Autodesk offers free model simplification tech preview

August 27, 2012   by Design Engineering Staff

Autodesk Labs recently released Inventor Simplification, a free technology preview simplifies parts and assembly to protect IP or to import into Revit. Over and above Inventor’s built in “Shrinkwrap” command, Simplification is based on user feedback and offers greater flexibility and interactivity than the application’s current tools.

Capability include:

  • Visual selection of components to keep/remove
  • Replace fully detailed components with resizable primitive shapes
  • Fill holes with greater control
