Just pre-ordered Windows 7 to take advantage of the 50% discount. Can’t stay with XP forever. That’s all until October.

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.

Somewhat long overdue update to ‘All Thumbs’ has been released. This update is a total re-write of the application. You will now have the ability to turn off the application from the admin interface window. If your not familiar with what ‘All Thumbs’ does, it basically allows you to set a predefined standard background color and options for file thumbnail views no matter what your Inventor background color or options are set to. You can download it from the ‘CAD Tools’ page here: http://cadtoolbox.com/?page_id=96
