Name of frame parts

By Doug Davey on 04 May 14:43 1 answer 843 views 0 comments

I have a problem with the way that Inventor names frame parts. All I want to be able to do is give each fram part a part number I want it to have. Please help

    I have never found a simple way to number a series of members automatically, so normally I rename the members individually when created.

    When you select apply to create the member, you are prompted with the Frame Member Naming dialog box, simply click on either or both the Display name or file name to rename the member. By default the file name will become the part number iProperty.

    I would be great if there were an easy way to select a part number format, and have it automatically generate the part numbers and file names, but if it exists I've never found it!
