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!!!
Today I take a look at linking excel to your Inventor part models. I show how create your excel sheet and link the parameters inside of your models to the spreadsheet itself. I also have a little bonus material for your part list descriptions. Take a look.
