Slot creation

Status: Implemented

I'd like to be able to create slots based upon hole table information that is already present.  The ability to create center point slots without using iFeatures would save me considerable time.

This idea has been implemented within Autodesk Inventor 2014. Enhancements were made to the sketching environment to accomidate the automatic creation of five different types of sketch slots. Please be sure to check it out. Thanks!

can you do it  like SW using the sketch tool for slots it does it by the users drawing a line or a curve with two points then the user drags the cursor away from the line or curve and tool generates the slot.

Marvelous. I can now create and/or array a number of slots in a sketch, then use Extrude Cut to make the slots in my part.

I just can't use the Hole and Thread Annotation feature to call them out in my drawings.

Don't get me wrong; this is a step in the right direction. 

Next release, perhaps it can become a hole feature so we can capture properties like quantities of identical slots in a given part, as we can with the regular hole feature.  :smileyfrustrated:
