The user should be able to find where assets have been used - in what documents. Users should be able to update those assets and have the drawings reflect the changes. Teh benefit of the feature would be that it saves a significant amount of time searching for where an asset was used and manually replacing them.
This requirement was gathered at the customer roundtable in Milan, Oct 2012.
When you do a search or browse for assets, it would be nice to be able to download all the assets in a search or all the assets in a particular catagory. Perhaps a Download All option. Thanks.
The user can specify in Inventor or AutoCAD the order that an asset is placed in a project. Factory Asset attributes can be used to specify the phase and/or order a given asset is commissioned. This information can be interpreted by Navisworks for the 4D / timeliner process.
Allow us to include the green connector in iParts. this way we can use already created iPart factories / children for assets. We have occasion to use Factory design utilities with iParts factories which contain 100's of variations. I do not want to publish them as individual assets one at a time!
We must have the possibility to add more production information's to the assets. Then we can use them for simulation and optimization. Also this assets need to be used in the early stage of the process.
Workflow - define your stations include. all relevant properties - place them in your factory - do simulation/optimization - check locations of stations against the factory building - do optimization again.
Today the Process simulation has only icons - so no idea what it will be. If this process is final - you start again in ACA with the optimization (and you type in all the properties again).
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 an asset is placed on a factory floor, and is replace by other asset using component replace, nameoof the event in broeser window is got getting updated.
In browswrer window, component name is not getting replace in the new component occurence name and number.
Worth if this is fixed.
When I click Sync Inventor it locks up my ACAD while the sync is taking place. This prevents me from accessing other drawings that are currently open in other tabs (drawings that are not being synced). It would be nice to continue working on another drawing while the syncing is taking place without having to open another instance of ACAD.
Ability to edit the generated 2D blocks Factory to create dynamic blocks, adding capabilities (visibility, scale, stretch, matrix, etc..)
I've tried to edit blocks and generated 2D Factory, not recognized back then updated Inventor from AutoCAD Architecture.
We're finding customers already asking us this feature, which would give infinite possibilities 2D/3D workflow.
I want my lines in block to end up in the layer i choose in inventor, not only the block.I want to be able to separate layer for block and the lines inside block.
I always place block on layer 0 in Autocad and the lines inside block in the right layer for the best funktion.
i can´t quite place it yet but i would like to have the option to
have a mirrored object update as soon as the source for this
I´m doing shelves and until now i do a single lane and mirror it.
As soon as a value changes in the source object, i have to delete
the mirrorde one and do it aknew.
Would be a nifty little feature.
working with assets i encountered a problem.
When doin an array of Assets i noticed the fact
connectors do connect but fail to update when
the origiinating object of the array change.
I can bypass this by trying to move the object,
for it can´t be moved because it´s fixed but to
simply try to move it is enough to get Inventor
to update the asset to the object it´s connected
With very simple objects this is not necessary,
but with the objects i created this tends to happen.
Can this be fixed with an update? Seems like a
minor change to me.
Problem: Some 2D Assets require linetypes to properly represent the 2D views which are often standard.
1. Use the option for utilizing a sketch for AutoCAD Graphics.
2. In the Inventor Sketch environment, specify simple linetypes.
Currently when perfroming this work, the linetypes are ignored.
When we authorize an assembly asset we can manipulate only assembly parameters (Key Parameters Window).
I need to manipulate parts and subassembly parameters too.
Often when we create assembly using Top-Down process, we manage this assembly by skeleton or main multibody part, which consist all main parameters of an assembly. There are no ways by manipulate them from assembly parameters.
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?
