Preface

The Autodesk

students in how to use the iLogic functionality that exists in the

Autodesk

curriculum students acquire the knowledge needed to use iLogic

to automate Autodesk Inventor designs.

In this training guide, you will learn how iLogic functionality

®

Inventor ® 2014 iLogic training guide instructs

®

Inventor ® 2014 software. In the practice-intensive

furthers the use of parameters in a model by adding an

additional layer of intelligence. By setting criteria in the form of

established rules you learn to capture design intent, enabling

you to automate the design workflow to meet various design

scenarios in part, assembly, and drawing files.

The main topics in this training guide include:

iLogic functionality overview

iLogic workflow overview

Review of model and user-defined parameters, and

equations and their importance in iLogic

Understanding the iLogic interface components (iLogic

Panel, Edit Rule dialog box, and iLogic Browser)

Rule creation workflow for Inventor parts and assemblies

Using variations of conditional statements in an iLogic rule

Accessing and incorporating the various function types into

an iLogic part, assembly, or drawing file rule

Event Triggers and iTriggers

Creating Forms to create a custom user interface for an

iLogic rule
