Product Design Suite Addition

Status: Under Review
by *Expert Elite* on ‎11-27-2012 05:24 PM

I would like Autodesk to seriously consider adding Autocad P&ID to Product Design Suite to round out the package for skid mounted Routed Systems design industries.  Industries such as mine require the use of Inventor Routed Systems, Autocad Electrical AND Autocad P&ID.  Currently Product Design Suite and/or Plant Design Suite only include 2 of the 3.  I think either one or the other suites should include all 3 for a more fully rounded package.  Mentioned this to the Product Manager at AU2012, and putting the ide here was his suggestion... so lets kudo this sucker up and get it rolled into the 2014 packges.  :smileyvery-happy:

Hi cbenner and tahdesign - Thanks for your feedback! I'd like to move this suggestion to our Product Design Suite IdeaStation, so we can consider the input in context there. Also, would you be willing to have a short phone conversation with me, so I can better understand the kind of applications you're working on? I'll send you a private message with this request as well. Thanks, Janna Janna Spicer Product Manager, PrDS

Hi,

 

we use VaultPro 2014 and we still have the issue, that only in the Vaultbrowser the fields from Vault are available to show (like eg. description or materialnumber).

Autodesk Inventor Professional 2014 - [SCE10122103.png

 

 

In the Modelbrowser it is not available (look at the lower screenshot). I miss these functions in the vault browser!

My idea is to merge this to browsers together, so you do not need to change every time between these two.

Or to make all features available in Vault browser

I want Inventor Fusion to come back

As there is not an ideastation for Autocad, I write this here. I want Inventor Fusion to come again with Autocad. Very useful tool to edit solids and do some other things.

Hi fprico, Have you tried the new freeform and direct edit tools included with Inventor 2015? There are tons of improvements, which might already cover what you're looking for. You can get a free trial version here: http://www.autodesk.com/products/autodesk-inventor-family/free-trial Let me know your thoughts! -Janna

Customise or consolidate

Status: Future Consideration
by Distinguished Contributor O.Maille on ‎04-23-2013 09:50 AM

I just reinstalled the infrastructure design suite premium following a fresh install of windows. As I use a SSD as my primary drive I decided to install the programs to my secondary drive, the result was a loss of 14.4 GB from primary and 17.7 GB from secondary drive. Assuming the building design suite will be the same size that's 60GB for drawing software. That is bad enough but I know from previous cleanups of autodesk installs a large portion of that is duplicate content, given the array of programs included in the suites can shared libraries not be utilised more effeiently? Why is 14.4GB of content on a drive where the programs are not installed? Essentially there must be huge potential to streamline the suite to deliver a more joined up approach.

 

The alternative is to keep having to jump between multiple programs on one machine to get anything done meaning massive CPU and RAM requirements as we have at the moment. The only advantage to this setup is that there should be potential for customised design suites?

For example I do not need visualisation programs yet >50% of the suite is for vis (navis, 3ds, IW...), I do need design software but most of it is either in the ultimate suite or not maintained. I would prefer a suite with; Robot, SSA, C3D, M3D, RA and forget about the rest OR allow me to hire somebody to mess around with all the visual stuff on another PC to see if there is any value in it.

 

The programs and plugins could  be easily tiered to allow people pay for a set number of apps from each tier this would not only give the client a better product Autodesk might learn what apps are pointless

Hello O. Maille, This is the Idea Station for Product Design Suite, but I think your point is still valid in this context. We are looking at ways to make the suites more valuable to our customers, and your suggestion is an interesting one. We'll include this in the input for future product and suite planning. Thanks! Janna Spicer, Product Manager for Product Design Suite

Why can't all file be DWG?

Status: Comments Requested
by Active Contributor djovica30 on ‎11-26-2013 09:07 PM

Have all files DWG and have interoperability betwwen suite programs?

Status: Comments Requested
Hi djovica30, DWG is a drawing file type, and is valid for most of the products in the Suite. Are there any specific workflows you are interested in using DWG, for which you haven't been successful? Thanks, Janna Spicer, Product Design Suite Product Manager

Revit for Product Desgn Suite

Status: New Idea
by Contributor Hyncharas on ‎07-29-2013 08:14 AM

I know it sounds odd, but suppose you are designing a new product for a business, and you don't have Building/Factory Design Suite.  Without it you can't import the model into a simulated environment, unless you use simply 3ds Max or Maya.

 

Traditionally I use LumenRT 4 Studio by E-On Software to demonstrate how a product may benefit a workplace, or work in conjunction with another product.  This incorporates a Revit plug-in so I can just drop the object into a 3d visualisation...

 

It would be great if Revit or a new, limited scope of the software was part of PDS.
