Are you an Inventor Fusion technology preview user on Windows? If so, get the update. If not, the tech preview is free, so you can start right now on Windows or the Mac.
The Autodesk Inventor Fusion technology preview is available on both the Windows and Macintosh platforms. When the Macintosh version was recently posted, the Windows users were "green with envy" (see above) because the Windows version was the 2012 one, and the Macintosh version was 2013-based. I am happy to announce that the team provided me with an update for the Windows version that I posted to the site.
This update provides the 2013-based compatibility and functionality as well as extends the technology preview to April 1, 2013. Please experiment with the technology preview and let us know your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org or the discussion forum.
Like the previous 2012-based tech preview, the 2013-based tech preview for Windows is available in 14 languages.
Despite being multilingual, the user is not able to select a desired language as part of the install process. To select another requires that a user change it upon first running the tech preview.
After installing the technology preview, non-English users need to change the language: Invoke Fusion, go to the Help menu, select "Select Locale," and set the appropriate locale/language.
Once users set the language, they need to close the application and restart. Users only need to do this once per installation. After the locale/language is set, Fusion will always display text in the specified locale/language.
Parity is alive in the lab.
