Hi All, I was wondering if there was a way to save a copy of my drawing into two different locations when i hit a button..ie flash drive hooked to my computer and my sever at the same time? Thanks, Brian
ndogg1080 posted a topic in Autodesk InventorHello, I have Inventor 2008 SP2 and AutoCad 2008 running on a Windows 7 machine. Since it has been installed on this machine, I am having trouble saving an Inventor 2D drawing as an ACAD 2D drawing. The drawing translates OK except that the radii in the Inventor Drawing turn into many small line segments in the ACAD drawing. This is a problem for purposes of dimensioning and exporting to CAM software. Can anyone help remedy this? Many thanks.
JR_Ohio posted a topic in AutoCAD Beginners' AreaI created a spreadsheet of about 40 rows to be used to create different parts. I then created a part "we'll call it Board_A". I linked to the spreadsheet and used 3 of the fields for my dimensions. Lets say I named the length (which was the extrusion number) as "Len_1". I saved it and all is well!! I then created other parts and used the spreadsheet for the dims. I then went back and opened "Board_A" and saved a copy as "Board_B". I closed Board_A and opened Board_B. I then rt clicked on "Extrusion" so I could change the length from "Len_1" to "Len_1_A" which is another row (field) on that same spreadsheet which is still linked. When I tried I received a message that said I couldn't do that (I forgot the actual message!) I clicked the Parameter icon and the only fields showing on the popup spreadsheet box were the ones I had previously used for those parts that I made from scratch. I thought I figured this out once but if I did I forgot. I deleted the spreadsheet link and then re-added it but nothing I have tried has worked. Is there a way to get these fields to be usable with a Copy of an existing part or do I just have to start from scratch and make the similar part? I hope this makes sense!! Thanks JR_Ohio
