4 Accelerate Create Production-Ready Drawings Faster and Easier Performance improvements in the Autodesk Inventor 8 Drawing Manager accelerate creation of your production drawings. With enhanced DWG interoperability you can export to AutoCAD model space at true scale for better 2D design communication. Other enhancements help you document your designs faster, easier, and more consistently. Drawing Performance Improvements Significant drawing performance improvements in Autodesk Inventor software enable you to document your designs faster, so you can focus on creating higher-quality designs. Drawing View Performance In Autodesk Inventor 8, creating precise drawing views is on average two times faster than in previous releases. The software not only reduces the time required to create drawing views, but also helps you improve the quality of your drawings. Time to Open Drawing (IDW) Files Users have said that they want to be able to open drawing files faster in Autodesk Inventor software. Autodesk Inventor 8 optimizes the process of saving drawings, and opening drawing files is significantly faster than in previous releases of the software. 4

5 Annotation Performance Autodesk Inventor 8 dramatically improves general annotation performance of large assemblies. Creating, moving, or deleting an annotation is on average 15 times faster than in previous versions of the software. Streamlined Workflows Improvements to the Drawing Manager help to make you more productive when documenting your design, so you can focus on product quality and decrease your time to market. Defer Update You may want to continue detailing a drawing file without performance degradation due to model updates. Previous versions of Autodesk Inventor included a defer update capability on a per-drawing file basis, but you still had to open the drawing document to change the setting, thus decreasing performance. Autodesk Inventor 8 now includes an option to let you determine whether the drawing opens with defer update on. In addition, you can now use Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) to change this setting for multiple drawing files. 5

6 Associative Design Views Design views are frequently used to control part visibility in the design. With previous versions of Autodesk Inventor software, you can create a drawing view based on a predefined design view in the assembly. However, the drawing view is not associative with the design view, so if the assembly is modified, the drawing view does not update automatically. With Autodesk Inventor 8, drawing views created from a design view can be associative, eliminating a time-consuming and error-prone manual update process. Open to Edit You may spend hours or days detailing large, complex designs. During this time, you may have only the drawing file open, and at some point during the detailing phase you want to validate or make a design change to a part or assembly file. With Autodesk Inventor 8, you can open this file directly from the Drawing Manager by selecting the part or assembly file from either the graphics window or browser, making it easier and faster to find and open the data you require. 2D Measure When detailing a design for manufacturing, you often need to measure a distance on the design. In previous releases of Autodesk Inventor, you can do this in the drawing environment only by adding a dimension temporarily or by opening the model or assembly to measure the distance in 3D. This requires multiple steps for what is now a simple operation. With Autodesk Inventor 8, you can use the 2D measure function to measure in the Drawing Manager environment, making it faster and easier to measure or check drawing information. Window/Multiselect You spend a vast amount of time making changes to your drawing information, such as deleting or removing objects from the drawing and changing dimension styles. Without a way to easily select many items, these changes are cumbersome, especially when compared to the same processes in AutoCAD software. With Autodesk Inventor 8 you can window or crossing window select objects in the Drawing Manager, improving your productivity when making selections in your drawings. 6

7 Standard Content Section Attribute When documenting an assembly section view, you typically do not want to section standard content such as fasteners, bearings, and gears. To exclude such content in previous releases of Autodesk Inventor, you must select each component and remove it, a tedious and time-consuming task. With Autodesk Inventor 8, an application setting enables you to determine whether content from the Content Library is sectioned automatically. This capability improves your productivity and helps you focus on the design rather than on tedious details. Retrieve Model Dimensions When you detail a design, typically fewer than 15 percent of the model dimensions are valid for detailing. However, when you want to use model dimensions in the Drawing Manager, all the dimensions are automatically retrieved, which can result in hundreds of dimensions of which you may want only 15. In Autodesk Inventor 8, the Retrieve Dimensions utility enables you to select which dimensions you want to retrieve and apply dimension formatting during retrieval. 7

8 Parts List Autodesk Inventor 8 has updated the parts list capabilities to allow flexible formatting controls to meet your company standards. Features such as column formatting to control units and column substitution enable you to apply precision and unit (length and mass) control. You can also substitute properties from one field to another; for example, you can substitute the quantity for the summation of the total length. The parts list for large and complex assemblies can be large and cumbersome. Autodesk Inventor 8 includes a resizable parts list dialog box that enables you to see the entire snapshot of the assembly parts list, making it easier to customize your output. The parts list for steel shapes, tubing, and piping commonly has a single line item for a stock part number, rather than unique part numbers for each part length. In Autodesk Inventor 8 you can represent these multiple part files by a single line item, and the length in the parts list is the sum of the lengths that are made of the stock material. Printing When you print a large document to a smaller sheet size, the line weights and gradient colors can make it difficult to read. Autodesk Inventor 8 includes options to turn off line weights during printing and print to black and white with no monochrome gradient fills, making prints on smaller paper sizes more legible. 8

9 DWG Interoperability Autodesk Inventor software continues to enhance native AutoCAD DWG interoperability by focusing on specific areas users have requested. By eliminating tedious tasks, these improvements enable you to be more productive. DWG Export When manufacturing from DWG files, numerical control (NC) applications typically read data from AutoCAD software s model space environment since this data is full scale, or 1:1 scale, as opposed to paper space data, which may be on a scale of 1:4. With Autodesk Inventor 8 you can export directly to model space and you can control whether only the model geometry is exported or whether annotations (dimension, text, border, title block) are exported too. This capability eliminates the need to open the exported DWG in the AutoCAD software application, copy the data from paper space to model space, and scale the geometry to be 1:1. When exporting an Autodesk Inventor drawing file to a DWG file, you may want to export more than one drawing sheet at a time. With Autodesk Inventor 8 you can selectively export sheets, saving you time by not having to export each sheet individually. DWG Import Because you can import DWG dimensions as sheet dimensions in Autodesk Inventor 8, importing DWG data into the Drawing Manager is on average 30 percent faster. Previously, you could not control where the dimensions were placed; they were imported as sketch dimensions, making them parametric-driven dimensions. With Autodesk Inventor 8 you can control whether the dimensions are placed as sketch dimensions (parametric) or sheet dimensions (reference). If you choose sheet dimensions, you can import drawings faster while retaining the ability to promote dimensions to sketch dimensions on an as-needed basis. 9

10 Simplify Streamline Your Design Process with Fewer Errors With Autodesk Inventor 8 you can build your assemblies in half the time, visualize the mechanistic behavior of your assemblies to decrease design errors, and have faster access to your most commonly used functions. Part Design Tools Users have asked for simpler ways to design parts and assemblies in Autodesk Inventor. Autodesk Inventor 8 includes design-specific tools that enable you to create designs faster and easier, thus increasing design quality and reducing time to market. 3D Spline You can create 3D sketches in previous releases of Autodesk Inventor software, but these sketches must have linear line segments. Using the same 3D sketch capability in Autodesk Inventor 8, you can now use smooth 3D splines to create complex shapes accurately and easily a feature that many users have requested. These splines support tangential weight, fit methods, and adding and removing points. Tangent Constraints on 3D Sketches When creating 3D sketches (including 3D splines), you often need to maintain continuity between 3D sketches and existing model edges. Autodesk Inventor 8 enables you to easily attach tangency constraints to maintain continuity, ensuring that you capture design intent and reduce costly errors downstream. 10

11 Pattern and Mirror Sheet Metal Features When you create large, complex sheet metal parts, you probably use certain features over and over in the same design. In Autodesk Inventor 8 you can quickly and easily pattern or mirror any sheet metal feature for faster production of your sheet metal designs. Streamlined Hole Dialog Box The interface for the hole feature has been updated to streamline the process of creating tapped holes. You no longer have to access four separate dialog box tabs to create or place a tapped hole. Now you can simply access all hole parameters in one easy-to-use dialog box. Assembly Design Tools Assembly design tools in Autodesk Inventor 8 enable you to create complex assembly designs faster and easier, with higher quality, to reduce your time to market. Contact Detection Solver In previous releases of Autodesk Inventor software, you can analyze the mechanistic behavior of your assemblies. However, users have requested the ability to analyze the mechanism when a component touches another and the component can move based on its degrees of freedom. Using the contact solver in Autodesk Inventor 8, you can test the full mechanistic behavior of your designs, making it easier to find design problems before they reach the shop floor. 11

12 Assembly Mirror Mirrored subassemblies are common in assembly design. Although you can create mirrored subassemblies using the derived part/assembly tool in earlier releases of Autodesk Inventor software, it s not easy to capture the additional design intent. Using the new mirror assembly functionality in Autodesk Inventor 8, you can define left and right versus a symmetrical part that is a new instance in the assembly. With the mirror assembly tool you can quickly define and capture your design intent during the mirror process. Assembly Selection Tool When working with large, complex assemblies, you sometimes need to narrow your focus. With the advanced assembly selection tool in Autodesk Inventor 8, focusing on a specific section of the design is easy. When you select a component, all associated components are also selected automatically, enabling you to focus on that part of the design. You can easily turn off components smaller than a particular size to increase assembly performance and speed design tasks. 12

13 Customization Tools Autodesk Inventor 8 enhances your ability to customize standard content library properties and keyboard shortcuts to meet your needs. Content Library Properties The Content Library is a tool that assists in generating standard part content like fasteners, bearings, and steel shapes. In previous releases of the software, the properties used to define these components were fixed, which made it difficult to generate parts lists based on standard part numbers, materials, and descriptions. With the new custom Content Library properties, you can redefine the properties to match your company standards, making it easier to get accurate parts list information. Keyboard Shortcuts Autodesk Inventor includes a standard set of predefined shortcuts. With Autodesk Inventor 8 you can easily modify these predefined shortcuts, define custom keyboard shortcuts, and import/export shortcuts so companies can easily define a standard to enhance your productivity. 13

14 Extend Powerful New Tools That Provide More Flexibility and Value Autodesk Inventor 8 includes built-in engineering data management at no additional cost, and the enhancements to the Autodesk ShapeManager save time when creating complex shapes. Built-in Design Data Management Autodesk Vault is an engineering data management system for workgroups that is fully integrated with Autodesk Inventor software. This powerful combination improves engineering productivity, decreases your product development time, and helps to reduce errors by ensuring access to the right data. Autodesk Vault Many companies suffer from lower engineering productivity and longer design cycles because of difficulty managing, organizing, and accessing accurate, timely data across engineering and manufacturing teams. Autodesk Vault improves engineering productivity by synchronizing the efforts of individual designers. Autodesk Vault manages all engineering files, regardless of file type. Files can be Autodesk Inventor, AutoCAD, FEA, CAM, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, or any other file used in the design process (such as files from other CAD systems). Autodesk Vault is easy to install, and a design team can start using it with little training or downtime. For more detailed information on Autodesk Vault, refer to the Autodesk Vault Preview Guide. Improved Autodesk ShapeManager Improvements to the Autodesk ShapeManager enable you to create higher-quality designs in less time. Face Draft Enhancements Project success requires transforming winning designs into manufacturable products. In the past, certain face draft conditions may have been difficult to create. With the enhanced face draft capabilities, you can specify a chain of fixed edges from which the draft can be applied. In addition, you can specify nontangent edges and apply draft from a work plane or planar face. 14

15 The Autodesk ShapeManager face draft enhancements simplify the creation of cast and molded parts, so you can create higher-quality designs in less time. Loft Enhancements Increasingly, product designs must take ergonomic requirements and aesthetic considerations into account. When lofting using a single rail condition in previous releases of the software, you may get results you didn t expect. With Autodesk Inventor 8, the influence of that rail propagates along the sections, ensuring that you get the loft you expect. Furthermore, lofting between sections comprising tangent entities results in tangent surfaces, thus capturing your design intent more accurately. With the new Autodesk ShapeManager loft capabilities, you can construct more-complex, smooth surfaces. Surface Offset Often during the modeling of complex parts, it s necessary to keep a surface that was or may be used in other modeling operations for downstream design iterations. In Autodesk Inventor 8, the ability to create a zero surface offset from existing model faces or surfaces makes it easier and faster to create complex shapes. 15

16 New Design Support System In Autodesk Inventor 8, the Design Support System (DSS) provides new tools that enable you to submit feedback about the DSS and obtain additional information through learning modules called Skill Builders. In addition, an updated and simplified navigation system makes it easier to access information. Feedback Loops Embedded in the DSS are two feedback loops that provide direct communication to the DSS development team. You can respond to a survey to provide feedback at your convenience, and you can use the Comments tool to address specific topics in the DSS. These comments provide the data from which the Autodesk Inventor online content and new Skill Builders are created. These feedback loops give you the opportunity to provide input into what you need from the Autodesk Inventor DSS. Autodesk Inventor Skill Builders The Autodesk Inventor DSS now provides extended learning through its new Autodesk Inventor Skill Builders. These learning modules are available on the web whenever necessary after a major release, throughout a release cycle, or when users require it. Easy access from Autodesk Inventor makes Skill Builders a quick solution for enhanced productivity. Simplified Navigation System The new user interface for the DSS provides quick access to information. Because there are fewer menus, it s easier to access to online help, tutorials, and Show Me animations.
