Subscription account holders are given access to some really handy tools via the Autodesk Apps Exchange.
In this series I am going to run through these tools and show you how to find them, install them, and use them. In today's blog post, we are going to look at The Autodesk® Inventor® Design Checker. This App is compatible with Inventor 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017.
The Autodesk® Inventor® Design Checker is a productivity solution used to give the designer insight into the adherence of company or customer standards for the product being designed. Live Checking gives instant feedback to the user, as well as ensure a high level of quality for the entire design process.
Users can use pre-defined checks, or define custom checks with iLogic scripts to perform design checking. Executing the on-demand checking will update the design checker results, or enabling the live-checking will enable users to get the real-time feedback from the design checker during design process. The Design Checker Results Tree Browser allows users to interactively edit the objects with failed checks, and a Design Checker Results Report can show all the passed and failed check results, and allow users to export the report to excel, word or pdf, or print the report.
The video below shows everything you need to know, to get up and running with The Autodesk® Inventor® Design Checker.
