If you’re an Inventor user and haven’t been living in a cave, your probably aware of Autodesk’s Labs website: http://labs.autodesk.com. This site is a must see at least once a week to see what Autodesk is up to. The labs website is a compilation of various pre-release utlities Autodesk is working on that may or may not make it into the final products. It’s an excellent way for them to get some feedback on new technology to determine if it’s even worth spending the time on developing or not. Here are some of my favorite lab utilities for Inventor:
- 2D to 3D tool:
- Feature recognition for Inventor
- iCopy for Inventor
- Shrink Wrap addin for Inventor
- Sustainable Materials Assistant
All free, try them out if you haven’t already.
