Problem: Asset Chain Graphics is only a polyline when first created and requries a round trip for update. The polyline graphics are not effective or desirebale by the user and therefore may not be used.
Idea: Have a update graphics button (right click on Asset?) that would roundtrip the polyline to generate the planview graphics.
I need have possibility of tone link from *.dwg file.
Using intersection feature with *.dwg link.
Using measurement feature with linked *.dwg file
I need possibility of using linked geometry via drawing creation.
working with assets i encountered a problem.
When doin an array of Assets i noticed the fact
connectors do connect but fail to update when
the origiinating object of the array change.
I can bypass this by trying to move the object,
for it can´t be moved because it´s fixed but to
simply try to move it is enough to get Inventor
to update the asset to the object it´s connected
With very simple objects this is not necessary,
but with the objects i created this tends to happen.
Can this be fixed with an update? Seems like a
minor change to me.
Currently, if you use the feature property suppression option, (see attached) the suppression is not recognized when setting various levels of detail. I use this property for turning Clearance areas on and off. When there are multiple pieces of equipment that have these clearances, we use a Level of Detail to turn them all off or on as needed. Currently you have to actually suppress the part to add it to the Level of Detail in the assembly.
i´m testing the labs tool Process Simulation 360 and i think it is a great tool and easy to use. But i don´t know the meaning of MTTR and MTBF and there is no discription.
And now my idea:
Create my layout in ACAD Architecture and put in all of my material flow, product and so on. Export an XML or something else and load it in this new labs tool. In Process Simulation 360 i want to check out if my layout can reach my output or what happen if my processor is faster, slower or stops for 2 hours because of a crash in the maschine.
A nice to have: All operations and stations are in Process Simulation 360 from my ACAD layout export.
Next: Process Simulation 360 integrated in Factory Design Suite 2013.
I think it would e a good idea to include a version of Revit in FDS. how else would you conbine a Revit 3D model with a system model to enable to creation of contextual sections i.e. sections that include the building and the system. Inventor can import Revit but not the scale of projects that we work with.
Hello Autodesk people!
I have a few ideas/requests regarding the Floor Settings in Inventor Factory Design.
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.
When we add ” BIM exchange “ connectors for Pipe flow , electrical connectors etc, to an asset, when that asset is consumed into an IAM, the connector detail is lost.
The enhancement is for the Assy to retain the BIM exchange info for each asset within the Assy IAM….
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Just an idea that could be ralized with the new technology available....
Wouldn´t it be neat to be able to walk through a facility that has not been built yet supported by a 3D wearable using the actual GPS data?
You could walk across the green field, have a look at the installations in the empty building etc... .
I´d think of this as a ver good way to spark discussions if the actual design team, as the customer could watch the virtual facility right where it would be,
adding markup through gps to the actual building layout. Other devices would enable more detailed tracking or markup.
No need to squeeze around a table anymore....
I'd like to use iLogic to access parameters of factory assets inserted into a factory layout.
Example: A few days ago I tried to access parameters of inserted factory assets using iLogic and it could not be done. I wanted to create a simple iLogic form that would show how many wall panels remains to be inserted into the wall frame (wall frame was also a factory asset and was driven by its length, width and height). Values should be taken from parameters of inserted assets. Currently it is possible to see and change factory asset parameters only in its own parameter window.
If an asset is placed on a factory floor, and is replace by other asset using component replace, nameoof the event in broeser window is got getting updated.
In browswrer window, component name is not getting replace in the new component occurence name and number.
Worth if this is fixed.
I am working on document factory layouts in the Inventor drawing environment, but have hit a snag. The drawing environment is great for creating my plan, iso and side views, but I don't seem to be able to bring the Asset Tags (haven't tried Descriptors yet) into the drawing environment. Can we add this functionality into the drawing environment to save time having to relabel the components? This could either be placed near the asset, like in the AutoCAD sync'd file, a property in a text box pull down or even something that could be placed into a parts list. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Hope all is well and have a most blessed day!
If the DWG overlay is huge, the view manipulation of performance is pretty low.
Is it neccessary to always show the dwg overlay in Inventor factory since the 3D assets have been populated?
So do you agree if we have new option to hide the DWG overlay after the 3D assets are shown in Inventor?
If the DWG overlay is hidden,the view manipulation of performance will be improved dramatically. Of course, sync AutoCAD from Inventor will not be affected.
Please vote the idea.
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?
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
