Time and time again I get asked the same question ... how can I automate drawings in Inventor.
After some basic training, users can generally scale, position and suppress views via iLogic however come unstuck when they start to try to annotate their drawings. A while back I put together a basic example of one of the methods we have used successfully at clients to get this done.
The above video shows a tool called attribute helper. This is still available and works with Inventor 2018. Details on how to use it and where to download from can be found at: Mod the Machine - Attribute Helper
Since I created this video I have explored other variations in how to reference the edges / faces to add dimensions. I find that this method, although effective, doesn't work in all situations eg, if you need to reference circular or specific line elements of an edge. If you find that this the attribute helper method isnt giving you the ability to place the dims you need (such as when detailing specific pattern members, cylindrical faces etc ... ) then get in touch and we can chat through the various options with you.
