Enhanced AnyCAD Reference Models

What is it? Autodesk has taken extra steps to improve the Reference Model feature of Inventor. This improvement updates the behavior of Inventor when working with CATIA, SolidWorks, NX and Pro-E/Creo files. Most impressively, a STEP model can be referenced within the Inventor assembly and when the STEP file is updated, Inventor accounts for the design change.

Why I’m excited. While this is not a new feature, the improvements to interoperability means being able to do more with Inventor without having to break my workflow. Being able to work in a mixed CAD environment, where another user is using another software, and then to be able to get updated models based on my co-worker’s design changes is an amazing thing that will surely greatly improve my ability to bring my designs to production.

Take a look at this video for more information about this feature.
