The 2D to 3D tool for Inventor has been around for a while. As I have mentioned before, technology previews are not intended for production use. After all, they're still in the early preview stage. They are in their infancy and are not fully baked. We are realists and recognize that some customers use them at their own risk. Technology previews are like taste tests at malls. We let people take a sip of Pepsi and a sip of Coke and tell us which one they like better. Regardless of which one they prefer, we are not promising to deliver a lifetime supply of soda. Sometimes people hate the taste of both!
So it's time to give the 2D to 3D tool for Inventor one last go round. In pursuit of this, in addition to Inventor versions as far back as R11, we are asking Inventor 2013 users on 64-bit systems for a thumbs up or thumbs down. How well does this tool integrate with the current version of Inventor?
Is this technology ready for prime time? If you think so, please say so. If you have data files where it fails, please share them with us. Now is the time to collect data to make a decision on what the next step is for this technology. You can reach us via:
