Never install a new version of Inventor until a service pack is released, unless you absolutely have to.


Now what if everyone had that attitude?......:smileyhappy:

Hi.

The problem is, if no one installs a new release until the first update is released, there will never be any input to ADSK. And then it´s not going to be any updates due the lack of input to ADSK from users. :smileysurprised:

A hotfix was released today to address the issues related to using Inventor with Vault. it can be downloaded from :

 

http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=19384851&linkID=9261341

 

karthur1 - many of your crashes seem to be related to this. I would encourage all Inventor-vault users to install this.

 

For those of you that use 3D Connexion devices, the fix for that issue is now looking to be released at the end of this week, or early next.

 

Thanks,
Chris

Not quite right, I think.  A certain amount of feedback/bug fixing will inevitably come to light only through use and that is fine; however, I feel that Autodesk has overly burdened the users with underdeveloped releases.  As such, I will not update until a service pack is released because I do not want to moonlight as an Autodesk QA engineer, pro-bono, while trying to perform my real job.  If I could be confident that the new revision wouldn't grind my work to a halt I might be willing to chip-in (again).  The onus is on Autodesk to release a stable, professional-grade platform.  We have our own work to do.  If I purchase a tool that breaks frequently, I stop buying that tool.  If I have to keep repairing an inexpensive tool it becomes expensive.  Autodesk isn't doing enough QA, in my opinion, and the new version are too buggy to be adopted upon release.  The balance isn't quite right.

Hello,

A significant proportion of my crashes happen after I highlight a feature, a sketch etc and twist the spacemouse one way or another, is the hotfix for 3DConnexion devices going to address this?

 

It is very frustrating to be working with IV at the moment. :smileymad:

 

My crash reports are coming in under dave.streets.

 

Thanks

 

Scott

I had to put mine on top of my tower to keep my hand off of it. As crippled and naked as I feel without it, it's better then crashing every 2 minutes.

 

I've been at work for 3 hours and I lost count of how many times IV crashed already (with the space ball on the tower not being touched), so I know all about being frustrated with Inventor!

 

To clarify my earlier post, I'm asking about the space ball hotfix. The vault problem doesn't apply to me.

In my particular, the crashes is occurring when I highlights any part or subassembly. I just click in the part and the IV is to closed. I tried to use this hotfix for Vault but it didn't work out and I didn't use the spaceball.

I have to agree with the comment about feeling crippled without the space mouse.  Inventor's built in rotate functionality is almost completely useless.  It's very unfortunate that the last two releases (2012 and 2013) have had significant bugs related to using a space mouse.
