I was trying to show another user the Edit in Fusion feature in Inventor 2012 but she doesn't have that ribbon panel. We went into the Part tab in Application Options and Inventor Fusion was selected to Edit Base Solids. We even unselected it, applied it, closed the options and then selected it again. But still there is no Fusion panel under the Model tab when editing a part. Yes, it's installed on her machine. We checked.
The only difference is that she's also installed the 2013 suite, as well. I have the Fusion panel and have not installed any 2013 apps.
Try right clicking somewhere in the browser.
Do you get an option to edit in Fusion?
No. She cannot access the Fusion feature in any way, shape, or form (no pun intended).
I was thinking it was because it was a solid created from an imported surface, but I had an empty part open on my machine and at least the panel was there, it was just greyed out.
I had her try right-clicking in the empty area of the ribbon to make sure the panel wasn't just turned off, but the option just isn't there.
It's not available / doesn't show up in the Add-In Manager, either ( I missed that part of your post, initially).
Show a screen shot of your Add-in Manager.
Does she have Fusion 2012 or 2013 installed? If you only have 2013 in there then it will not show up in 2012. Fusion integration is version specific.
She has Fusion 2012. We checked that.
We did not check specifically to see if Fusion 2013 was installed, but she did do a full install on Product Design Suite Premium 2013, so it should be.
As mentioned above, make sure that you have the same version of Fusion and Inventor (2013 for both). I have PrDS Ultimate 2013 installed and it works for me. If possible, try an uninstall then reinstall of Fusion. The add-ins install with Fusion if it detects that Inventor is installed.
You might also try the Inventor Fusion discussion groups too.
I think we're going to let it go. It was a one-time occurence where she could have either edited a simple imported part in Fusion or re-modeled it. It was faster to remodel, in this case, than to try to re-install software. Besides, we should be switching to 2013 soon. Thanks.
