Inventor Professional 2017 is one of the latest editions of professional software for engineering design. With new professional-level Design Tools your designing process becomes faster, while your performance gets optimized at the same time. Besides that, the developers of Inventor Professional 2017 have taken in consideration all previous versions
and enhanced interoperability tools in order to establish interconnection among all aspects of projects that you work on. In addition, the communication tools have also undergone modification and now the information is available for sharing to anybody and by anybody within your team, and that does not depend on their software or location.
The summary below lists down all the new features of Inventor Professional 2017 that are available in the new version.
Professional Grade Design
Inventor Professional 2017 provides the support of mirroring and patterning i-Features for multibody parts. With this new version, user is able to window select several closed profiles within the Extrude command. During Boundary Patches design, user can access new Guide Rails and pick points and/or curves to develop the shape of patch and control form as well as continuity with a better precision. You can also access Angle option within Ruled Surface in order to define the surface direction.
Inventor Professional 2017 demonstrates multiple improvement to workflows for presentations in order to build high-class presentations as well as other types of instructional views within assembly. Major improvements to the Presentation environment are generally divided into two general areas – storyboard and snapshots. Likewise, all the existing presentations (IPNs) can completely migrate within software. Exploded views can now be converted to snapshots, where by animations can be converted to storyboards, while tweaks remain preserved.
3D Sketch Enhancements
Inventor Professional 2017 contains design enhancements, while allow users to perform a faster design. 3D sketch environment has undergone significant changes and now requires less time and effort to construct 3D sketches. With help of 3D Transform, the geometry can now be moved and rotated faster and more precisely. Latest constraint types assist in providing a more efficient control. Sketch geometries can be added directly onto 3D faces. 3D sketch geometry can be easily copied and pasted within the same existing sketch.
Inventor Professional 2017 provides an expansion to AnyCAD, so that STEP models have an option to be attached in a form of Reference Model, while maintaining a direct link to the file, which means it will change once STEP file has undergone certain changes.
Inventor Professional 2017 demonstrates major enhancements of the reference model update process, which now is able to perform an efficient level of associativity. This includes SolidWorks, CATIA, Pro-E/Creo and NX files. The multithreading function has further expanded to be able to boost the performance during the process of updating and import.
Inventor Professional 2017 demonstrates an enhanced level of robustness and efficiency, thanks to new improvements to its framework and main engines, which will definitely be useful to all the professional engineers and designers.
