We frequently will create a new part and drawing based on an existing drawing to save time recreating views and re-dimensioning the entire drawing. This is done by using Design Assistant to copy the idw and ipt file to a new name.
The only problem we have experienced with this workflow is that the revision history for the old drawing is maintained in the new file, and there doesnt seem to be a way to reset it. This also causes us a problem if a drawing needs to be changed from numeric to letter indication of revision level.
Does anyone know of a way to reset the revision history so that a new table can be started from scratch?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Unless I'm misunderstanding, you'll want to delete the revision table and revision tags from the drawing, and then place a new revision block. That will let you choose the starting revision number, etc. again.
Also be aware that older versions of Inventor had limitations in this area, but I don't recall when the changes were made (Inventor 2009 maybe?).
I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
