iLogic Tutorial – Adding the iLogic Parameters
In addition to the numeric parameters that you’re using to using with Inventor, iLogic lets you create additional type of parameters, including String and Boolean values, which you can then use to control your model.
This portion of this iLogic Tutorial will guide you through the steps of creating additional parameters in your model, which you will later use in iLogic rules. All of this will be done in the context of a sample part model. We’ll get that model set up first.
Open a part file to work with…
Launch Inventor 2010, and make sure that the “iLogic 2010 Tutorials” project is active.
Open the file called bracket_no_rules.ipt from the project workspace.
Use the Save As command to save this document as a new file, called “bracket.ipt”. This is the file that we’ll make changes to in this iLogic Tutorial.
At this point, you should have this newly-saved bracket.ipt open in Inventor…
The screenshots used in this tutorial will present Inventor 2010’s new Ribbon UI. The iLogic functionality that’s available from the various ribbon panels is provided from an iLogic toolbar and panel bar when using the Classic UI.
