Cut sheets from Inventor?

Hello,

 

First off let me say that this forum has been a wealth of information and very helpful. Thanks!

 

I work for a small furniture manufacturer. We make mostly metal furniture and use AutoCAD and Inventor to create the shop drawings.  My question is in regards to inventor(running 2012 right now).  Our assemblies typically contain only 10-20 components.  The parts list containing each component, with length and material, has been very helpful for our guys in the shop.  I was hoping to further this by getting them a "cut ticket" for each component of an assembly. Ideally, an isometric view of the part with some minor dimensioning on it would be great.  I have not been able to effectively get one of these together. I dont want to create an .idw for each component, that seems like overkill and a lot of work.  I noticed in the BOM the small image of the component, but have not figured out how to use these for that purpose.  Anyone have any insight for this? 

 

Thanks,

 

AJ
