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.
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.
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.
a rather simple question.
can i deactivate the tooltips/quickinfo of the factory library.
It tends to block the libraries contents from view.
It would be nice if there was an option to turn them off.
Thanks in advance
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.
Problem: Asset Chain Graphics is only a polyline when first created and requries a round trip for update. The polyline graphics are not effective or desirebale by the user and therefore may not be used.
Idea: Have a update graphics button (right click on Asset?) that would roundtrip the polyline to generate the planview graphics.
A common problem existis for all assets with regards to elevation.
When a assets is placed at a elevation other than 0 - (On the floor), the 2D Assets is placed at a elevation. When modified in AutoCAD, the elevation is often changed, impacting the 3D Asset elevation.
This would be helpful for Overhead Conveyor Layout especially. Anything
This would be a problem fixer.
This would also make asset authoring easier.
This could be implemented in a simiilar fashion as in the asset authoring field for landing plane offset.
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.
If one uses Factory Assets and Connectors to configure a new piece of equipment on a Factory Layout, it would be handy to publish this new equipment configuration as its own Factory Asset, from the Factory Layout environment. This is similar to the idea of "Creating Assets using Assets". Hope all is well and have a blessed day!
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.
There are times when I want to find the asset of the same definition as the Object I am currently selecting.
If Asset broweser show the same asset automatically. I can know what asset is this very easy.
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!
I like the idea to do pictures from a machine in a factory who exist and send it to 123D Catch and use the mesh model in Inventor (Using Mesh-Enabler) to create a legacy object as an asset.
I never tried the 123D Catch with larger objects as one meter. Also I have errors when I download the mesh. But this will be a great workflow to catch legacy objects in a factory.
Regards to all the others who like this.
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).
When Creating Assets, often I have to repeatedly republish the asset. It would be nice to have a Republish workflow that could do the following with one button:
- publish to same folder
- publish with the same asset name (to overwrite)
- Set 2D View Options.
Also, if the asset has already been published, these setting should be remembered.
When publishing FDS Assets, the dwg blocks created are set to allow explode in AutoCAD. Why not set them to NO so that the bi-directional work flow is not broken so easily by poor Acad practice. An experienced user can reset this function if needed in the block editor.
