Inventor iLogic is oftentimes based on the concept of a “Master Model” where everything is self-contained including all parts, assemblies, and their corresponding constraints. A second method, one without the “Master Model”, is something KETIV Engineers have begun to explore with customers. Jonathan Kriek, MFG Solutions Engineer, shows how KETIV is using a templated automation approach with “Generative” capabilities using iLogic along with the Inventor API to create highly-customizable designs, build components on the fly, and assemble automatically based on ever-changing conditions. In this session of Autodesk Virtual Academy, see how this design methodology has helped us solve some unique customer problems.

iLogic embeds rules as objects directly into part, assembly, and drawing documents. The rules determine and drive parameter and attribute values for your design. By controlling these values, you can define behavior of the attributes, features, and components of a model. Knowledge is saved and stored directly in the documents, like how geometric design elements are stored. In this session, Jonathan just grazed the sheer power of iLogic and the Inventor API. We have gone much further, even shortening design times to a fraction of what they were before any automation was implemented.
