This new plug-in into Inventor and Inventor LT 2012 can provide near real time feedback to design decisions you make, while you are developing the plastic product. You will get direct feedback on how the design desisions impact the manufacturability, cost and sustainability of the product. The easy to interpret feedback can ensure that the design process moves in the right direction and that the part is developed to conform to plastic part design guidelines.

Customizing the Marking Menu – Inventor 2012

With the introduction of Inventor 2012 Autodesk has increased user productivity with the introduction of the Marking Menu.  This new menu will allow for quicker access to the most common features/commands no matter what environment you happen to be working in.  This new menu replaces the right-click context menu.  The new menu takes a couple times of working with it to get totally comfortable but it sure is a great time saver.  This post will show you how to customize this menu to add all your favorite commands you most commonly use.  I show other aspects of the menu even how to revert to the classic look but remember the classic look probably won’t be around forever.
