Allows points in an Autodesk® Inventor® model to be associatively linked from an Excel file.

General Usage Instructions

Once installed, the add-in will create the Link Points buttons at all the relevant places in the Inventor RibbonBar.

When the Link Points command is run, the Points Linker dialog appears. Importing one Excel file will generate one row in the form. You have the option to generate points, Lines connecting the points or A spline through the points.

Press the Import button, the add-in asks you to select one Excel file. Selecting the item, the corresponding entities will be highlighted and the view is zoomed all.

To update or resolve, select the item and right-mouse-click. Update will update the item with new date, with original Point Type. Resolve will ask you to select another Excel file and import it with its data, with original Point Type.
