Customized 2D Views in Inventor Drawing

Status: Under Review
by Advocate mk92 on ‎03-08-2016 04:15 AM

It would be nice if we could use customized 2D Views in Inventor drawings so we dont need to place every midlane by hand or make sketches in the Inventor drawing if a conveyor is rising or falling.

All,

 

I would like the ability to label a parameter as key, but hide it from the view of the users.  That way it could be passed along via Connectors, but not accidentally edited by users.  For example, there may be some parameters that I set in the starter asset that gets passed along to each of the following assets.  These could either be explicit choices or values that are driven by a formula.  Regardless, I want that value to be passed along and consistent.

 

Unfortunately for a connector class file to be applied, it requires that passable parameters are set as Key, which will then display them in the Factory Properties dialog box in the layout.  This is what I would like to be avoided for some of the asset parameters, because the users may end up changing them...

 

Hopefully, this is clear, but if anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  Hope all is well and have a most blessed day!

We need more properties added to the assets

We must have the possibility to add more production information's to the assets. Then we can use them for simulation and optimization. Also this assets need to be used in the early stage of the process.

Workflow - define your stations include. all relevant properties - place them in your factory - do simulation/optimization - check locations of stations against the factory building - do optimization again.

 

Today the Process simulation has only icons - so no idea what it will be. If this process is final - you start again in ACA with the optimization (and you type in all the properties again).

BOM Reference BUT normal in Drawing

Hello,

in many cases it would be helful to have the opportunity to mark a Part/Assets as a reference but keep it normal in the drawing. Therefore it would be great to have another Version of "Reference"!

 

- Not in the BOM

- Normal in Drawing (also the coloured view)

When working on a Factory Layout it is to bad that the parameters can be changed trough the 'Factory Properties' only. You can't change the names of parameters, you can't change the order in which they appear, and the parameter names must have under scores. The nice Forms which can be made are not available in the Factory Layout.

 

My idea is to combine the functionality of the 'Factory Properties' and the Forms, and erase either one of them afterwards. This way Autodesk can reach a great improvement of both the user interface, intuitivity en simpleness of the program. It would anyhow bring the design and the use of assets closer to eachother, in my opinion.

 

Feel free to ask or share toughts.

It would be nice if we could customize the properties/parameters which are exported by this function.

Unite the UCS's

Why does the FDS layout have a different UCS than standard Inventor files? It makes for some frustrating moments when inserting non-asset part files. It's not that it causes problems, its just annoying!
