I'm trying to get started with iLogic, but I have no coding background and no VBA experience in Inventor, so I'm looking for a good site or resource that explains iLogic and gives working examples, any help would be great
youve come to the right place
some of the guys on here are guns at ilogic
search for Curtis Waguespack...he has some good stuff linked to his threads
There are several free classes here http://au.autodesk.com
Since you're using Inventor 2010, I think you'll find the Autodesk supplied tutorials at this location:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Autodesk\Inventor iLogic 2010\Tutorials
These tutorials are probably the best way to become familiar with the basics of iLogic. Once you've done them you'll find the other resources easier to understand.
My suggestion is to start off simple working through the first 2 part based tutorials and then take some time to try to automate simple tasks with your own part files that you already know how to do in Inventor. For instance, change a part size, change a part color, set a part number, change a description, etc. Then go back and do the 3rd tutorial that deals with assemblies.
Many people come to iLogic looking to add functionality that they can't get out of the standard Inventor tools, and then dive right in trying to find answers to those questions. But I think you'll find it easier to learn if you focus on getting ilogic to automate task that you can already do with the standard tools at first, and then eventually you'll become familiar enough with the iLogic interface and tools, so that taking those next steps to do more advanced stuff will come naturally.
Keep in mind that many of the iLogic examples you might find online include Inventor API (Application Programming Interface) code in VB form, or a mix of iLogic code and VB code. There are subtle differences, but for the most part they work the same. Again staying focused on the basics of iLogic to begin with, will allow you to understand this difference more clearly once you get some experience with it.
I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
