We learned a great deal when we gathered your thoughts on the Autodesk Inventor UI Technology Preview. Your feedback shaped the implementation that made its way into Inventor 2010. The process was so valuable to us that we decided to do it again.
The Moldflow User Interface Preview provides an updated interface that highlights the work flow required to run Moldflow products. For each of the products a central Home tab guides you on the functionality available, whether it’s to display results in Autodesk Moldflow Communicator or run a filling simulation in Autodesk Moldflow Adviser or Autodesk Moldflow Insight. It also groups commands based on your current task allowing you to enter as much information as you wish. In the case of Adviser, it allows novice users just interested in a filling pattern to do everything they need from the Home tab so aren't presented with unwanted options, while more advanced users can delve in to access relevant functions in a logical location. It makes many of the standard Autodesk functionalities available to the Moldflow products so users familiar to Inventor should be able to pick it up quickly.
If you have Autodesk Moldflow Communicator 2010 or Autodesk Moldflow Adviser 2010, you can take the ribbon interface for a test drive and let us know your thoughts at [email protected]. Perhaps the process can repeat itself? We are looking forward to your feedback.
Collecting user feedback to shape the future of our technology is alive in the lab.
