Point cloud insert (positioning)

Status: Implemented
by Employee on ‎10-17-2012 06:29 AM

Today, when inserting a point cloud, the placement is arbitrary - that is, is selects the point I picked in space.  That is NEVER where I want it.


I want:


- Allow me to snap the cloud to a point in my layout

-Allow me to send it to 0,0,0 if I wish (99% of the time this is what I would want)

Status: Implemented
The 0,0,0 is implemented. the snap to point would not work as the snap in point is based on 0,0,0 in the point cloud.

Default layer attribute for factory assets

Status: Implemented
by Board Manager on ‎11-02-2012 08:34 AM

Factory assets should have an attribute that allows the asset creator to specify what the default layer the asset should be assigned to when it is placed in a drawing. The benefit of this feature is time savings and repeatabiliyt of workflow.


This requirement was gathered at the customer roundtable in Milan, Oct 2012.

Status: Implemented
Layers supported in Inventor environment. The user can now set a layer, and any object placed will be on that layer. Users can also move objects to other layers.

Watching users struggle trying to find how to turn these panels on....  adding some toggle buttons to the bottom of the Inventor UI (similar to AutoCAD, see attached) would help tremendously.

IF I am not snapping to a DWG or to a grid - I ALWAYS want to move my asset immediately after placement.  I have to go and select reposition.  Why not just have the reposition triad be the placement triad?
