I was recently requested to come up with a basic demo for a customer to show how Inventor could use iParts or in the customer words a family of parts.  So i created the basic demo using custom parameters, iParts and a simple table in the drawing that will automatically update when the active iPart is choosen for the drawing view.  The video will cover 3 areas of Inventor that has many uses.  Enjoy!!!

In Autodesk Inventor 2011 that has all changed.  Autodesk added the ability to automatically break hatch patterns when adding text.  So now your drawing views will look something like this:

What’s nice about this of course it allows for a  more professional look to your drawings. 

This functionality by default is turned on and you can find your setting for it under your document settings tab.
