Understand that everytime you make a change to the iassembly factory, no matter how big or small,
all of the iassembly member need to be regenerated. This will update the drawing views associated.
... except when it doesn't.
About half of the iParts and iAssemblies I've got will flat out refuse to update the drawing in anything like a consistent manner.
1. Open drawing, receive message that factory members are out of date and need to be regenerated.
2. Open factory, global update, rebuild all, then regenerate factory members.
3. Go back to drawing, everything seems fine.
4. Change sheets of drawing, or insert a new view, or edit an existing view ... receive message that factory members are out of date and need to be regenerated.
Lather, rinse, repeat.
Glad to hear that i am not the only one with these exact same issues. That is why my best solutions to date have been:
A; delete drawing view and replace it. or
B; never use a factory so I don't have this problem.
And I was almost becoming an Inventor beliver and putting aside my SW brain washing.
Well I guess I could get out a pad and pencil, but that is even more work....I think.
We had the same problem up-reving a drawing of an iFactory part.
We couldn't get the new revision to show.
Fix was to open the iFactory PART in question and Manage, Rebuild All, then Generate the new files as previously mentioned. The new revision would then show in the drawing field.
Hope this helps.
