What’s New for Inventor 2017 R2 (Customers with Subscription)

Inventor 2017 R2, an update for customers on subscription, includes productivity enhancements voted on by Inventor users worldwide. Over 40 enhancements have been made in sketching, part and assembly modeling, design automation, drawings, interoperability, and presentations to help you get your work done faster and make great products.


Improvements to Measure Command Precision

Visual enhancement: A check mark now displays next to the default Measure Distance, Angle, Loop, and Area Precision value when you access the list for the first time in a file. Previously the check mark only displayed after you made a selection.

Inventor 2017: The checked measure precision value now persists across sessions in all files. Select a different measure precision value to change the default measure precision value. Previously when you changed the Precision value in existing files, the change was not maintained after saving, closing, and reopening the file.

Important: When you create a new template file in any new version of Inventor (for example Inventor 2017 R2, R3, 2018, and onward) the default measure precision value must be set in both Document Settings Units tab Modeling Dimension Display fields and in the Measure Precision value dialog box.

For more information, see To Measure Distance, Angle, Loop, or Area in Model.

Enhancements to Projects dialog box (not available in Inventor LT)

  • Access to the Configure Library dialog box has been simplified from two clicks to one click. The drop-down button with only one entry has been removed.
  • The Inventor project wizard, the wizard that displays when you create a project (.ipj) file, is now resizable.

Model Browser Enhancement

The visual display of model browser in all environments now displays lines in the hierarchy to:

  • Show a bigger difference between the expanded and collapsed states.
  • Help focus attention on content and features.
  • Make it easier to navigate the hierarchy.

Workflow Enhancements

  • Part/Assembly/Flat pattern sketches now maintain the properties specified in the Geometry Properties dialog box (for example, line type, scale, line color, and line weight) when exported as an AutoCAD DWG file.
  • You can elect to display or not display the mini-toolbars when you access one of the following commands: Extrude, Revolve, Fillet, Shell, Face Draft, Chamfer, and Joint. These dialog boxes have a mini-toolbar that displays alongside of the dialog box. The available options on these mini-toolbars are the same as the dialog box options. To maximize the amount of graphical space, use the new View panel User Interface panel Mini-Toolbar command to turn off the display of these mini-toolbars.For more information, see Mini-Toolbar.
  • You can now easily jump back and forth to a different point in time. Your undo/redo history now displays in the new Undo/Redo drop-down menus. Click a drop-down arrow and select from a list of actions you want to undue or redo. An Inventor® Ideas submission
