Hi, I am working on a project where I need to export Inventor parts into .DXF format using ilogic. Is it possible to to convert ipt files directly into DXF without using drawing templates? I am new to ilogic and I couldn't find code within the program do to the job...or am I missing something?
If you can provide any code or suggestions would be highly appreciated.
First of all, using 2012, you can automatically export multiple parts as DWG using Task Scheduler. If DWG would be ok
Go to Task Scheduler // Tasks // Export.
If you really want to use DXF, I'm afraid you may have to create IDW, and then convert it as DXF. This looks more like API, but you should be able to use it in Ilogic. If you create a new ILogic Rule and go to custom Snippets, you will find one whichi is Export DXF to IDW, you just need to create the code to automate the drawing and view creation.
Assuming that you are talking about generating 2D DXF files from flat patterns of sheetmetal parts, you can use this code provided by Rob Cohee, in an iLogic rule:
I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
