Thanks a lot it was really an informative article, however, I wend through SDK folder and when I install Derive Scale Positon Addin, nothing will add on my IV, even in Addins list nothing shows up , I had it before I upgrade to IV2013 and it was easy and powerful, but I cannot get it to install anymore and I'm wondering why.
Thanks anyways for all the support
I forgot to mention that the reason that article doesnt work for me at the moment is, I'm dealing with Derived Sketch reorientation/positioning/scale , not a solid body and thats exactly what derived part scale/position was capable of.
Please see if this discussion thread has anything useful:
I believe that you need to have at least the.NET platform 2.0 installed.
I assume that you know about SDK which needs to be installed using UserTools.msi typically found under C:\Users\Public\Documents\Autodesk\Inventor 2012\SDK\.
Make sure that the old addin is uninstalled first. I am not sure if cleaning the registry (for entries referring to derivedpart_sp) is necessary.
Sorry, I cannot be of much help here. Good luck!
Perhaps this post is quite relevant -- apparently there is a GUID collision with another addin in Inventor 2013. Try to install the addin which Rocky Zhang has posted there. Thanks.
