Autodesk Exchange App Store - New Apps for Subscription Customers

Autodesk has added 2 new apps to the Inventor Exchange App Store. The only thing, they are only available for Subscription customers only. Both of these Apps are compatible with Inventor 2013 and Inventor 2014. Link to App Store

The first one is Mesh Enabler:
The Mesh Enabler application converts mesh features to solid base features or surface features. This function can be applied to individual or multi-selected mesh features or mesh feature folders.

After installing Mesh Enabler, right click on one or more imported mesh features of interest, and convert them into Base features (solids, surfaces, or composites) through a new context menu command. The graphical mesh data is converted into B-Rep Model data that can be used similar to imported solids and surfaces.

The second one is Feature Recognition:

The Feature Recognition application converts neutral 3D CAD models, such as STEP, SAT, or IGES solids, into full-featured Autodesk Inventor models. Feature mapping could be executed automatically or interactively as needed to maintain design intent.
