Sharing your Autodesk Inventor Publisher Mobile Files

April 12, 2013 By Craig Bashor Leave a comment

Here at Advanced Solutions, I just recently taught our Autodesk Inventor Publisher Essentials class and a student asked me how he would share this IPM (Inventor Publisher Mobile) file to a specific customer.

Well the solution is very simple and starts by creating your Autodesk Inventor Publisher document. Then next step is to create the Inventor Publisher Mobile file. This is done by going to the Publish drop-down and selecting Mobile option.

Next in the Mobile dialog, ensure your Title and Description is filled out and select the Save Local option.
