  1. Hi, I was asked to create an installation/assembly drawing of a gear motor that will be installed on the side of a machine. I have some few references like the machine manual. I'm planning to trace the installation on the manual.This is my first time to create installation drawings and not quite sure if this is the way to go. I would like to ask the possible approach to create an installation drawing with just a manual as a reference..I have no information on dimensions of the parts..I would like to create something like this.. Thank You very much
  2. I am trying to speed-up dimensioning of an assembly drawing (DWG) in Inventor using iLogic. The assembly contains parts which have parameters which I would like inserted into dimension text. I can achieve this manually using the Edit Dimension / Format Text dialogue boxes to select the part parameters and insert them into the assembly dimension text. My iLogic rule can currently identify the part containing the parameters but when I attempt to write these to the dimension text, I receive an error message. The part parameters are called “No_Risers” and “riser”. “partFileName” is the FullFileName of the Part Document containing these parameters. The line which gives me the error message is the oDimensionText line : [color=red][color=red][font=Verdana]If [/font][/color][color=maroon][font=Verdana]oPart[/font][/color][color=black][font=Verdana].[/font][/color][color=maroon][font=Verdana]ComponentDefinition[/font][/color][color=black][font=Verdana].[/font][/color][color=purple][font=Verdana]Material[/font][/color][color=black][font=Verdana].[/font][/color][color=purple][font=Verdana]Name[/font][/color][color=black][font=Verdana] = [/font][/color][color=teal][font=Verdana]"Concrete" [/font][/color][color=red][font=Verdana]Then[/font][/color][/color] [color=red][color=maroon][font=Verdana]partFileName[/font][/color][color=black][font=Verdana] = [/font][/color][color=maroon][font=Verdana]oPart[/font][/color][color=black][font=Verdana].[/font][/color][color=maroon][font=Verdana]FullFileName[/font][/color][/color] [color=red][color=red][font=Verdana]End [/font][/color][color=red][font=Verdana]If[/font][/color][/color] oDimensionText.FormattedText = "<Parameter Resolved = 'True' ComponentIdentifier='" & partFileName & "' Name = 'No_Risers' Precision = '0'></Parameter>" & " No. RISERS @ " & "<Parameter Name = 'riser' Precision = '2'></Parameter>" & " = " & "<DimensionValue/>" (I have split the long line of code so it reads better on the forum. It is one line in the iLogic rule) I have tried many variations of the above, but cannot get it to work. I can successfully write the parameter values to the dimension text, but these do not update if the parameters update. I’m using Inventor 2013 Pro Any help would be gratefully received.
