Product (assembly) copying

Top | Previous | Next


Assembly copying or renaming in Autodesk Inventor is a task that is impossible to perform using standard file management tools of the Windows operating system because it is impossible to track all the links between files. Autodesk Inventor offers several methods to perform this function. These include Autodesk Vault Copy Design function and iLogic Design Copy command. While Woodwork for Inventor offers its own Assembly Copy command which allows the user to copy selected assemblies and assign new names to files as well as to easily manipulate the iProperties values.


The operation of the command is described in the following sections:


Starting the command and navigating in the program window

Opening the assembly to be copied

Creation of component sets

Selecting location for copying

Using renaming schemes

Setting the assembly status

Selecting copying task options
