In our company, we use frame generator a lot. So we obviously have to use a reference file to make our frames
(unless they're another way that I don`t know)
Our problem is when we have to do our presentation. To make our views the way we wants, we ask the draftsmen to break the associative link of the
representation between the model and they're drawings.
Where doing it this way because those who are drafting and those who are modeling are two different teams.
But sometimes while an update is done on a model, the reference files pops up in our presentation with no reason apparent.
Why our reference file is shown visible after an update, when it was previously shown invisible?
And is they're a way to make it stop, and if not, is a there a way to facilitate those updates so that we don`t have to redo pretty much everything?
Its slows our draftsmen greatly, sometimes they have to redo entire views because of those updates.
Sorry for my bad english
Hoping for a quick response
Solved! Go to Solution.
Tank you Very much
You're Suggestion seem sound. Ill try right away your advice.
But There is one thing that I worry about, if I began to suppress my reference file.
Will inventor panic and send-me error with missing link?
I use a fair bit of frame generator, but I do all the modelling and drafting here...
I use view reps a lot for things similar to this, my biggest tip is to lock them as soon as they are made. (before they get used in a drawing)
I found that when unlocked and you add a part in, even after setting the view back to how you want in the assembly environment the drawing views wouldn't properly update. (Needing a change then change back of the model view rep in the drawing view settings)
When the model views are locked the views in a drawing will still show up incorrectly at first (whern something has been added) but a simple 'update' will fix those issues.
Hope this helps.
I wasnt aware of that lock feature. Il try this right away!
