Description

Constraints between parts in assemblies are often done with help of the reference planes, axes or points of each single part. To perform a quick selection of these objects it would be easier to see them in the graphics window instead of the browser. 

 

This add-in gives you the possibility to show or hide the reference geo for the active part or assembly file. But that’s not all. The biggest benefit is that it also works with every selected occurrence in an assembly, and you can select to progress all sub occurrences as well. 

 

RefGeoToggle provides you a toolbar to start the commands. This toolbar can be shown either with a button in the ribbon or with the context menu. It is also recommended to create a shortcut key for the button. See the screenshots for a clear visual explanation.

 

The following objects are supported:

  • Workplanes
  • Workaxes
  • Workpoints
  • Sketches
  • BOM References

 

Also selcted patterns and single pattern elements are supported by the command.

There is also an option menu where the user can change the tool bar layout.

With Ref GeoToggle you work faster – and therefore more efficiently.

Save hundreds of clicks a day.

This is a 30 days evaluation version.

 

Please contact me if you want to purchase a full version or if you need the add-in for an earlier version of Inventor. The full version is also available with German user interface.

  • Great improvement-but-
    Dave Smith | December 08, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I purchased the app. It does work and is a great improvement over what is available in Inventor. However, I would like to be able the select parts/assemblies in larger assemblies and have only the work features associated with the selected items visible.


  • Sehr nützliches Werkzeug
    Tanja Richter | October 24, 2016

    Beim Erstellen von Beziehungen in Baugruppen benutze ich sehr oft Ebenen. Mit diesem kleinen Hilfsmittel kann ich sehr schnell die benötigten Ebenen sichtbar schalten und dann wieder ganz komfortabel ausblenden. Ich brauche die Teile nicht erst umständlich im Browser zu suchen, sondern arbeite direkt im Baugruppenfenster.


  • great tool to win time

    great app, good job, is useful and i also use it several times a day. Thanks!


  • Love this app! Use it many times a day. Really helps in assembly and part mode.
    Mike White | February 01, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This app has several options I find very useful. I keep it in my marking menu and when I go to place a part I'm 2 close clicks away from having the top level planes on, just the top level planes, not all planes. Then I just left click on the part I'm placing (bringing up the marking menu again) click the RefGeo button, click the "show first level" and (only) the planes on the part I’m placing come on. This allows quick and easy plane to plane placement. The two actions I just described took only a few seconds. No need to go to View>Object Vis>Origin Planes only to have every freakin plane in the assembly come on. Nor do you have to drill down through the model tree to find the origin planes for the part you’re placing. When I’m done placing the part three very close clicks to turn all the planes off again.
