What’s new for Inventor 2019.2
nventor 2019 is built for today’s engineering and design professional. Inventor customers from around the world continue to provide feedback and drive enhancements to the Inventor 2019 experience. This release marks a continued focus on improved performance, automation, and core modeling workflows that enable professional-grade mechanical engineering design. Inventor 2019 also connects to the

The Inventor 2019.2 release contains multiple customer requested enhancements. In addition, this release contains several quality improvements and you can access the 2019.2 update from your Autodesk Account.

Frame Generator contains the following performance and productivity improvements:

  • Application Options: The File tab has a new File Naming Defaults section for frame generator. In the File Naming Defaults dialog, click the Add Attribute drop-lists to configure your naming scheme.
  • Miter: The option to Select Multiple Frame Members is added to the dialog. Enable the option to miter multiple members at the same time.
  • Notch: The option to Select Multiple Frame Members is added to the dialog. Enable the option to include multiple members in the same operation.
  • Change: New selection and editing behaviour is introduced to the Change command. In previous releases, you could not select or edit the attributes of reused components. You can now select reused members of any group to modify the distance and rotation angle values. All group members participate in a size or family change.

The Advanced Search and Basic tab categories are now located in the Quick Search pane in the Content Center Editor.
You can now save a Content Center search query when the search results are displayed. The search query saves to the active search category. The name of search is the searched values. To rename the saved search, click the name in the browser.

Tube & Pipe Authoring
You can now author a part with up to 30 connections. Previously, the maximum was 10.


A checkbox, Detailed Trace, is added to the iLogic Rule Editor dialog box and to the Advanced iLogic Configuration dialog box. When selected, log messages are automatically generated when running a rule at the Trace level. This setting controls the value of the API property iLogicVb.Automation.LogControl.RuleEntryExitMessageLevel.


Performance Improvement

Update performance for cut views is improved by updating only the affected parts. This improvement is most evident when updating views such as section views, but includes detail views, broken views, breakout views, and cropped views.

Use the best of Inventor and Fusion 360, together!

Using AnyCAD between Inventor and Fusion 360, PDMC subscribers can now leverage the power of Generative Design with their existing Inventor designs.

With the latest Fusion 360 update, Fusion users are now able to use AnyCAD to reference Inventor assemblies (.iam).

Spell Check
The Format Text dialog box now provides Inventor with spell check functionality. When Spell Check is turned on, a red squiggly line displays underneath the text to indicate the word is not in the active dictionary. Right-click to access options for managing the selection.

Access options for managing Spell Check and custom dictionaries from the red squiggly line’s context menu (Spell Check Settings) and from the General tab in the Application Options dialog box.
