Several readers have asked about the Inventor add-in I created, All Thumbs.

‘Swift Prints’ has recently been updated for compatibility with Inventor 2018. In this update, the method to which your username to Autodesk 360 is obtained to validate your Swift Prints license has been changed.
If it wasn’t already easy enough to use Swift Prints with Autodesk Inventor to print your drawings, you can now print by just clicking a single button on the toolbar. 1-click adds the ability to send a print based on the last used printer configuration.
All Thumbs has been updated to the current version 2.5. A bug was discovered that did not properly retain the current color scheme when saving an assembly that required child files to be saved. You can download the update from the CAD Tools area of the website. [ Download Here ]
