Copy Design - Make it more graphical

Status: Comments Requested
by *Expert Elite* on ‎12-04-2012 06:51 AM

When doing a copy design on a large project, it is very difficult to know what parts need to be copied.  You either have to be very familiar with the project or first go into inventor and manually create a list of parts that need to be in the copy design.

I would like to be able to choose the parts that need to be copied from a graphics window first (where I can see the parts in the context of the assembly), then have a chance to name them.  I know that we get a preview of the part in the copy design (well sometimes) dialog, but that is not always enough to tell the difference in the parts.

GREAT IDEA.

 

the "list" i generate to do this kind of task has consisted of my taking screenshots from inventor and highlighting the appropriate parts, subparts, sub assy's etc to use this as a guide for larger copy / design jobs.

 

this idea would be a nice simple and efficient timesaver.

 

the list can be saved for future reference if need be.
