Inventor 2013 introduced new tools for overriding appearances of parts & their faces. The Adjust & Clear tools can be found by default on the Quick Access Toolbar, they simplify the management of Appearances at the model level. Some of you may already be aware how nice this tool is, but for those who don’t check out the video below.
About The Author
Hey Guys, cheers for checking out DesignAndMotion.net. First things first, I'm a Proud Cornishman living in the 'winterless' north of New Zealand way down in the southern Pacific. I'm currently a Manufacturing Technical Specialist for Autodesk VAR CADPRO Systems, based in Auckland, New Zealand. If you want to know more about my professional background, I keep that up to date on my Linked In Profile. Although I wouldn't be surprised if you thought otherwise, I do have a life outside of Design, Autodesk Software, CAM, blogging and twitter. I have a beautiful, tolerant and smart Wife, a very clever 11 year old daughter, and a troublesome 2 year old son. I'm a complete Formula One nut but I'm interested in all forms of petroleum based sport (including NASCAR, sometimes), I used to be an excellent Skier however living in a sub tropical area of the world and loving food too much has made me quite rusty. I've also lived in France for a number of years, along with spending a lot of time there as a child with my parents and siblings, which naturally resulted in a love for the place and most things French. I used to be a fluent speaker of the beautiful language, the same can't be said any more, however, I have no doubt the rot would be reversed after spending a couple of months there again in the future. Fortunately for my wife, my love of food is backed up by a love of cooking, I've cooked since I was 6 years old but have always hated the cleaning up afterwards. My favourite thing to cook these days since I'm a long way from Cornwall, is a good ol' Cornish Pasty! I'm also very fond of travelling, preferably to go on holiday though. I've been fortunate enough to visit a number of countries around the world and hope that will continue in the future. Anyway I reckon that's enough about me, I hope the content I post on this blog will speak for itself. If you like you can follow me on twitter where I bang on about all sorts of stuff!
