Recent Autodesk Inventor Updates: Under the Hood

 

In last few days, Autodesk released Update 1 for Inventor 2015 Service Pack 1 and Update 3 for Inventor 2014 Service Pack 2. The customers who have Autodesk Application Manager installed on their computers would have already seen the notifications pop up about it. So I thought I will look under the hood of these two updates to see what is in them for our customers. Here is what I found:

Update 1 for Inventor 2015 Service Pack 1

Important issues resolved:

• Drawing view and browser does not honor current assembly state
• Content Center library migration looses Material reference
• Counterbore depth value missing when using specific thread sizes
• Drawing dimension extension line missing (surprisingly it was an issue in Inventor 2014 as well that got resolved with Update 3 SP 2, so wondering if a recent Windows update had something to do with it)
• Inventor hangs when saving a file after expand and collapse the browser
• Crop View can’t be deleted when annotations are unattached
• Slow performance of drawings with Multibody part views

Update 3 for Inventor 2014 Service Pack 2

This is a cumulative update, which means that the previous updates are not prerequisites. Important issues resolved in this update:

• Punch tool does not retain reference location (an issue that one of our customers had recently)
• Random triangles display in drawing
• Drawing dimension extension line missing (surprisingly it was an issue in Inventor 2015 as well that got resolved with Update 1 SP 1, so wondering if a recent Windows update had something to do with it)
• Inventor hangs when saving a file after expand and collapse the browser
• Unexpected exit when replacing component
