Micro Concepts Inventor Tools is an add in application containing a collection of tools and utilities to enhance Autodesk Inventor.
Inventor tools and updates are only available for use in the U.K. by customers with a current Micro Concepts support contract.
To run the tools a unique authorisation code is required per machine. A request code is generated when the product is first run. An authorisation code is issued that ties in with your request code and contract expiry date. A new code is issued on renewal of your contract.
5 ways Inventor Tools can help you
1. Automating data entry ( a pre-requisite for Vault Basic)
Keying the wrong information when adding text information to Parts, Assemblies & Drawings makes it difficult to interpret search results.
- Lookup lists of pre-defined data
- Mandatory entry so the designer has to input
- Force uppercase
- Force creation on save
- Max character length
2. Automating file creation on save
When saving your drawing you want to automatically create a different file type such as PDF, DWG or DXF & store in same folder.
Being able to create a set of DXF files ready for manufacture at the same time as the main drawing can save a lot of time.
