iLogic for Autodesk Inventor

iLogic for Autodesk Inventor 2010 provides powerful rules based design automation built directly into the application. What’s even better is that for Subscription customers, iLogic is available as a free download from the Autodesk Subscription Centre.

Using iLogic as part of your design engineering process will allow engineers to automate tasks that would have to be done be done manually as well as build rules into designs to avoid making errors. iLogic uis built directly into Autodesk Inventor and allows a design engineer to work with new or existing designs to build rules within the easy to use and intuitive interface. You don’t have to be a programming genius to build the rules, just have a basic understanding of If, Else statements and then use the tools within iLogic to build the rules you want.

iLogic provides help all the way along the process by providing easy access to parameters and features so that they can be included within the rules to change the size, suppression etc. iLogic rules can also be used on assemblies so that when inserted into an assembly they can be quickly and easily updated using the rules based automation. This is a great way to automate standards based design or health and safety requirements within the design to ensure they don’t get missed.

Have a watch of this Introduction to iLogic for Autodesk Inventor which goes through the creation of some rules within a part design to control size, features and material:

If you are an Autodesk Inventor user on subscription you can download iLogic free of charge from the Autodesk Subscription Centre.

Keep reading as we'll be adding more iLogic videos and articles in the near future.

Happy Automating!
