inventor Folder Parameters


I am having some issue creating new categories in inventor. At work we trying to create category that will contain Leds that will have the parameters as clever pins so that the LEDs can be auto dropped into a number of holes. ATM I can't find away of setting the parameters in the family properties to allow the led to be published in the custom category

RE: inventor Folder Parameters

I think this may be what you are looking for..
manage tab.. author section.. component button in the author dropdown..
Have you already created the imates?
Maybe you can find additional information here..

FWIW.. The Inventor discussion forum on Autodesks site is far more active and far more helpful than this forum...
Not nearly as many users here..
I'd suggest you direct all your questions there in the future..
