Autodesk® Inventor® 2018 is here! One of the first features I noticed was the new Inventor Model Browser. The new browser makes it easier to see the different browsers available and even toggle between them. In fact, you can separate the browsers out from one another and dock them at different locations on the screen (or on separate monitors).
Inventor Primitives are a set of tools that allow quick creation of simple shapes with very little effort. With primitive tools, the use can begin a sketch on any plane or surface and then automatically start the corresponding feature tool. The primitive tools are found on the Ribbon’s 3D Model tab, however, the Primitives panel is turned off by default, so first turn this on by selecting the panel configuration pull down at the right end of the Ribbon.
