This feature would benefit many of our customers - with all of the performance improvements Autodesk are introducing for Publisher one of the simplest to introduce might be to allow an update of the model (from Inventor) with the option to change the faceting quality (as you can do in Showcase) this would allow the bulk of the document to be produced very quickly with a coarsely faceted model before the high quality model is brought in at the end in order to export.
Thank you for your good suggestion. That is very cool. I have logged this item into the internal issue tracking system.
