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.

Is It Finally the Year of Virtual Reality?

by Eric Paul on Feb 26, 2016

For many people, when they hear "virtual reality" it conjures up thoughts of terrible movies like Johnny Mnemonic or The Lawnmower Man or Nintendo's short lived game console the Virtual Boy. Half-cocked ideas from the mid-nineties, a time when we just barely started rending 3d graphics on home computers, much less photorealistic, stereoscopic images. Without the graphics horsepower to drive these ideas, they never really got off the ground. But as Moore's Law brings us more powerful hardware in smaller and smaller packages it's opened up new possibilities.

So just like Keanu Reeves, we're on to bigger and better things. We're ready to trade in our B-movie Johnny Mnemonic for The Matrix and our Virtual Boy for the Oculus Rift. VR isn't just a gimmick anymore.
