Inventor 2024

Here is the latest version of Inventor, which is still being developed thanks to your input. We appreciate everyone who took the time to send us their feedback and suggestions. These suggestions have helped shape over 100 enhancements in the past year.

Inventor 2024 introduces many new features and improvements that will enhance your design experience. We also understand that documentation is essential for effectively communicating projects for production. You will find improvements for 3D annotations and 2D drawings. We also recognize that performance is a priority for those working on large and complex projects. We continue our commitment to accelerating engineering processes.

General fixes

Section view

The definition of a section view remains in the representation of the project view. Section views can be easily edited or turned off by right-clicking on the view representation node.

You also have control over the preview of the end covers as you drag the section view plane. By default, it will be disabled if the assembly consists of 500 or more parts.

Previously, in Inventor Studio, the rendering resolution was 4096 x 4096 pixels. The limitation has been removed and Inventor Studio will render images up to 16K x 16K, depending on the capabilities of your graphics card.

Custom Environment Image Support

The workflow for using custom HDR and EXR images with IBL lighting styles has been greatly improved and is supported for both CPU and GPU ray tracing.

Support for IBL backgrounds

GPU ray tracing now supports IBL background rendering.

Perspective with ortho faces as the default

It is now possible to set “Perspective with Orthogonal Faces” as the default view setting in both Document Settings and Application Options.

Part modeling improvements

Parameter window

The parameters window extends the export functionality to text and logical parameters in the user parameters section. This allows parameters to be accessed elsewhere, such as iProperties, where they can be inserted as part of a live description, or simply displayed in a custom iProperties tab.

Marking function

 The marking function was introduced last year in Inventor 2023, enabling laser etching or marking of 3D models.

In version 2024, we have introduced improvements by adding a behavior section in the properties panel. In addition to the ability to engrave in three different directions, now there are two different ways of marking.

  • Project will mark all faces in its path, even if they are not coplanar.
  • We have also added the ability to wrap the character. This allows the mark to wrap around corners or be applied to curved geometry such as shafts or cylinders.

Oriented minimum bounding box option

The solid body can be extracted as an oriented minimum bounding box. In the “Options” tab of the “Derive Part”, “Extract Assembly”, and “Create Part” dialog boxes, a new option “Oriented Minimum Bounding Box” has been added. By default, the option is selected. Uncheck the checkbox to extract the body as an axis-aligned bounding box.

New finishing operation

The new Finish feature allows you to define appearances and manufacturing processes in part and assembly models. Provides rich data when applying material coatings, heat treatment, surface texture or paint color.

The function is supported by model states to preserve process variables for the 3D model.

3D annotation improvements

Model-Based Definition

Inventor 2024 introduces several new improvements for MBD:

  • When applying a linear dimension, it can now be specified as a boundary requirement.
  • We also extended the annotation scale to include 1:5.
  • When annotating a planar surface profile, you could previously specify “around”, while Inventor 2024 also added “All” to the note option.
  • Finally, in the drawing environment, we added the ability to extract 3D annotations from a part contained in an assembly file. Just go to the 3D annotation tab and select the source.

Weld symbol

There is now a weld symbol option in the annotation ribbon to add welding PMI information to designs. The dialog box is almost identical to that found in the drawing environment, allowing for great flexibility in terms of weld symbols. Of course, as always, we can bring these notes into the drawing environment.

Note that you don’t need to create a weldment assembly for this – 3D weld symbols are also supported in normal assemblies and even in multi-body part files.

And with QIF or STEP 242 we can export this information to other systems and browsers.

Drawing enhancements

Cloud revisions

Revision clouds are full-fledged Inventor objects and are no longer in the SDK. They can be added to sheets or drawing views, moved, added or removed vertices, and as with other annotation styles, formatting is managed using the style editor. Because they are sketch based, they can be edited both in the cloud and from the sketch.

Edge symbol

You can now define an edge symbol based on ISO 13715:2019. A new Edge Symbol command has been added to the Symbols panel of the Annotate tab as well as to the Drawing Style and Standards editor.

Functionality of pipes and wires

From previous versions of Inventor, it was only possible to add a 45 or 90 degree elbow to a rigid pipe. Starting with this version, it is now possible to use customized angle elbows.

Improvements to the iLogic Vault workflow

With Inventor 2024, working with Vault has never been easier. New features added to iLogic enable Inventor to automate Check Out, File Retrieval, Vault Search, and much more. Vault code snippets added to the editor make it easy to get started quickly.

Collaboration functionality with Fusion 360

Access to Manual Inspection has been added to Fusion 360 tools

From within Inventor you can send a part (.ipt) file to Fusion 360 and create manual inspection tasks.

Export flow to Fusion

If there is a change in the state of the Inventor model or design view used to export to Fusion 360 and you click “Open in Fusion 360” in the export context menu, you will receive a notification that the Inventor and Fusion 360 models are out of sync and the option to update the Fusion 360 model before opening it.
