Q: Is there a way to use the Inventor View Control to print?
A: Inventor View Control has the property ApprenticeServerDocument that gives you access to methods and properties of the ApprenticePrintManager object. This print manager allows to adjust the printing parameters and submit the print job.
The following button event handler prints the current document using the printer "Autodesk DWF Writer for 2D".
Private Sub btn_PRINT_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btn_PRINT.Click
.PrintManager.Printer = "Autodesk DWF Writer for 2D"
The attached example prints an Inventor 2014 .ipt file from a Visual Basic 2012 project.
