Have you ever needed to split your multi-sheet drawing in Inventor into the individual separate single-sheet drawings? I have found an utility that allows you to quickly complete this task. Please watch the video to see this in action and don’t forget if you would like to try this email us. I have provided in the video the best way to contact us. Have a great day!!!

It’s never been easier to take your 2D layouts and create 3D files inside of Inventor then it is now. The Autodesk Factory Design Suite 2012 allows you to share a common library of assets that are created inside of Inventor quickly lay them out inside of AutoCAD and produce those as 3D layouts with a single click. This workflow allows any AutoCAD user to quickly look at multiple layout scenarios without having the knowledge of Inventor to easily produce a 3D layout. This also holds true in the reverse where some can layout there their design intentions inside of Inventor and produce a associative layout inside of AutoCAD with a single click.
Let’s see how: AutoCAD 2D to Inventor 3D in One Click.swf
Autodesk shows once again that they listen to the users of their product.
You can change the orientation of existing drawing views inside of Inventor 2012.
Double-click a view, and in the Drawing View dialog box, click Change View Orientation . Then, in the Custom View window, specify a new view plane.
When you change the orientation of a base view, all dependent child views inherit the new orientation.
Let’s take a look:

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!!!

This post will feature working with View Representations inside of Autodesk Inventor. I take a look at setting them up inside your assembly environment and some of the tips and tricks associated to using them within your drawing environment. There is a lot of confusion between using level of detail and view representations hopefully this makes the choice a little easier.
