michael.navara was kind enough to share this link to another tool on the Exchange site that can be used to create QR codes:
I hope this helps.

I've been doing some digging on the format (well, as much as not spending ~ $250 on the ISO standard will allow). The procedure in creating a QR code is just a *little* more complicated than switching to a bar code font:
Structure of QR Code? I found this passage called QR Code introduction has the structure of QR Code. I can help you understand. QR Code is now really getting more and more popular. I am also creating QR Code in my business.
fgarcia90 I created an Addin to place a QR-code image on a drawing. It's posible to copy iProperties from the drawing or from the Base-model to a sketch symbol containing the QR bitmap. Sadly the qr-code is not dynamic, when you want to make changes to the qr-code you need to create a new one. But it's posible to save the text to a custom iProperty for later use.
Hope it works for you, otherwise let me know.
Tested on Inventor 2012 x64 an 2013 x64.
Guys, just solved the question migrating to Inventor 2014 and using the app X-Tools LT...
as Curtis pointed and seem's a nice solution.
Just one thing I think it couldf be very usefull, ist that the text/link could be place in the prompted entry.... any ideias...
Thanks all for your suggestions..
"Anybody have references for the structure of QR codes? Once the creation process is better understood the automation of that process would be easier to implement."
You can take a look at this QR Code introduction.
VB.net is a slightly different language than VBA (The program-enviroment in Inventor). And it's not completly compatible. Is VBA still integrated within Inventor 2014? I heard they will stop vba.
I can change my Addin so it can read the prompted value. But why don't use the iProperties?
