Autodesk Inventor 2008 now offer us a better option on how to manage the revision number with out having it repeating on all the sheet in our drawing file (idw). In the earlier releases, when a revision table was inserted the revision number would end up on all the sheets with the same number, why, because the revision number would be attached to the iProperties of the drawing. See Image below…
Now in Autodesk Inventor 2008 you may choose your revision number to be controlled by the sheet and not the idw. How do we manage individual sheet revision number, look at the following steps?
1. Select the revision table icon
2. The following pop up window will be as followed,
3. Select Active Sheet with Auto-Index, and also you have the option to go with Alpha or Numeric.
F.Y.I. You’ll notice now that the revision number doesn’t affect the original title block. Why, because the text parameter selected is still the drawing revision iProperties you must update or create a new title block with the sheet revision text parameter. As seen below,
4. Now your revision number is sheet base and not drawing based. If you select on edit sheet you will see there is a new section for revision number. (That where you can manually change the sheet number)
