Will someone please tell me if I can do this, and how:
I want to import some of the iproperties of one ipt file into an iam file.
If that's possible, I forget how to do it.
See if this link helps you.
Thanks Scott, but that's not what I want to do.
I want to take the iProperties, such as the "Part Number", "Description", etc., and link it from an ipt to an iam, or an iam to an ipt, or whatever.
I already know how to use Parameters in other files.
It's the iProperties that I don't know how or can't recall if it's possible to do.
Any other ideas?
Incidentally, I'm running IV2010.
Hi! If I understand your request correctly, you want to "Derive" iProperties from doc A to doc B, right? Unfortunately, Derive does not support linking iProperties except Parameters (Custom iProperties). But, I think this can be done by using VBA code or iLogic.
I was going to suggest ilogic, but I see I got beaten to the punch.
I am not an ilogic guru so I can't help you to write it, but when it comes to things of this nature that is the path I have seen several go down.
Thanks for responding.
I'm on 2010, and don't have the iLogic module.
1. Do you know if iLogic is the same for the 2010 add-in, compared to when it became integrated into the program?
2. Do you know where I can pay a reasonable price for the iLogic module for 2010, w/o Autodesk forcing me to pay their "protection racket fee"?
Thanks ... Chris
There are a couple third party software companies out there that do exactly what you want. They are pretty cheap and you can try most of them for free for 15 days. Just search for “inventor property manager”. The one thing that inventor needs to add is a property manager. Every other cad software has some type of property manager.
If you end up getting iLogic I might be able help you with some code that will get you started.
Hope this helps.
I found iProWiz, but they don't suport 2010 Suite, only 2012/13.
Couldn't find anything else.
Any other ideas?
