CT DrawingMakerEx (Extended)

Win64, English

Add-in for Autodesk® Inventor® which creates drawings for standard profiles such as pipes, rods, angles etc. Enriched with generator option that create drawings for all the files in a selected folder.

General Usage Instructions

In the context menu just click CT Make Drawing (Ex) and that's all


choose the path to the folder (when using the Generator).

The algorithm will create a drawing according to the saved settings. First, it will create a base view, then a side view. If the size of the views does not fit on the drawing sheet, it will decrease according to the selected scale. If option "with break" is selected, it will be matched to the sheet. If this option is not selected, the scale of both views will be reduced. Next, according to the profile recognition (from base view), the appropriate dimensioning will be applied.


The algorithm recognizes the type of profile based on the base view. It is important that this projection is in the position as in models in the Content Center database (XY Plane). The algorithm copes with twisted views by 90, 180, 270 degrees, but the problem is at the other values. In case the models are drawn parallel / perpendicular to the main planes, the orientations in the settings should be changed.
