A new Category section is added to Frame Member Selection in the Insert and Change command to improve searching for a particular Family. When you choose a structural shape Category, the Family list is filtered to show only the available choices.
The Reuse and the Change/Reuse commands now display end treatments and user edits in the preview.
Legacy behavior for reused frame members has been restored. You can now reused frame members to use as a tool to other members.
New controls are added to the frame angle manipulator. You can now do the following to snap to 45 degree increments:
Shift+drag the manipulator arrow.
Double-click the manipulator arrow.
Place Component at Origin Enhancement
The Assemble Productivity Place at Component Origin command now supports ing more than one component to place in a single instance. In the Open dialog box, use the standard windows keyboard shortcuts, CTRL or SHIFT, to multi- the components you want to place.
Constraint Enhancement: New Setting to Control Axial Constraints
By default, when creating an axial constraint, Inventor tries to predict the best solution for creating the constraint. The new setting, Default to Undirected, allows you to permanently revert to the legacy behavior which was undirected by default.
Construction geometry is now ignored when ing sketch elements to a derived route.
Use the new context menu option, Delete, to manually an ed fitting from a derived route.
3 new context menu options are added to the Place Fitting and Place from Content Center commands to make it easier to place a fitting on a derived route point: Default Filters, Points filter, and Lines Filter.
When creating and editing sketched features, such as extrusions or revolutions, there is an additional way to return from sketch editing to feature definition, the "Return to Feature" command. It is located on the Sketch tab at the right end of the ribbon, next to the Finish Sketch command. The command text displays the particular feature type being worked on.
Value Edit Controls
When using reference values (dimensions, measurements, etc. accessed from the context menu) in the edit controls in property panels or HUDs (in-canvas heads up controls) the input bar is placed at the end of the value to enable further input such as factoring values and so on.
The "Allow Center Point Creation" setting is remembered for the next time the command is used.
Boolean Output Choice
The Boolean output choice is included in the Presets. When you a feature preset the Boolean choice is included in the preset. The choices preserved are: Join, Cut, or New Solid. The Boolean choice is used in presets for the Extrude, Revolve, Sweep, and Coil commands.
Property Panel - Advanced Settings Menu
This enhancement affects feature creation for both Part and Assembly features.
The setting Predict Boolean Operation is added to the Advanced Settings menu for the Extrude command. The default for this setting is checked (ON). The setting overrides the active preset Boolean output choice. Uncheck the option to use the Preset setting.
The workflow to paste copied DWG geometry into a drawing (.idw), part (.ipt), and assembly (.iam) file has been streamlined. Previously, to paste AutoCAD geometry into an Inventor file you were required to enter sketch mode before you could paste DWG geometry. Now, to paste copied DWG geometry:
In the part, drawing, or assembly file, press CTRL V or Paste from the context menu.
Select a sheet, view, or an existing sketch to enter sketch mode. A draggable rectangle displays.
Left-click to place the copied geometry.
For more information on working with DWG geometry, refer to the following topics:
Previously, the measured values of a circular edge displayed in a different order than the measured values of a circular face. All diameter/radius geometry types now display the measured values in a consistent order as follows: Diameter, Radius, Total Loop Length, Area.
