For faster response, please consider that (in most cases) we cannot begin an investigation until we can reproduce the problem!  Investigation will go a lot faster if you are able to provide a:

  • .iv file

that reproduces the problem.

Sending test cases
Test cases should be zipped and put on the Data Exchange Platform by using links provided by your Open Inventor technical contact.

NOTE: You will not be able to "see" any files posted by other customers. This is to protect the privacy of your files and those of other customers.
