As you guys know i had some problems with my inventor 2013. Luckely 2014 works with service pack 1. Now i have another problem:


on school they have 2013, and i have 2014. But I tried to open a part made in a 2014 version. Anyone ideas how to fix that? I think this program is expensive enough that they won't make different part versions :smileywink:


Hopefully u guys can help me out.







i can open parts made on 2013

there is no saving down in inventor

you can export to .stp file and open it in 2013 but you will lose the feature history

As DarrenP has posted you can't have backwards functionality. As the main kernel for the part changes with each version to allow new functionality you can't save backwards. You can only migrate forwards, bring old versions up to new versions.
