.Open(odrawdoc.Sheets.Ite
It looks to me that one of the closing round brackets ")" might be missing in your copied text.
Can you check if you have "...False)" and not "...False" without bracket or something similar.
There seems to be a problem with pasting code directly from the iLogic rule editor to this forum. I recommend pasting to Notepad first, and then copying and pasting from Notepad to this forum.
Here's a simplified version of your rule. This will work in Inventor 2011 and later:
Dim odrawdoc As DrawingDocument odrawdoc = ThisDrawing.Document Dim odoc As Document Try odoc = ThisDrawing.ModelDocument odoc.PropertySets.Item("Summary Information").Item("Revision Number").Value = odrawdoc.PropertySets.Item("Summary Information").Item("Revision Number").Value Catch End Try
Mike / Bob,
The last code works perfectly (I transfered it through notepad just in case...)
This kind of straight forward right-to-the-point online support is something I can easyly get used to...
that's exactly what I was trying to develop!! the reason is quite simple:
the quickest way to up the revision for a component drawing is by adding a new revision line in the revision table, but when you have a BOM in assembly drawing it takes component MODEL revision, not DRAWING.. are there any other better solutions to the one in here?
code is neat and work great with 2011, thank you.
