Windows 10 Update Warning for Autodesk Users

Tips, tricks and updates from the experts at Cadassist

Autodesk are currently working on stabilising their software for the latest Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Until this is completed, we recommend avoiding this update, or rolling back if you have already installed it.

Autodesk’s stance on the Windows 10 Anniversary update. “Windows 10, for us, update 1511 and the anniversary update are just that, updates, we are currently working on stabilizing our program with this new update, but the information provided to you in the article is the official stance regarding Windows 10.”

There have been many reports of problems with Autodesk software after upgrading to Windows 10 Anniversary.

If you’ve already upgraded, we recommend rolling back to an earlier build. Windows will only allow you to do this within 10 days of installing your update. To do this, go to: Updates & Security > Recovery > Go back to an earlier build.

Idea Station, is a great way to change the products you use to suit you. Mass customisation at its best.

Tips, tricks and updates from the experts at Cadassist

I recently taught Autodesk Inventor Professional to 11 engineers from a new customer – A-Safe from Elland just a little west of Leeds.

In each of my classes, I have a quick section where I show things other than the software being trained to show the other benefits that your Autodesk account has.

One of those benefits is the Idea Station.

Now what is an Idea Station? Autodesk have a virtual wish list for many of the Autodesk products you can find the Idea stations here then navigate to the product that you have an amazing idea for or want to find out if someone else has had an idea that you can help to become a reality.
