Re: Inventor ONLINE help is now live on Autodesk Knowledge Network (AKN)

Jeanie:

That link is for help files to be installed with inventor, they are not a stand alone help. I am giving up searching for help here. Wish wikihelp had been allowed to stand until a replacement was ready. That was a big mistake.

One thing online help does not cover: Is there a way to mirror an I-part in the part factory environment? I have posted this and no one has touched it in the last year.

Hello do you know of a way to mirror an I-part in the part factory table. I have searched and tried and sure would be nice. When a left hand part is required in a model there is not an easy way to accomplish this task I have recently found that if I derive in the parent factory part rather than the child component I can get better results. I set the parent part to desired configuration and update and suppress link in the mirror part. This works well but to create an I-Factory assembly it is not feasible as I cannot use table replace. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

The reason I have posted here is because obviously I cant get a response to my issue in the discussion group or wiki help. Thanks

I have just installed Inventor 2014 across 11 workstations using a deployment. When I click the 'Help' button, a web browser opens with:

The Help for this Autodesk product is now online and is being continuously updated. To access the online help you must be connected to the internet.

To access the Inventor 2014 Help when you are offline, you must download the Inventor 2014 local help. To download, access the internet and download from here:http://autodesk.com/inventor-2014-help-download

 

What do I do to access the online 'help'

Welcome to the forum,

Not sure what your part looks like, but there is no directway to create an Inventor part (.ipt) from an Autocad drawing (.dwg)

You can copy and past the drawing sketches into an Inventor sketch to protrude or revolve, but that is about it.

 

FYI, it would be better next time to start your own thread instead of piggy backing an existing one. :smileyhappy:

You can translate the data directly, if the dwg contains a solid model. However, I've never had much success with it. If you are talking about 3D data then your best bet is to export it to a sat file and import that. If it's 2D data, then Scott is right. Your best bet is to recreate the part in Inventor from scratch. Can you give us anymore information about your problem?
