Autodesk Inventor / Vault Updates (2016)

Time to change the oil on your applications? It’s worth keeping an eye on the latest Inventor / Vault Updates that are released for your products.

We’ve had a few cases recently of users reporting the following issues:

  • New Copy Design (Vault 2016) – Part number property not updating (and other property issues) when performing Copy Design.
  • Frame Generator (Inventor 2016) – Frame member description not being updated when changing member

Both of these have been resolved/improved in recent Service Packs and updates. The reason for the “improved” status is that there may still be some fringe cases that cause issues with the Copy Design property updates, but most of the cases we know about have been resolved.

You can get the updates here:

Update 1 for Inventor 2016 Service Pack 2

Cumulative Hotfix 1 for Autodesk Vault 2016 Service Pack 1

Please note, that Vault hotfixes and updates should not be applied unless you know exactly what you are doing. If you don’t administer the Vault system at your workplace, forward this post on to your IT department. All clients and the server have to have the updates applied at the same time. Alternatively, you can engage us to do this work for you.

If you have moved to the 2017 products, then you should find that those issues don’t affect you, but if that’s not the case, we’d like to know about it.

The 2017 products have been out for a while now, and feedback has been good. If you’d like to take advantage of the new functionality, then we can help with that.

Perhaps you haven’t even seen what’s new in the 2017 products. If that’s the case, then you might want to take a look at these links:

Inventor 2017 “What’s New?”

Vault 2017 “What’s New?”

AutoCAD 2017 “What’s New?”

Right, time for a coffee while those Inventor / Vault updates install.
