Everytime i use the Park Shrinkage, it stretches it rather than shrinks it. I tried entering negative values and it wont work that way...

Oops, I hadn't thought about scaling down rather than up.

 

You could non-uniform Scale up and then with Derived Component scale down, but this would take some calculations.

 

I recommend - back to the add-in, rather than trying to use the plastic part method.

But the thing with the add-in is the fact that it wont install correctly on my system...

Show screen shot of your UAC setting.  (temporarily turn off your anti-virus too)

Show screen shot of your add-in manager.

Okay here's my UAC
Untitled.png

 

I reran the install file one more time (the .bat file) and...

Untitled2.png

 

It showed up now in the Add-Ins folder, and when I ran the program...

Untitled3.png

 

I get this error code. I have the latest, most up-to-date .NET framwork, so I don't know what the issue might be this time!

Turn UAC back on.

Reboot the computer.

 

Restart Inventor and try again to run the tool.

 

I can't read the error.

Click on that box to make sure it is the active focus.

Hit Alt Print Screen on the keyboard.

Open MS Paint and Ctrl V to paste the image of the error dialog.

Save and attach the file here.

Hi

 

Appoligies in advance if this has been answered, but I have not read the entire thread. I get the impression that the SDK does not want to install.

 

Following is an extract I wrote on my BLOG.

 

Hope this solves your problem

 

.............................................

Aaaargh !!!!

I have just re-installed my work computer, a two day affair I might add. I am not complaining, it was taking me long and longer to boot my computer, average time from Logon to being able to use the machine was 7 - 10 minutes. absolute madness.

Anyway the reason for the post, it too me forever to get the Inventor SDK working, I thought I would put it here, because I struggled to find support on the web.

Note, The registry info has been extracted from the Autodesk Forums.

1 - DISABLE ANTIVURUS
2 - Perform the following registry change:

RUN Regedit.exe
Drill down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk
Right click on the folder and click PERMISSIONS...
Click the Advanced Button
Click the Owner Tab
Click the Change owner to: Administrators (your workstations name) and
Check mark the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects.
Click Apply
Click the Permissions Tab and double check that the Administrators have Full Control for This key and subkeys.
Click OK , Click OK , Close Regedit
Restart the computer.


3 - Install the "User Tools" SDK
(C:\Users\Public\Documents\Autodesk\Inventor \SDK)

Select the "Just Me" option
Run everything as "Administrator"

4 - run the "RegisterDrawingTools.exe"
..................................................................

Please Give Kudo's / accept as a solution if it solves your problem.
