Reitec.Testplan for Inventor

Win64, English

REITEC GmbH
Reitec.Testplan is a CAD add-on for test planning based on drawings. The user can easily mark all dimensions relevant for quality assurance and export them together with all tolerances.

General Usage Instructions

The engineer can mark distinctly all dimensions relevant for quality assurance during the preparation of the drawing. To do this, numerous functions are available in the drawing view. The main element is a stamp icon (a circle with an arrow and a number) that can be assigned to any check dimension. The arrow tip points to the associated check dimension. Each stamp icon is a sketched symbol. The name of the sketched symbol consists of the prefix “VDA_Stamp_” and the angle in degrees of the arrow.

Fully automatic marking: In automatic mode, a stamp icon is assigned to each dimension in the drawing. The marking is performed clockwise on each drawing view. All icons that are not needed can subsequently be deleted.

Manual marking: This function allows you to mark one or several particular dimensions. Reitec.Testplan automatically assigns the next free consecutive number. By design missing numbers are not reused automatically, to reuse it the user must use the function ‘Refresh / Re-number’.

Free marking: Particular geometric elements in a drawing cannot be marked in automatic mode. The elements that are not supported can be marked with a "free" icon.

Refresh/Re-number: In most cases, only particular dimensions in a drawing are relevant for testing. Other dimensions need not be marked. If the user deletes markings after an automatic run, the "Refresh/Re-number" function is available to re-establish the consecutive numbering. During the re-numbering process, the arrow points are freshly aligned to the associated geometric element.

Export: The export function allows the user to transfer the check data automatically from the drawing to a machine-readable format without manual intervention. In this process, all marked dimensions are evaluated and exported to a csv-file together with all relevant details (number, value, tolerance and unit).

Commands

Ribbon/Toolbar Icon Command Command Description

Generate Stamp Icons

Automatically adds stamp icons to all the dimensions of the sheet. This is done view by view in a clockwise order. The stamp numbers are calculated in an ascending way.

Edit

Shows a dialog where the user can edit the data of the selected characteristic.

Delete all

Deletes all stamp icons in the drawing.

Add Free Stamp Icon

Not all items in the Inventor drawing view can be automatically marked with an icon. To be able to mark such elements, a free symbol of any type can be created.

Stamp wizard

Create similar testplans with a consistent order of the dimensions for similar products.

Refresh

Rearranges the stamp icons so that the stamp arrow points towards the attached dimension. The numbers will be preserved.

Export

Saves all dimension values and the tolerances into a csv-file or an excel-file.

Add Stamp Icon

Add a stamp icon for the selected dimensions. The user can freely define the number to use or use the preset value. Numbers are unique within a drawing.

Refresh and Renumber

Rearranges the stamp icons, so that the stamp arrow points towards the attached dimension. Also the numbers will be recalculated so that there are no spaces.

Copy All

Copies all inspection characteristics (symbols) of the current inspection plan layer to another inspection plan layer.

Create table

With the command 'Create table' a table with test characteristics can be inserted into the drawing.

Project parameter

Shows the dialog for editing the project parameters.
