(Find links to all our posts and videos on the new features below)

With Autodesk releasing their new line of products there is an abundant number of new features and improvements. It almost seems like there are too many to keep up with and that’s why we at KETIV are striving to keep our customers ahead of the game.

This short video shows why.

Yesterday, through our Autodesk Virtual Academy (AVA), Loren Welch, Autodesk Product Manager, was able to give our subscribers a look at the new features Inventor 2017 is bringing us. The new features of Inventor 2017 were so interesting that it brought in viewers from all over the world, including Germany! Our viewers also brought in some interesting questions. Have you ever wanted a life like model of a person for your models? An anonymous viewer went ahead and gave us the links to GrabCAD where we can find these.

Full Windows 10 and High-Res (4K) Monitor Support

What is it? Autodesk has listened! With more users switching to the newest operating systems and monitor technology, software compatibility issues have plagued some users. Two of the most common issues were Windows 10 and high-resolution displays. There have been service packs for the most common applications, but no Inventor products were Windows 10 supported out-of-the-box until now with the 2017 releases. For users of high-res displays, there was a workaround, but it only fixed some of the icons, while others still remained too small to feasibly use.
