I try to export an Inventor part with connection point throught the Adsk format to AutoCAD MEP.
Both software are 2010 version.
" BEFORE APPLYING YOUR PATCH "
In Inventor, I use the command "Environment->AEC exchange->Export Building Component" (hope the command are correctly translated, my menu is in french).
The enclosed adsk file is generated.
When I try to import the adsk file into AutoCAD MEP, it crash with a "fatal error: memory can't be read"
To do this, I use the command "Insert->Building Component (from "Content" Group)".
After selecting the file, a dialog appears asking me what I want to do with the file (Add as Multi-View Part, Multi-View Block or simple Block). The error occurs whatever the choice I do.
"AFTER INSTALLING THE PATCH"
I generated a new adsk file (enclosed).
Now When I try to insert it into AutoCAD MEP, the software doesn't crash, but I receive the following error (always after the dialog asking me what i want to do with the file) :
"The file "...adsk" is not a valid Autodesk exchange file"
Now we have tried with the hotfix installed and it works fine! I've tryed Revit Architecture and it imports the ADSK file without problems.
I attach 2 simple ADSK test files that works for me in Revit so you can try if you like.
We have just released a Hotfix to clear up this issue. If you are saving an ADSK file from AEC Exchange and try to open it in Revit or AutoCAD Architecture you will get an error unless you install this Hotfix.
