Inventor Publisher Preview

  1. 1. Inventor Publisher Technology Preview Debuts on Autodesk Labs User-Friendly Technology Makes It Easy to Create and Publish Compelling 3D Product Documentation Autodesk today announced the new Autodesk Inventor Publisher Technology Preview is available on Autodesk Labs. The Inventor Publisher technology is easy-to-use software for creating interactive, 3D product documentation that delivers clear and comprehensive technical instructions. Historically, product documentation has been dominated by 2D manuals that are text-heavy and confusing. Inventor Publisher Technology Preview improves the user experience by producing documentation such as assembly instructions and operating procedures or repair and maintenance guides that are 3D, highly visual and easy to understand. With Inventor Publisher Technology Preview, product manufacturers can easily create highly detailed technical illustrations and animations without any prior animation experience. Tools specifically designed for creating documentation work directly with the digital CAD data to automatically create exploded views and view sequences or generate full-motion animations illustrating a process from multiple viewpoints. “Inventor Publisher helps us to more clearly communicate complex instructions with 3D and impressive animation,” said John Cay, project design engineer at ContiTech Beattie Ltd., a world leading supplier of specialist hoses and fluid handling systems for the international oil and gas industry. “That helps us create a better customer experience and reduces the chances of operator error.” Once authored, documentation can be published in a variety of formats including SWF, AVI, DWF, PPT, PDF, and other common image file types. This documentation can then be made available on the web or delivered electronically via email. “We need our technical documentation to be accessible online, on paper, and on our factory floor monitors,” said Ben Toms, senior design engineer at DRS Data Services Ltd., a global leader in scanning, recognition and processing products for large volume projects such as a national census or voter registration. “With Inventor Publisher, we can quickly and easily create maintainable interactive documentation that is freely available through all these platforms for use by our technical staff, field service engineers, distributors, and end users, all within a single software solution.” Inventor Publisher Technology Preview benefits manufacturers as well as end users. Part of the Autodesk Solution for Digital Prototyping, Inventor Publisher provides the ability to produce documentation directly from the digital prototype, reducing rework and inefficiencies. And because documentation can be developed concurrently with the design process, companies can start creating their product documentation sooner — allowing for faster time to market. “Product documentation should not be an afterthought, and Inventor Publisher makes it easy for companies to give it the attention it deserves,” said Samir Hanna, vice president of Digital Concept, Manufacturing Industry Group at Autodesk. “By creating highly sophisticated, interactive 3D documentation, manufacturers are better able to distinguish themselves in the marketplace and create a better experience for their customers.” Autodesk is offering the free* download of Inventor Publisher Technology Preview starting December 1, 2009.
