iFileName for Autodesk® Inventor®

Cadspec Ltd



This software has been designed to provide a simple, easy to use interface to offer automatic file naming during the day to day use of Autodesk® Inventor®. We have tried to make it as unobtrusive as possible.


Unlimited numbering sequences and be configured and provides seamless integration with Autodesk Inventor's standard commands. Whenever a call for the creation of a new file is made you are offered a choice of numbering schemas to define the filename.


The same numbering sequences can be selected when using the special saveas command as well.

  • Very useful app
    Oriol Pipo | enero 17, 2017 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    It is a lovely app which makes our lifes easier. Now we are having a yearly inventor update, and is not working on Inv 2017. I hope there will be an update. Good work.

    iFilename does work with 2017 BUT these is a simple modification that is needed. 1, Open the file 'C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\CadspecLtd_iFileNameforInventor.bundle\PackageContents.xml' in notepad 2, find this line '<RuntimeRequirements OS="Win32|Win64" Platform="Inventor" SeriesMin="Ir17" SeriesMax="Ir18" />' 3, Replace with '<RuntimeRequirements OS="Win32|Win64" Platform="Inventor" SeriesMin="Ir17" SeriesMax="Ir20" />" I will update the package soon.

  • Great Concept...but...

    I was excited about this add-in as I have been waiting for this kind of functionality inside of Inventor. I installed it on two machines and synced the databases between the two. I took some work to get it going. I had to copy the database to another location and point to that. Then it worked fine. After using it for a few weeks I began to have unexplained crashes in Inventor when saving files or exiting Inventor on both machines. I suspected it may be this add-in and removed it. The crashes stopped. So I think there is still some work to do here before it can be considered stable. I hope the developers keep at it as it is a useful tool. ++++ Update 10/22/13 ++++ I installed this in the 2014 suite and it is working great! Any issues I was having in 2013 have disappeared. I am very pleased to have the ability to automatically name new files with a personal naming scheme. I can tack a job identifier in the file name, automatically sequence the part number, and add an on the fly part description. Thanks for the effort.

  • For those of you that cannot find the setup option

    For those of you that cannot find the setup option, close all open Inventor documents and you will see a Cadspec Applications tab. The setup option is in there.

  • Wouldn't run, jus keep getting an error message
    Mike Folgers | enero 16, 2013 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    There's no setup option that I was able to access. It appears red in color in my IAP2013 toolbar. If I clik on it I get this error: "Please run IFilename Setup". I went to the root folder and there's no setup prog there either. ???

    I couldn't install it neither!the error: product failed to install Finally I resolved it, I loved it very much but it couldn't help me when I want to creat new assembly based on existing one such as design assistant.

  • Looks good...
    Martin Madaj | septiembre 20, 2012 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    Well, it was a bit tricky to set it up (mabye the manual needs to be extended) but it looks useful. Adding the date option would be great.

  • Great app
    Jerry Berns | septiembre 04, 2012 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    Very useful tool. Will you be adding support for Frame Generator components? Also, have you considered adding Date/Time to the list of supported file naming options? Keep up the good work.

  • Very useful
    Albrecht Trogmann | agosto 30, 2012 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    Useful app, especially for those of us who not are using Vault or other PDM's. It needs some litle improvements for the copy and mirror command, then it will be perfect!

  • Loving this app
    Deepak Maini | agosto 21, 2012 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

    Loving this App. In a lot of cases, I have to work outside Vault and so enforcing naming convention was always an issue. But this app has made my life very easy. The best part, I can configure it the way I want. Awesome. Good job guys.
