Emboss File Name on Part

503 Views, 3 Replies

In a part, I create a sketch, add annotation Type in the file name. Then create an Emboss feature using this sketch.


How can I add the file name property to the text. I want the the emboss to update to new file name if I rename the file.

Hi CAD-One,


Mark Randa wrote some iLogic to do this (


I'm having some trouble getting his link to work, but I've attached an example file using his code, as well as a link to a video of it being set up:


In the example, you can change the part number iProperty and then save the file to run the ilogic rule. The attached file was created in Inventor 2010, in case some one with an older version is interested also.


Also, I'd look for this to be do-able "out of the box" in a future release of Inventor. :smileywink:


I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,

I was able to get this to work on an ipart that is vaulted. What isn't working for me is running the rule so the appropriate text is visible depending on which instance of the ipart is placed into an assembly. I would think that there should be some way to make the rule run when each of the ifactory parts are generated?
