PDF AutoSave Premium

Note for Inventor 2020-2023 users for enabling add-in!

Note for Inventor 2023 users! There is a new version for Inventor 2023 users in Autodesk Appstore.

PDF AutoSave Premium saves the copy of the Inventor drawing automatically to PDF during Save command. Unlike original PDF AutoSave, Premium version has multiple options for file naming and saving locations.

Note! PDF AutoSave Premium works only when drawing is saved after modification. So it does not make a PDF if drawing has not changed.
