The Autoplot uses specially generated drawing templates. Their default location is in the C:\Users\Public\Documents\Woodwork for Inventor\2017\V7\Auto Plot Templates.
Before starting the plotting process, make sure to select the right template. Template names describe the result of their use.
The hole table contains the following details:
Select the Woodwork for Inventor drawing template you want to modify. You can create a copy of an existing file.
In the Views tab, you may adjust the following: Number of components view projections, set Visualisation style and Scale. Separate settings are available for assemblies and parts.
In the Output Area & Bundle tab you can select view arrangement, set the type of a drawing bundle and include/exclude components by type.
The Output areas size and position tab controls component view options. You can use individual settings for different components. For parts and assemblies, you can select a distance (A;B) from the bottom left corner; you can also specify the size of the output area (C;D).
For multiple component output, you can set the area for each component (C;D); the gaps between the views in the horizontal (E) plane and vertical (F) plane and the number of columns and rows.
The drawing bundle settings control the drawing visualisation style.
The Labels and Sheet Templates tab controls the visualisation style of drawing annotations. The default path of the Woodwork for Inventor drawing templates is: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Woodwork for Inventor\2017\V7\Auto Plot Templates
After you have assigned the symbol file, you can use the symbols contained in it for indicating covers (paint, veneer, edge bands, etc.). Also, you can control grain direction, base point and other indicators.
Once you have assigned the symbol, you can specify its position. Positioning options depend on the annotation type. You can position them top, bottom, left, right, or center. Cover annotations may be placed on the edge or at a certain distance from it.
In the Range Box & Covers tab, you can select line type for different covers and for different dimensions of parts/workpieces.
The Holes tab is used to configure the hole scheme.
You can create your custom hole annotation scheme, for example:
