For those who participated in the beta testing using the pre-release product to provide feedback and improve the quality, I give you a big THANK YOU and shower you in sparkling CNC metal shavings of gratitude for your participation and living on the bleeding toolpath. Please ensure to install the final released version. An issue was identified in the beta versions which causes Inventor to crash on start-up. Installing the release version will automatically will resolve this. This goes for any beta, always uninstall and start fresh with the final release of a product to avoid conflicts or time out of the beta software.
For those that use HSMWorks CAM solutions for SolidWorks fear not we are continuing to support and develop that product.
