Are you ready for another impressive software release packed with enhancements? Some of the new release's keywords include BIM interoperability, simplification, generative design and manufacturing readiness.
Here's what's New in Inventor 2022:
Model States is a powerful new workflow that enables the user to create multiple representations of a part or assembly within a single document to provide a convenient way to engineer, manage, and manufacture designs with different dimensions and parameters, components, properties, or simplification levels.
Model states can be used for:
Machining operations from the casted model to the final part
Sheet metal stages for multiple bend operations
Weldments for weld preparation and other machining operations
Product families that have different values for dimensions or features that are shown or suppressed
Alternative assembly positions to quickly switch between them visually or used for drawing views
Level of completion for each stage as your design gets assembled
Simplification levels for removing intellectual property or high levels of detail before export
Inventor 2022's enhancements will improve the workflows with Revit and Fusion 360.
These enhancements will save time while working on BIM projects, additive and subtractive manufacturing, and exploring generative design technology.
Productivity and Performance
Parts, assemblies, drawings have all been enhanced year after year to deliver an efficient experience for everyone who works on complex parts and very large assemblies.
Improvements to graphics technology and hardware utilization have shown tremendous results across the board. On the productivity side, property panel improvements are extremely useful.
In drawings, it is possible to modify the look of the shaded views by changing the lighting style in the model. There are new drawing view options available to repurpose the camera views and 3D annotations created in the 3D model. Centerlines and center marks with extended lines now break when intersecting with dimensions.
Installation and Deployment
Autodesk Inventor and Vault 2022 provide a new installation and deployment experience, which simplifies and speeds up the installation of Inventor and Vault while providing CAD administrators new deployment options.
