If you are an Autodesk® Inventor® user, you have an authoring tool, cad translator, and a viewer all in one. As a viewer, Inventor can open (and translate) many different file types. What if you are a non-CAD user and don’t have access to Inventor? What viewer do you use? I’m guessing you are using TrueView, Inventor View, or Inventor Read-Only, which are pretty good for viewing AutoCAD® and Inventor files. However, they do require upkeep. You need to download and install the new version (almost) annually. Plus, there are many other file types that TrueView and Inventor View cannot display.

Design collaboration between architecture, engineering, and construction disciplines using Plant 3D® software and Revit® software is possible with the proper workflows. This webcast explores best practices and tips for referencing models between AutoCAD Plant 3D software and Revit software, managing design changes, and optimizing models in the Autodesk Construction Cloud.
This trick is an oldie but still a goodie. If you are having some delays with your Autodesk drawings loading up over the network, you can help relieve some of that overhead by disabling the check for digital signatures on those files.
