I I Cannot access the Mold Layout Tab/Ribbon in Autodesk Inventor Pro 2014. I have installed all of the Content Libraries and the Inventor Mold Metric Library is available in Content Center.  The mold design (mm).iam file is also not seen in the Templates file. I have opened mold design (mm).iam file found by searching my computer, but the Mold Layout Tab/Ribbon does not appear. I opened up an .ipt file from the Mold Library and the Mold Design Layout tab DOES NOT APPEAR. 

Please Help. How can I get the Mold Layout Tab/Ribbon in Autodesk Inventor Pro 2014 to be accessible?

You are going to have to start supplying a lot more information if you want to solve this problem.

I would be very curious why your install does not show default templates.

OS?

Screen captures?

New problem? Did it use to work?

New install, it never worked?

 

Installed with anti-virus an UAC off?

... and out of curiosity - what your assembly environment screen does look like when opening the Mold.iam  (I should say, File New, not Open).

Did you copy the template file to the correct Templates location?
Did you Open or did you File>New?


What is the path to your Templates in your active Project (*.ipj)?

Please just check in the Part environment > Environments Tab > Begin Panel > Create Mold.

 

Then you will see your Mold Layout tab

Please let me know if this helps

This did not work. I do not see any Part or "Part Environment" I have Environments tab, but under the begin Panel is only Inventor Studio and BIM exchange.
