More Customers would Buy Autodesk Publisher if it had the following

Dear Autodesk,


I have had this suggestion from many prosective customers to improve Autodesk Publisher


Like many engineering companies their Inventor assemblies comprise of parts and sub-assemblies which are identified using unique part numbers. When you create 3D Acrobat files using Autodesk Publisher to validate the Inventor assemblies. Currently the resulting 3D Acrobat file has a 'Model Tree' which depicts the Inventor model's part/assembly structure and displays the part/assembly number. This is understandable but for the customers end client this makes it very difficult to identify components.


All of our customers parts and assemblies have a clear Description within their iProperties. It would be very beneficial to their workflow if they could elect to replace the part/assembly number with the Description property (perhaps only replacing if the Description is not empty to account for any content centre parts or minor parts which do not have a Description).


Can I suggest a check box in the 'Publish to PDF' dialogue box to invoke the replace.


I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi David,


Thanks for your post. This is a great opportunity for customers to leverage the free Inventor Publisher Mobile Viewer app that we provide, and that anyone is free to use. All of the iProperties that the author specifies to be shown is available to the customer viewing the file with the tap of a finger!


Hope that helps in the short-run.
