iMap for Inventor Technology Preview Available

18 Jun, 2008

Preview helps Inventor users work with critical interactions between assembly components.


Autodesk has introduced the iMap for Inventor Technology Preview for Inventor users to help them more easily navigate the various components of their digital prototypes. iMap reportedly provides intuitive, graphical views, thereby helping Inventor users visualize, understand, and control important relationships and constraints in Inventor assemblies.

Skeletal iMap views help identify and modify complete assembly structure, including subassemblies, and enable simplified skeletal modeling workflows. Constraint iMap views help interactively investigate, create, and manipulate key relationships and constraints. These new iMap views make it easier for Inventor users to work with critical interactions between components in their assemblies, the company states.

Available as a free download from Autodesk Labs, iMap for Inventor Technology Preview works with 32-bit versions of Autodesk Inventor 2009 software, as part of Autodesk Inventor Suite, Autodesk Inventor Routed Systems Suite, Autodesk Inventor Simulation Suite, and Autodesk Inventor Professional. Although the functionality of iMap will work with all language versions of Inventor 2009, the Autodesk Labs and iMap user interfaces are in English only. iMap for Inventor Technology Preview is not compatible with Autodesk Inventor LT software.

All copies of iMap are programmed to expire on April 1, 2009.
