So, you have a carefully crafted Inventor drawing detailing your flat patterned part & Inventor kindly decides to remove the flat pattern. What? Why? I honestly couldn’t tell you. So what’s the best way to fix it?
Well, one of our Australian cousins has figured out a tidy solution. Sure it shouldn’t happen in the first place, but CAD software is complicated, as a result this kind of thing happens now & then (make sure you let Autodesk know via your reseller). This is an acceptable workaround, especially if you knock up a bit of iLogic code to cycle through your assembly applying this workflow. Anyhow, swing on over to BLH Drafting Services blog to check it out.
