Autodesk Inventor Publisher

If you’ve not yet had chance to have a look at Autodesk Inventor Publisher, you need to get yourself over to Autodesk Labs to download the Technology Preview!

Autodesk Inventor Publisher allows manufacturers to produce installation guides, service documentation, assembly instructions etc quickly and easily using the native 3D Digital Prototype created by design engineers using Autodesk Inventor. Having the Digital Prototype associative with Autodesk Inventor Publisher means that work can begin on producing all of the required technical documentation before the design is completed. Should an update be made to the Digital Prototype, it will be automatically updated in Inventor Publisher – and the two applications don’t even need to be on the same workstation!

Inventor Publisher takes some of the great user interface tools that Inventor Fusion has to offer to make it really quick and easy to pick up and use. The marking menu that is accessed from the right click menu gives you everything you need right at your fingertips.

But the biggest benefit has to be that once you have created your exploded storyboards you can output them to various formats including MS Word, MS PowerPoint and also as a Flash embedded web page!

Have a watch of Autodesk Inventor Publisher in use:

And if you want to get your hands on this great new tool, download it from labs.autodesk.com

Happy Documenting!
