Export

EXPORT BOM 
This tool copies the bill of materials for the active assembly to an Excel Spreadsheet. Options on the export include thumbnails of components and the option to export to a Spreadsheet template allowing automatic costing through lookup features in Excel.

EXPORT DXF  
This tool automatically exports .dxf files of all sheet metal components in an assembly. Customisable for layers, pattern notes, filename, location, format and more. 

EXPORT SNAPSHOT   
This tool launches the screenshot tool. Removes toolbars from view and brings up a floating dialogue allowing view and background options to be adjusted. Finally, it saves a copy of this image to the location of the users choosing.

iLogic

ILOGIC FACTORY  
This tool marks a component for copying with the "Generate iLogic Command".

Assembly Filter

ASSEMBLY FILTERING  
This is a powerful tool for quickly creating view reps by searching and filtering component iProperties.

Enhanced iCopy

COPY WITH CONSTRAINTS  
Select a component to copy from the modelling window, then place the component by selecting new geometry to constrain to. User will be prompted to select geometry to complete each existing constraint on the copied part. Right click provides the option to skip individual constraints.

ENHANCED SAVE AS  
This tool is the same as a regular save as, except it runs on both the part/assembly and the drawing. If triggered from the part or assembly file, the tool will attempt to find an .idw or .dwg of the same name and create a copy. If run from the drawing, it will create a copy of the component refenced by the first view placed in the drawing.

General

COLORIZE  
This tool puts a colour override on every part in an assembly. Colours are randomly selected from a predefined palette. A separate view rep is created when the tool is triggered to hold colour overrides. The style of colour palette can be changed from options dialogue.

MIDMATE  
This is a quick constraint tool. Constrain two parts or sub-assemblies by clicking a pair of faces on each. A midplane is created between each pair of faces, planes are then flush, or mate constrained together.

SET PROPERTIES PART 1  
This tool allows iProperty entries to drawing or referenced parts and assemblies on a customisable form. This form is also able to validate data entered for length, capitalisation, mandatory fields.

SET PROPERTIES PART 2  
This tool allows iProperty entries to drawing or referenced parts and assemblies on a customisable form. This form is also able to validate data entered for length, capitalisation, mandatory fields.

Vault

VAULT WORKSPACE CHECK
For those using Vault, this tool produces a list of all files contained within the workspace folder that have not been uploaded to the Vault. Useful at staff or PC changeovers to make sure designs are not abandoned.
