    Question Inventor Border & Title Block questions

    Hello all, as my signature indicates, I "dabble" in Inventor, but not an expert by any means.

    One thing about Inventor that alludes me is how to set up and use default borders and title blocks.
    When you create a drawing, you're given "default" choices, etc, but I can't seem to figure out how to set up default sheet size, border, title block etc.

    I would like to default to size A and have a custom title block.
    right now it defaults to size C.

    Thanks for any guidance you can give me.

    Default Re: Inventor Border & Title Block questions

    Fairly simple demand. Open any template (pick the one that's closest to what it is you want). Save it by giving it a new name, so you don't mess up the original one. In the left-hand browser, open "Drawing resources", then "Title blocks". Right-click on any title block name you see there and choose "Edit". You can mess with these as much as you want, you will have the option to "Save as" something else when closing it. Once you're in the design mode (it's basically a sketch mode), draw whatever title block you want. You can insert parameters, user-defined text fields, etc. Give your new title block a name when exiting.
    Right click on "Sheet:1", choose "Edit sheet" and choose the required size. Your template should open with the paper size you saved with.
    Open the "Sheet:1" option. Delete the existing title block. Open "Drawing resources" and "Title blocks". Right click on the new template you created, choose "Insert".
    Save your template.
    Lather, rinse, repeat for any other size templates you might want.

    Let me know how it went.

    2D or not 2D. There is no question !
