Autodesk Labs Releases 3D Annotation for Inventor
With the release of the Vault 2011 products, Vault Professional can now track change orders on any document in vault. This used to be a feature only available if you were managing an item master. It has now been extended to any document. You can simply right click any file and start a new change order from it. From there you can add any information you need including custom properties and a markup of the drawing if one is included. For a better look at this extended Vault capability, watch a short video HERE.
In todays day and age we are all very busy, and it seems we dont have much extra time. I have put together a video that will take you through a high level look at Autodesk Inventor 2011 What’s New in under 30 minutes. Of course this is not everything but should be enough to spark your interest to learn more. A few short slides and some clicks and picks, will have you wanting more information.
Let’s take a look!!!
