Here's My Idea:-
Why not have Inventor "variable" partameters exposed on to the 2D asset as a dynamic parameter within AutoCAD. example of which could be a conveyor with a length parameter, could this not be displayed just like a dynamic block when in the autocad environment??
I am quite surprised that there is not a way to set up the factory assets to publish to a vault folder so that way the assets could be managed in vault.
What would be ideal would be if FDS could publish the assets to the library folder within Vault so assets could be shared across multiple users but be able to be republished and updated when the Library Manager updates or adds an asset. Then the end users could just "Get" the library folder after each update and their library would be up to date.
When Creating Assets, often I have to repeatedly republish the asset. It would be nice to have a Republish workflow that could do the following with one button:
- publish to same folder
- publish with the same asset name (to overwrite)
- Set 2D View Options.
Also, if the asset has already been published, these setting should be remembered.
Please please please please fix the Plugin so it doesn't overwrite my keyboard customizations all the time.
The default setup is ridiculous. I want to draw a Circle in a sketch. In plain Inventor I press C and I'm ready to go. In FDS Inventor I have to Press C + Enter...
It's the same with T for text and C for constrain and on and on and on... oh and F for fillet. Why are Facebook and Twitter even options in there?
I understand why you may want to set them initially, but in no way should a plugin EVER override the settings a user has implemented with in the UI.
This has driven me nuts for 3 years now... my only regret is it's taken this long to post it on the Ideastation.... I have however brought it up for the last 3 years during the beta and this sillyness is still in the product... I mean come on, Facebook and Twitter shortcuts from within a Sketch? I would have loved to have been in the room when that idea was suggested. Bonkers.
My sarcasm is justified when you consider how much of a pain this is on a daily basis. Please fix this ASAP.
The replace with asset function in the Feature Pack is nice but it doesnt improve the workflow pretty much if the connectors doesnt reconnect. It would be nice if Connectors reconnect using their names. When you replace an asset it is mostly with anything similar and the connector points use the same names.
The idea is to have a warning when you open a factory layout that give you an information if your assets is up to date and the possibility to update individually each asset to the latest version if needed
We would like to see the posiblity to list in an existing 2D DWG layout all 2D blocks (already possible in FDS2015 R2) and map the blocks with already published 2D or 2D+3D factory assets based on corresponding naming or select manually and suggest replacing with the factory assets. This is now only possible after publishing of the asset.
Today, when inserting a point cloud, the placement is arbitrary - that is, is selects the point I picked in space. That is NEVER where I want it.
- Allow me to snap the cloud to a point in my layout
-Allow me to send it to 0,0,0 if I wish (99% of the time this is what I would want)
Factory assets should have an attribute that allows the asset creator to specify what the default layer the asset should be assigned to when it is placed in a drawing. The benefit of this feature is time savings and repeatabiliyt of workflow.
This requirement was gathered at the customer roundtable in Milan, Oct 2012.
Watching users struggle trying to find how to turn these panels on.... adding some toggle buttons to the bottom of the Inventor UI (similar to AutoCAD, see attached) would help tremendously.
Hallo Leute, sorry mein Englisch ist nicht gut. Ich bin aktuell auf der Suche nach einer Software oder Datenbank bzw. Auch ein technisches Zeichnen 3D Programm, womit ein NEUER Hersteller von Fußmatten für den KFZ-Innenraum seine Matten zur KFZ-Herstellergruppe, die am PC entwerfen und zur Fertigung an die Maschinen übertragen lassen können. Mein Auftrag ist auf der Suche nach den kostengünstigsten. Erbitte Ihre Antwort. MfG Steffen B. Montag JobNEWS@BD.Bedarfsermittler.de
Right now we can choose a View Representation to use for 2D asset creation upon 3d asset publish, but if a parameter changes once you place the asset in a layout, the 2d asset view that gets generated during AutoCAD Sync uses whatever view representation is currently active in the asset, regardless of whether a specific View Rep was specified when the asset was published. The 2d publish options for View Rep need to be persistent without regard to what the key parameter values are.
IF I am not snapping to a DWG or to a grid - I ALWAYS want to move my asset immediately after placement. I have to go and select reposition. Why not just have the reposition triad be the placement triad?
