Sean,

Here is my updated one with 2012 included.

Admin: I split this off into it's own topic. Mark has shared his chart of what file types Inventor 2009-2011 can read and write to. Thanks Mark!

Google can export DWGs so that is your pathway. The skp file really isn't that awesome for Manufacturing Design.

Hi Mark,
I looked at your IMAGINiT Technologies White Paper
Inventor File Translators 2011-2013, and was wondering if this is an add on product from IMAGINIT, or possible in Inventor. I have Inventor 2012, and wanted to import a .jpg and export as a .dxf if this is possible. I am not that experienced with Inventor, serched the help, and still cannot find "Import .jpg"
Thanks, Larry

Good question.

No, this is standard functionality, in order for you to bring in a jpg you need to use the Insert Image command while you are inside a sketch.

You cannot export this image as vector graphics though, it is used in Inventor for decals or as a reference to draw geometry over.

Thanks Mark for your quick reply, that's the way I used to do it in AutoCAD. I thought that would be way too easy to import a .jpg and export as a .dxf. It was worth asking though.
Thanks, Larry
