Autodesk has released an update for Inventor 2013 namely “Update 1”. It’s a “multi-issue” fix so it includes fixes for quite a few of the niggles picked up by the users since Inventor was released.

To download please go to: Update 1

This update addresses the following issues with Inventor 2013 (all versions):

  • Updating the assembly does not clear out the update sign
  • Incorrect texture scale applied during migration
  • Responses to dialog prompts are not being remembered
  • Region and Language setting not being honored
  • Inventor Optimization not recognizing license
  • Add Hole to an existing Hole Table is not functioning
  • Missing Face-Edge connectors for Midsurface gaps that have an angle between faces
  • File New dialog does not list templates from a networked location
  • Repeated prompting on opening read-only Tube & Pipe data when “Prompt for Recomputable Updates” Save option is checked
  • Edit with Frame Generator fails when working with custom Content Center library & materials
  • Frame Generator Member parts do not honor the selected custom material
  • Content Center refresh does not refresh Content Center part material after user selects the correct material library
  • Use of custom library shows incorrect density on physical iProperties
  • Graphic slices shown on parts with singularities
  • Materials & Appearances are not being updated properly from style library
  • Appearance thumbnails from custom library are not showing the correct colors – all gray**

**After Update 1 is installed edit thumbnails in-document & copy back to the library to fully resolve.
