Utilizing the Content Center data that comes with Autodesk Inventor is a great way to save time modeling standard components. The thing is, there is a difference between having a large library of standard parts and a large library of Useful standard parts. The Content Center comes with so much that often times Inventor users are overwhelmed and can not find the standard parts they are looking for. Content Center Favorites is a great way to build your own selection of Content Center data. This also works great with Content Center Filters which we covered last week.

What does your Content Center look like? Many Inventor Content Centers I see will look different based on how many CC Libraries are installed, or have been created custom. All those Content Center libraries can be a lot to sort through when building a set of Favorites or when searching for a certain part. Content Center Filters are a great way to filter based on standard or user created libraries and categories. Do this before creating a list of Content Center favorites and you can save your self a lot of time. The two Content Center features work great hand in hand. Today we’ll look at Filters. Next week we’ll visit Favorites.

Life is only getting easier with the newest release of Inventor. With the addition of Parts list filters you now have the ability to control which items are displayed in your parts list. Choices you have for filters are: Assembly View Representation, Ballooned Items Only, Item Number Range, Purchased Items and Standard Content. These filters are used in combinations and are available either globally in the Parts List Style, or locally in the Parts List itself. Check out the video to see these items in action.
Check out my video of how to do this.
