I'm looking for an elevation marker to add to an Inventor drawing, I need something similar to what is currently available in AutoCAD's design centre. Does anyone know if there is one available in Inventor 2013 ?
You could create your own sketched symbol. see this pdf
So Inventor does not have a library of symbols for use like in AutoCAD then ? Thanks for your PDF link, to me it seems like placing an elevation symbol (for example) into a drawing should take seconds without the need to spend unnecessary time creating the symbol myself ? ? It would be good to see Autodesk address this one for the next release.
You can insert acad drawings into a sketch. So you wouldn't even have to draw it. Just save what you want in autocad then import it into inventor.
Thanks yes, I still think the whole idea of a standard annotation and architectural symbols library being completely absent from Inventor needs addressing - a symbols library should be available as standard with the option to add to this with custom sketched symbols as you have suggested.
I see your point but inventor is a mechanical design tool, not architectural. Maybe the factory design package or revit it would have the symbols your looking for, just a guess.
