Decal Command and iParts-iAssemblies

i have created an iPart with various mambers with different labels created with Decal command. (I use Inv2012, Win7)

(Each  member has Decal feature suppress or compute dependeng on his version).

Until now, fine.

Then i have created an Assembly and when i insert the iPart (with the labels version) no label appears..none of the iPart member show the label, works fine for other changes (measures, colors, properties, etc), but fail with Decal.

I can see the label only during the preview (befor fixing the part in the assembly, then it dissapear).

I have test it on notebooks, and workstation. No graphic card problem.

Is it a limit of the Decal feature?

Do i wrong somewhere?

Is it a bug issue?

Thanks for Support

You placed the decal on iPart factory, but when you placed it into your assembly, it was a ipart member derived from the  factory file. Since Inventor will ignore decal features when derive it, so you can't do it in that way.


You can use iLogic to get similar result, then choose place iLogic component in your assembly.
