FAQ: Why is my drawing reporting unresolved Inventor file references?

When files referenced by an Inventor model are not found automatically, drawing views derived from this model are said to contain unresolved file references.

A model documentation drawing view can contain unresolved file references for any of the following reasons.

  1. Paths to referenced files are not specified in the active project.
  2. The referenced files were renamed, moved, or deleted, and no longer exists within any of the storage locations defined by the active project.
  3. AutoCAD is pointing to the wrong active project file, or has not selected any project file as the active project file.

For cases 1 and 2, use Autodesk Inventor to update the project file to specify the current location of the files that are not found automatically.

For case 3, use the VIEWSETPROJ command to select the correct project file as the active project file.

Note: Model documentation is available only on 64-bit systems.
