    Inventor iLogic CAD model to generate toolpath for specific CAD profiles , Not all

    Hello,

    Complete newbie, I'm using iLogic to configure a door stile (#hinges, inswing/outswing, length of door etc.) in the CAD environment. I have generated toolpaths for all the different configurations the CAD outputs. But when I regenerate the toolpath based on the iLogic, the entire .nc code for all the tool paths is posted instead of the ones selected by iLogic and are visible. Is there a workaround around this, to only post the G-code for configured profiles? Or Inventor CAM does not have this capability?

    Any help, much Appreciated.

    In the past what I've done is to copy the same complete cad file multiple times on the pc.
    So example if I have a cad file with 5 operations I would:
    Copy (duplicate) the file 5 times on the pc, so xxxx1-5
    Leave #1 tootlpath on cad #1 and delete the rest.
    On file #2 leave toolpath #2 and delete the rest.
    On file #3 leave toolpath #3 and delete the rest.. Etc...

    Then you can now post each toolpath individual.
