Inventor is a powerful CAD tool that primarily uses parametric modeling. However, there's much more this tool can do in regards to modeling. Inventor comes with vector-based modeling tools, making it a great tool for anyone moving to the 3D world with a traditional 2D background.
In this session of Autodesk Virtual Academy, we go over the various tools such as trim, extend, and offset found in Inventor to help modify and optimize your 2D sketches. We also illustrates how to share your sketches and when this feature might be useful.
Join KETIV & Autodesk on December 6th or 7th for Inventor Insider, a rare and unique opportunity to test drive the next phase of Inventor in its alpha environment, provide feedback to the production team, and shape the future development of the software. This event will be held in Brea, CA with the Autodesk Product Management, Development, and User Experience teams.
Autodesk recently released the R2 update for Inventor 2017, which came with 40 new enhancements and changes to the software to improve user experience. We'll show you how to download these updates, as well as any other future updates, using the Autodesk Desktop App.
In the past, users often downloaded and installed updates via the Autodesk Application Manager. With the release of the new Autodesk Desktop App back in May comes a new set of steps for downloading and installing your updates.
Last week, Autodesk released the Inventor 2017 R2 update which includes productivity enhancements voted on by Inventor users worldwide. Over 40 enhancements have been made in sketching, part and assembly modeling, design automation, drawings, interoperability, and presentations to help you get your work done faster and make great products. Today, I'll show you some of my favorites.
This past Autodesk Virtual Academy covered Factory Design utilities and the workflows inside of AutoCAD and Inventor. So we're going to go over just a few of the highlights from the first half of the session. To find out more you'll have to check out the video for yourself on the KETIV YouTube channel.
This post is going take you through and explain how you can find the physical properties of a design using the Region Properties command.
The Region Properties tool is used to evaluate the area, perimeter, and the Area Moment of Inertia properties of sketch loops. It then takes all of the necessary measurements from the sketch coordinate system. The Region Properties tool then calculates the physical properties based the on the selected sketch entities.
One of the most common issues we run into here at the KETIV Lifeline support desk is how restore the Vault tab if it goes missing in Inventor. We'll show you three ways to solve this issue so you can get your Vault tab back.

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.
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.

What is it? The Tube and Pipe environment in Inventor 2017 recieved upgrades to make your life easier. The Find in Browser context menu option is now enabled during route creation and also when placing flexible hose fittings. Two new context menu options, Offset Point, and Intermediate Point, were added to allow you to create multiple intermediate points when you route a flexible hose with fittings. Also, the message box that displays when you check a problematic bend radius has been replaced with a new Show Violations dialog box.
