Installing Inventor Tooling

Applies to:  Inventor Professional 2010

Challenge

I have installed Inventor Professional 2010 and the Tooling portion is not installed.

Solution

Inventor Professional 2010 does include the Tooling module, however, it will need to be downloaded and installed.

A card is contained in the box that describes this information but is often overlooked.

To download the tooling module go to www.autodesk.com/ait

This website will instruct you how to proceed.

Attention Vista Users!!  For installation on Windows Vista, be sure to disable the UAC control found in Control Panel > Users, before installing.

Getting Started - Once the application is installed it should be listed on the Tools> Add-ins list as Autodesk Model Design.  To access this module, start a new assembly using the Mold Design.iam template that should now be available.  You will be prompted to select a component for which to make a mold.
