The Inventor Mesh Enabler enables Inventor users to work with imported mesh data. As shipped, Inventor 2012 can import mesh data from Catia files. In addition to Catia files, Inventor 2013 can import mesh data from STL files and from JT files. The Mesh Enabler adds the ability to post process the imported mesh data to convert the mesh features to Inventor Base features. The resulting Base features can then be used for further operations including drawings and measurements.
The technology preview of the Mesh Enabler for Inventor 2013 has ended. The technology preview will operate for a few more fays, until January 31, 2014. For Autodesk Subscription customers, a non-expiring version of the technology is available for Inventor 2014 in the Autodesk Exchange Apps site.
Graduation ceremonies are alive in the lab.
