I have a part published with 2d options to make a simple sketch to show.
The sketch need only consist of a rectangle.
If I place the asset in acad and sync to inventor i get the simple outline visible.
If I place the asset from Inventor and I sync with acad I get to see a detailed sketch.
How come I get two different sketches, while I publish i see a simple sketch?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I tried your asset. It worked well for me. I got the simple sketch in the dwg as expected. Can you send me your dwg file so we can take a look? My email is "yizhou.cao at autodesk.com".
"If I place the asset in acad and sync to inventor i get the simple outline visible."
The 2d asset(simple outline) you placed in ACAD is the one that you published to factory library,
"If I place the asset from Inventor and I sync with acad I get to see a detailed sketch."
Maybe, the asset that you have changed some parameters already in Inventor. And then Sync AutoCAD, so the outline is not the 2d asset from factory library, it is created on the fly by Inventor.
If you don't not change any parameter of asset in Inventor, I think you will also get the simple outline after Sync AutoCAD.
By the way, we have new functionality in FDS 2013, say Asset Variant. If you have series size of the asset, I recommend you can create the Asset Variant (iAsset) of the asset along skecth publishing. So when you place any size of asset, you will always get the simple outline.
Attached is the sample of the iAsset based on your asset.
If I place youre iAsset independent and I change an asset than all issued iAssets change.
Is it not the intention that youre iAsset change independently from each other like an ipart?
I place the asset with Insert Model and then i select the panel in the browser and change the parameters.
Hi again -
When you place with Insert Model, it doesn't create a separate copy of the component, and so parameter changes apply to all occurrences.
If you want it to behave like the other library assets, you need to publish it to the library, and then place it from there.
Jeff is right. We recommend that you should publish your assets to the Factory library and then place it from Asset browser.Expecially for iAsset, you can choose the member on the menu of the iAsset in the asset browser before you place it.
