Inventor 2016 has a host of amazing new features and improvements (387 to be exact), but often some of the most useful additions are overlooked due to thier small scope. Today we’ll look at one feature that you asked for and has finally been added to Inventor!

Background

Before Inventor 2016, if you wanted to duplicate a Parameter as a User Parameter you’d have to manually re-create it entirely filling in each value individually.

And if that Parameter was a multi-value type? Forget it, what a pain!

It’s really as simple as:

  • Selecting the parameter
  • Right-Clicking the parameter
  • And choosing Copy To User Parameter”

This will copy the Parameter to a User parameter including it’s settings, even for Multi-Value parameters!
