iLogic run on save add in: http://inventorfaq.blogspot.com/2010/11/ilogic-regel-automatisch-beim-speichern.html

Thanks Jurgen!
I was not aware of Curtis Waguespack's utility to run iLogic rules on save. So everyone: if you want to run external rules in an automatic fashion or when certain conditions are met, read Curtis' article at


It's my tool, Curtis "only" wrote about it ;)

Great tips today too

Entschuldigung Juergen:-)
I completely missed that part in Curtis' post where he referred to you as being the original author. You're the man.

This helps me so much! ilogic!!!!

Depending on your needs an add-in can be the better solution because it can be tied to the Application events (ie. On Save) without having to "link" any code to files.

Agreed. But this is not within reach of the "average" user. It would be a topic more suited for Brian Ekin's blog. BTW he wrote about it at http://modthemachine.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/01/how-to-write-an-inventor-add-in.html.

For reader's of our blog that are interested in exploring add-ins, I would refer them to this tutorial http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Autodesk-Inventor/Check-out-the-self-paced-guide-My-First-Plug-in/td-p/3115624

But anyway thanks for mentioning it.

"Now if someone can find the trick to automatically set triggers to run rules then we would have a complete automated solution … Anyone out there?"

I have figured out a way to do that and have made a little program that will let you import / edit a rule, apply that rule (inject it) to a list of parts (of your desire), and set up the Inventor Event Triggers.

Once I do some more bug testing and gather my documents, I will throw it up on github and here, so that you can update this with event trigger stuffs.

Great! Looking forward to your solution for auto-triggering :-)
