Inventor "Labs" is a "open to public" beta testing site. There really to work out the bugs and get feed-back. It was released back in 2012. Can't say how it will work in newer versions or if all the bugs/issues have been worked out.

The supported apps page just lists 2013:

I am not sure how it will work with other versions.

The "simplification" would work better, for my company, if the resultant part model resembled the model from which it was taken.

Otherwise, for what we would use it for, we can't identify what the model is

Simplify seems like it could be a great addition! but i'm encounter an error when trying to "combine compnents" i get an error dialog stating "the operation failed" and takes me back to the original assembly.

when trying to combine components with too many "open" features, i would get the same "errror", refine the selection process i.e. dumb it down

Is anyone else having issues with Simplify working in 2014 IV? It worked flawless for us in 2013 but in 2014 the "Simplfy" ribbon tab only displays at the assembly level. The add-in is set to Automatic/Loaded so I'm not sure why it's no longer working at the part level. Anyone else having this issue?

Kenny

I believe it was only designed for IV2013. Anything on the Autodesk Labs is really "Beta Testing" that is open for the public.

Yea I knew it wasn't supported with 2014 use so that's why I'm asking if anyone has the same issues with 2014 or if it doesn't work at all for everyone. Just trying to make sure it's not something with my machine. It works as far as the assembly environment goes but doesn't work at all in the part envirmonent, so it's pretty much useless in 2014 lol.

 

I'm really hoping they bring Simplify into IV full-time or at least promote it to the Exchange site after it expires. It is light years better than trying to do the equivalent using Shrinkwrap.

Kenny

The Simplification Preview has expired. Please check Autodesk Labs for an update

07-03-2014 12:27 AM in reply to: kwilsonamerex

Nothing to say: very nice and useful tool.

 

For a few technical reasons beside the scopes of this forum, we are not yet in the condition to move on from 2013 release, but we are working on it.

We are subscribers, that means we should have support 3 releases backwards (2015 is out now, -> 2014 -> 2013 still supported).

We have developed some interesting workflows based on Inventor Simplification, and since yesterday these workflows are not possible any more (Simplification has been integrated in the upcoming releases, but has expired for 2013 on Jul 1st 2014).

 

I've been searching aroung if any hotFix/Service Pack can fix the issue, but I didn't find anything.

What shall we do in the meantime with the 2013 release??

Re: The Simplification Preview has expired. Please check Autodesk Labs for an up

As you can tell from the error message the technology preview has ended. When a technology preview ends, the technology can graduate, retire, or undergo another round of feedback via a new technology preview. In this case, the Inventor Simplification technology has graduated to Inventor 2014 and Inventor 2015..

 

Technology previews are not intended for production use. After all, they're still in the early preview stage. They are in their infancy and are not fully baked. We are realists and recognize that some customers use them at their own risk. Technology previews are like taste tests at malls. We let people take a sip of Pepsi and a sip of Coke and tell us which one they like better. Regardless of which one they prefer, we are not promising to deliver a lifetime supply of soda. Sometimes people hate the taste of both!

 

We make technology previews available via Autodesk Labs so people can give us feedback. Most customers try them on test projects. If the technology preview works for them - great. If it does not work for them, no harm/no foul, since the customers are only playing with the technology on test projects. Since technology previews have an end date that is published at the onset of the technology preview, customers try them on projects that end before the technology preview ends. Technology previews have a specific end date so no one confuses them with perpetual functionality that is associated with a product offering or subscription service. In fact, technology previews are offered for free to Subscription customers, non-Subscription customers, and educational users alike. When the previews end, I don't have a way to re-activate them. It's not part of the Labs process. I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Please don't shoot the messenger.
