Problems creating a new Project

222 Views, 4 Replies

I'm hoping I'm being completely stupid here but I'm trying to create a new project in Inventor LT 2013 and the project editor does not seem to exist.

 

I've looked for it in 2 places; through Inventor.png -> Manage and it is not there and through the get started tab on the ribbon. It's a bit weird. Do you have to have some sort if administrative rights in order to create a project in Inventor? I'm hoping I'm missing something completely obvious.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

 

In fact, it doesn't look like it supports project functionality at all :smileysad: - the best you may be able to get is a Vault add in.

As for cost of this, I'm afraid I don't know.

It looks as though LT doesn't support project functionality without an add-in:

Oh dear.

 

Thank you Phil. Probably another stupid question; is the add-in something I can download for free, or is it like a module that I have to pay extra for?

 

Thanks

Thanks again Phil. Looks like I'm going to have to ask for an upgrade.
