Sovelia CAD Add-in (Inventor) 23.0 What's New

Thinking of upgrading? Want to see when a feature was introduced? Below outlines all the major inclusions into the 23.0 version of the CAD Add-in for Inventor.

New features


Support for Autodesk 2023 products

The major feature for this release of the CAD add-in for Inventor is that it now supports installation onto Autodesk Inventor 2023 as well as AutoCAD 2023 and Vault client 2023. This support enables customers to take full advantage of the new features of all the latest Autodesk products with the seamless integration between Sovelia PLM and the Autodesk CAD and Data Management solutions. Testing has ensured the functionality experienced with previous versions of Autodesk software has been maintained and all features work as expected.

Automation of 3D publish function for Publish and Promote

From this version forward 3D viewer files are exported to the server automatically for the Publish and Promote commands within the Sovelia Ribbon. This removes the human error of forgetting to manually update the 3D view file.

The below shows the code added to the configuration file (Profile-Inventor.xml) as a <PostAction> for parts and assemblies so that when published Sovelia PLM contains the most accurate representation of the file.

3D publish Automated

By default the Action is commented out on Promote.

Rather than removing functionality of being able to manually Publish files to the 3D viewer, as in the previous version, the function and button in the ribbon has been maintained in this release allowing flexibility to the user to decide when and what to publish. 


Faster updated property change before & after Clone

It is now possible to open the Property card of an item whilst in the clone command. This allows property changes to the original without exiting the command thus saving time and errors. If left open the property card will also be visible after the clone allowing post clone edits to be carried out more efficiently.
