Question

Can I open an inventor file from a newer version?

 

Answer

You cannot open an Inventor file from a previous version and you cannot save an Inventor file as a previous version, as Inventor is not backward compatible. You can however save out a SAT file and open this up in the previous version. The SAT file will lose all of the details in the browser, but you could use the feature recognition tool off to rebuild the features in the browser.
