I have often been asked about how to assign layers to different components in an Inventor drawing. The number one variation of this question involves some sort of automatic layer mapping to different parts in an assembly. While this isn’t a task that is automatic, there are some selection techniques that can be used in drawings to speed this task. Check out this video to see how selection filters, browser selection, and the “select as edges” right click option can help you assign layers to your drawings as well.

Well, I’m on the road again. What benefit does that have? I get to learn more about how actual users are USING Inventor in their day to day activities. It also allows me to make their job easier by showing them things that may be under their noses but they don’t understand how to fully use it. For instance, take the selection filters in Inventor. Too often I see users using AutoCAD commands (window, ctrl key, picking individual, etc.) to select objects in their assemblies. There are a wide variety of selection filters based on what you really want to select waiting for you to explore.
Check out the video to see just a few of them in action.

Get your priorities straight……with Autodesk Inventor that is.

Depending on what you need to select within your parts and assemblies you have tons of choices. Considering the task at hand you might want to select a sketch and not a face, or a feature and not a part when you’re in an assembly. Take a look at this video for a few examples.
