Be sure to attach your details and views so that they stay connected and display your data as you intended.

Tipster David Edward Gaskill shares some tips for working with detail views in Autodesk Inventor.

“If you have ever created a detail view and then later moved the view that the detail is associated with and found that your detail view is not where you expected it to be, you may want to try this tip.

First, create a detail view.



Select and right-click the boundary created for your detail view.


Select Attach from the dialog box.

Pick a point on any geometry in the boundary area. You will know it when you see a yellow dot appear.



Your detail view is now attached to the base view. If the geometry relocates in the base view, the detail view tags along. If you find you don’t want this to occur, you can right-click and select Detach. Now if the base view changes and geometry moves out of the boundary area, the detail view will stay put and possibly reflect new geometry.


Notes from Cadalyst tip reviewer Brian Benton: One of the reasons to use Inventor is that it automates detail creation. Be sure to attach your details and views so that they stay connected and display your data as you intended. You can always turn this off if the need arises due to a design change or drawing requirement change.
