Configuration: Take the follwing ini as a submission:

The translator addin reads the ini file configured in the option with the name Export_Acad_IniFile. If you write the settings directly it will not be read by the translator addin. But we figured out if you reference in the ini file, the same ini file, it will work that the addin then reads this settings. The advantage in this way is that you just need one file instead of two.

When you are creating a ini file by Inventor, do not use that one in -Options. Be sure you use the ini file which contains “Export_Acad_IniFile” and as value the ini file you have created.
In the ini file below there are paths defined, which are containing “Inventor 2015”. You have to watch out if you have another version of Inventor then 2015, then you have to customize these paths.

When exporting multisheet IDW or DWG files, inventor creates foreach Sheet a own dxf file. If setting USE TRANSMITTAL is Yes, than Inventor will zip the result into a zip file with same name as the destination dxf file.

When you are creating a ini file by Inventor, do not use that one, because it is not created by the DataIO addin. Therefore the options inside the generated ini file are not correct. Instead use the method mention in this forum thread. The full list of options with a description for the DataIO addin you can find in the pdf, which you can download here.
