Tick Tool Basic eases your workflow in Autodesk® Inventor® by saving you the steps of going into the iProperties sub-menu. Instead, it displays the relevant iProperty fields directly in the Inventor browser, to enable quick completion of these. You can fully customize the iProperties window and set it up to your needs. 

Moreover, Tick Tool Basic can generate PDF and DXF files on saving into a folder of your choice and therefore saves you time. 

Finally, Tick Tool Basic can generate part numbers quickly according to an excel sheet or pull them from your ERP system, so you always have the correct part numbers.
