I'm designing a part that in Autodesk Inventor 2013 that is constructed from several layers laminated together. I have 4 layers:
M1 (middle, variation one)
M2 (middle, variation two)
The final solid will lhave 17 layers laid out like this:
F | M1 | M2 | M1 | M2 | M1 | M2 ... | B
I currently have a part file containing
F | M1 | M2
What's the best way to create this solid if I want to a) keep all instances of M1 and M2 in sync, and b) make it easy to work on all 4 layers. Do I have to export F, M1, M2, and B as individual parts and import them into an assembly or can I keep them in one part file? I really like the ability to be able to work on all the solids at the same time because they're visually dependant on each other.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have an IPT part file with 3 solids right now; it contains F, M1, M2 mentioned above.
I need 8 x M1 and 7 x M2. Can you please elaborate?
You can have multi instances of the same solid. It would have be labeled different. It may be the same material but I doubt it can be the same item. This would then become an some form of assembly. I guess I miss understood what you were really trying to do.
