Q - question

Talking iLogic rule to check part material in Inventor (default material).

A - answer With a simple iLogic macro you can check material assignment for each part saved from Inventor.

Creat a a new iLogic rule with the following contents:

materialName = ThisDoc.Document.ComponentDefinition.Material.Name
If materialName = "Generic" Then
 objSPVoice = CreateObject("SAPI.SpVoice")
 objSPVoice.speak ("Your component has no material assigned")
End If

As a trigger for this rule, set e.g. "Before document save". A part with no material assigned will report itself automatically on save, by "telling it" (voice).

The default material for parts, or iLogic macros can be preset in the part template - see I > Save as > Save copy as template.
