Design Checker for Inventor has transferred from Autodesk Labs to Autodesk Exchange Apps. The solution is a technology used to give a designer insight into the adherence of standards for the product being designed.
Live checking provides instant feedback on the adherence to company and customer standards, the company says. Design Checker can be configured to define not only what type of features are checked, but also the standards that dictate if a check passes or fails. Custom checks can also be defined.
These configurations are stored in a profile and can be separated into different work environments (Parts, Drawings, Assemblies). According to the company, this allows profiles to be created that define different checks for different product types, different customers, or any other end user variances. By changing profiles, the solution checks the models based on the rules defined in that profile.
