I just checked the Autodesk’s Manufacturing Community website and I was surprised seeing my name there in the front page of the site. 😀 My design portfolio is featured there. Hehe. 😀 I haven’t uploaded my other designs there. I guess I’ll upload all of them in the following days to come. 😀

Sheet Metal Enhancement 2: Flange/contour flange creation around edges

Before, we all have to select one edge at a time to create a flange in Autodesk Inventor. Now, we could create the flanges by selecting a loop. Of course, one benefit of this is that our sheet metal creation is faster. (more…)

Easily switch from New dialog box to Open dialog box and vice versa in Autodesk Inventor 2008. Thus, forget all about clicking File>Open if you are in the New dialog box or vice versa. 😀

Migrating from Inventor 11 to Inventor 2008

Migrating from Autodesk Inventor 11 to Autodesk Inventor 2008 was quite a challenging one for me. I have to uninstall to uninstall ADMS 5, Vault 5 and Inventor 11 content center because they’re not compatible with Inventor 2008.

Suggested Deployment procedures
First, you should backup Vault.

Uninstall the following:
– Autodesk Inventor 11
– MDT 2007
– ADMS 5
– Vault 5
– IV 11 Content Center

Then, install the following:
– Autodesk Inventor 2008
– MDT 2008
– ADMS 2008
– Content Center
– Vault 2008

And if you still want to use the old content center, just restore the backup.

Make sure that you comply with the graphics and systems requirements. More information can be found here.

How to roll up the dialog box in Inventor 2008

You’ll notice in the new Autodesk Inventor 2008 that the pin icon is not being shown anymore in the dialog box. The pin icon in the previous releases of Inventor is used to roll up the dialog box so that you do not have to move the dialog box somewhere in the screen to be able to work conveniently. In Inventor 2008, you’ll just have to right click in the top bar of the dialog box and select auto-hide. Click here to view the screenshot.

Autodesk Inventor LT

The announcement of Autodesk Inventor LT has been a surprise for me. You may download it for free to use for a limited time only from the Autodesk Labs website. You may have a preview of the functions of Inventor LT here. Basically, Autodesk Inventor LT is a stripped down version of Autodesk Inventor Suite. In Autodesk Inventor LT, one could create the following:

  • 3D Part models
  • Part Drawings
  • Photorealistic Renderings
  • Publish DWF files
  • Native 3D multi-CAD Export and Import
  • Native 3D multi-CAD translation (see Autodesk Labs website)

NOTE: This is available for download in the following countries: United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. Too bad I cannot download and test it here in the Philippines. 😦
