Custom iProperties not updating in drawing when I update assembly model

270 Views, 2 Replies

I'm using Inventor 2011 and when I go to change parameters using iLogic in an assembly model, (sometimes it is a component suppression, other times it is an iPart component change) it won't update the associated drawing file. I need to go into the BOM on the drawing and renumber the balloons, or change something else in order for the custom iProperties to update in the drawing template. If I just change the iPart component, then the BOM doesn't need to update making the renumbering of balloons redundant.

 

I'm using iLogic to update all of the iProperties and component references, then reattach balloons. What I would like to do is automatically update the custom iProperties drawing template fields, and renumber the drawing BOM. Does anyone know how to do this?

So I've fixed the custom iproperties by just adding a small save

ilogicvb.updatewhendone=true

thisdoc.save

 

I'm still having trouble getting the BOM to update and renumber..

Have you tried doing a complete rebuild to see if that will spark the change?
