This is issue in Autodesk Inventor Professional 2012. After installing Feature Recognition x64 bit 2012, its installing successfully. But its not showing in Add-in manager and is not working. So kindly suggest me in this regard.

You may be better off posting this to the Labs email site. But in reviewing this I did notice that there are different versions of the feature recognition tool. I loaded the 2012 version and it shows in my add-ins. Another thing would be to do the installation as Local Administrator or run as Administrator

Hi.

Have you tried the feature recognition that already inside Autodesk Fusion?

I just installed on 2 32-bit machines.
On one it works - on the other - nothing?

Hey Guys,

I think I got it to work after spending a good 3 hours on it! its simple, how stupid I was not think about it sooner, all you need to do is manually register the dll file which is located under inventor 2012\bin\featurerecognition.dll through regsvr32.exe command. how? ok, start menu, run, punch in cmd and enter, then navigate to c:\program files\autodesk\inventor 2012\bin\ and then type regsvr32 featurerecognition.dll. then it should work. make sure inventor is not running when you do this.

 

trust it helps

Sincerely

Ali

@3DAli:

 

You are a real life saver! Manually registering the dll works like a charm. Many thanks!

Best Regards,

I have manually register the .DLL file and it shows up in the Add-in manager, but it does not show up under any of the tabs. How do I access the feature? Please help

I don't see any solid features in your screen capture - only a 3D sketch?

My problem is that I was sent a *IGS file, which comes in as wires, but I would like to convert it into a solid *.IPT
