Copy and Replace in Inventor

Copy and Replace (and Copy and Place) is an application for copying files effectively inside Autodesk Inventor.

Customer Challenge

Customer has a wide variety of iLogic driven Inventor modules for quotation purposes. The challenge is copying modules fast and accurate inside quotation assembly. Also, versioning and revisioning of the quotation is very time consuming.

Customer’s standard process without Meksystems’ application

  1. In active quotation assembly, user makes Save copy as to the module he wants to copy. The file name and the location are defined manually.
  2. User replaces original module with the new one.
  3. User activates the new assembly and makes Save copy as to all variable components. The file name and the location are defined manually.
  4. User replaces original variable components with the new ones.

Process with MekSystems' application

  1. User selects the module he wants to copy, right-click:  Copy and Replace (or Copy and Place).
  2. Meksystems’ application will make the copy automatically with the right naming and location to all variable components.

Note! The whole quotation assembly could be copied to the new version as well.

Results

The copying time was shortened dramatically also avoiding errors during copying.
