Refactoring Tool (Trial)

Refactoring Tool (Trial)




This app provides almost the same functions as Design Assistant which is attached to Autodesk® Inventor® and can be operated with Microsoft® Excel® as user interface.


This application analyzes the reference relationship from one specified Target File, and does file operations using the results of the analysis. There are three major functions.

(1) [Change file names]: Filename and/or part number of file will be changed. The references of another file which are referencing to renamed file are also updated if necessary.

(2) [Replace references]: The reference destination will be replaced. If other than ‘0’ is written at [Make file if not exists?] cell on worksheet, the original file will be copied as the reference destination file (if the destination one is not existing).

(3) [Delete lonely files]: Files in the project which don’t have any reference relationship to Target File will be deleted. In many cases, these will have been used in the past but are no longer used at the current assembly. If folder is emptied due to deleting files, the folder will be deleted also.


In addition to the above three major functions, there is the following auxiliary function.

(4) [Migrate Docs]: If document files exist in the reference relationship which are saved on older version of Autodesk® Inventor®, they will be overwritten with current version. This function needs Autodesk Inventor. (This function cannot be executed with Inventor View alone.)

Trial Description

    本来、この手の事はAUTO DESK側で 供給されるのが本筋ですね。 少し使用してみましたが、楽にリネームが出来ます。 今まではリンクの問題でIDWを持て余していましたが、 これがあれば、流用設計に大きく貢献してくれます。 同名のファイルが乱立するのが嫌でしたが、 これで、問題が一気に解消しました。 ありがとうございました。

  • 設計者目線の効果的な機能と直感的でシンプルな操作

    ファイル名や部品番号の変更といった実設計の場面で頻繁に行われる作業を、Design Assistantの数倍使いやすいインターフェース(Excel)で実現しています。 ファイル名変更の煩わしさや、Design Assistantがイマイチ使い方が分からないと感じていた方には是非おすすめしたいツール。 とりあえずツールを開けば使い方は誰でもすぐに分かります。 また、「孤立ファイルを削除」機能は秀逸。
