Tube & Pipe has excellent navigation tools where you can turn any angle on any axis and go any exact distance you like.


Inventor needs to simplify the awkward "Grip Snap" command to something like this for moving 3D parts around in Inventor. It's just too hard to move parts around quickly and easily :smileymad:.


We must have something as simple as this for moving things around before you get into the complex and time consuming task of applying constraints.

Inventor Publisher has a pretty nice tool also.  Very Similar.

Oops, this is now in Inventor 2014 with the 3D Move/Rotate command. Ignore post.
