What's New in Autodesk Inventor 2018 - Part 3

by Eric Paul on Mar 24, 2017

New Measurement Tools

What is it? For our last highlighted feature, we're looking at the newly redesigned Measure Tool. One of the most common tasks used in the design process is checking the size and position of parts using the Measure Tool. In Autodesk Inventor 2018, you can now select part and component priority within the dialog box and even dock the box in numerous places in your workspace, including the Model Browser itself. The process in which you measure is not much different than it was before, but now the dialog box includes much more information, including dual units if specified.

What's New in Autodesk Inventor 2018 - Part 2

by Yvonne Liu on Mar 23, 2017

Model Based Definition – GD&T and 3D Annotation

What is it? The demand for integration between design and manufacturing has grown and the need for more information from 3D models has become part of the design process. Based on this shift, Inventor 2018 added fully integrated Model Based Definition (MBD). Now, a user can fully design and dimension a 3D model with tolerances and further reduce or eliminate 2D documentation entirely.

Get Started in Inventor's Shape Generator

by Nigel Ambayec on Mar 15, 2017

Inventor's Shape Generator is a new approach to design lightweight, structurally efficient parts in Autodesk Inventor. It provides an intelligent strategy for maximizing part “stiffness” based on the constraints you specify.

Worried about component weight? Shape Generator removes unnecessary pieces of geometry and optimizes your model to your specifications. The technology is integrated into Autodesk Inventor, making it simple to incorporate into your existing design process. Shape Generator produces a 3D mesh that can be used to guide your design refinement, meaning it's best used early when designing. Let’s look at how to include Shape Generator in your design process today.
