Improve Inventor export for certain models with patterns

For models with large patterns the Inventor export will not work or take days, so the only way to work "efficiently" is to export/import *.sat-files.

Hi Marco - any example models you can share?

Hey Marco - I received your email with the sample file and am seeing behavior similar to what you described. We'll take a deeper look into this. Thanks.

As a workaround for some of these you can now load the file directly in to CFD (not push from Inventor but Pull from CFD)

File - New and opint to the inventor geometry. On some models where I have seen similar behavior to what you describe with launching, opening direct is faster and maintains associativity vs exporting to sat
