Digitally signed app



This app allows users to very quickly add drawing views for all sub-components of an assembly. Instead of the tedious process of browsing for the correct file on the hard drive, QuickViews presents the user with a hierarchical list of all unique sub-components of the assembly with previews of each component and a column indicating which sheets the component drawing is located. Adding a view is simply a matter of double-clicking and placing it!


QuickViews is also distributed as part of Manufacturing, Symetri's suite of effective tools that help create good working practices, standardizations and reduce errors in the construction phase.

  • Absolutely the best App for Inventor
    Greg Mcleod | August 16, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Should be embedded in the Inventor software.

    Bryon Grimsley | November 06, 2023

    I agree with you. Wish they would keep it up to date.

    Great App, Please update for Inventor 2024 or help on how to setup.!

  • Thank you
    Ravitej Turaga | June 26, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Thank you for the App .. This is quite useful since extracting views for each and every part is quite difficult to open each and every part. Would it be possible to include Item number in the display then it will be quite helpful, i believe... Thank you Again.

  • Works very good
    Jesse Rop | June 23, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Very good and stable plugin. 
    Small suggestion for improvement: Place the views offset to each other instead of stacking them. So it's easier to place lots of views in order of part number.

    Martin Jeřábek | December 30, 2022 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I love this add-in. Is there any chance, that you will change in future release how it works with BOM. That it will work with actual Part Number instead of File Name? Thanks anyway

    First of all, I would like to thank you.

    I've been using your app well,

    It became unavailable while upgrading the inventor version to 2023.

    Please update the app.

    Thank you.

  • Strange problem
    Roland Mozes | May 13, 2022 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I used it a lot of time, but one day it was not working anymore. Im working with windows 10 and I don't know what should be the problem. I open it but no shows nothing. I see the ikon just in the botton bar.

    David Hatlehol Gjelsten | January 06, 2023

    I get the same issue as this. The addin is installed, set to ‘Loaded’ in the addins, and the icon appears on my ribbon. However when I open quick views while inside a drawing, an empty instance of Quick Views launches and nothing happens after. I’m on Windows 11, Inventor 2020. I was using Quick Views just fine on this exact setup a month ago. Any ideas on how to solve this? Things I’ve tried: - Made sure folders for Quick Views and the dll files are not ‘Read only’. - Uninstalled and installed Quick Views again (like 10 times) - Uninstalled Inventor 2020, then re-installed Quick views - Check which Quick Views version is loading: The dll from Inventor 2022 is loaded (but my Inventor is 2020).

  • does not load in Inventor Pro 2021.1.2
    tee fix | February 28, 2021 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Unfortunately this addon does not load in Inventor Pro 2021.1.2. When I start a drawing the status line displays loading Quick Views, but it is not available on the ribbon...

    At the Addin Manager it is marked as loaded though...


    Any suggestions what I'm doing wrong?
    Thank you


    Andrew Scallon | July 11, 2022

    Be sure to make sure it is loading. "After installation of the Mesh Enabler tool, load the Add-In (Go to Tools ribbon, select Add-in button and load the application)."

    Unfortenately, I am not able to LOAD this into Inventor Pro 2021. It is installed - version 1.0.12 but in Autodesk App Manager it says - "Status - Update Available". When I click on update, it shows only this webpage and it says that 1.0.12 is last version. When I click - "Add-Ins" ... "load automatically" is turned on... during program opening it stuck on "loading quickviews" and after 1-2 minutes it ends and result is that it is just UNLOADED... so I cant see button in "place views"... thank you

    Graham Riddell | May 18, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I saw this previewed on TFI about 2 years ago and have just downloaded the update for 2021. What a fantastic free app, unbelievable. So simple and yet so good. Great work guys, love it!

    UPDATE; Will we be getting a 2022 update? I contacted technical help who told me that they would get back to me. However, no reply. I really miss this add on in my workflow. 

    UPDATE; 2022 Release! Thank you. 

  • Excellent App
    Bryon Grimsley | April 03, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    We use it daily for fbarication drawings. It really speeds the detailing process up. 

    When will the 2021 verion be available? 

    Mattias Lanzén (Publisher) | April 07, 2020

    We have just started the developing and hoping our testing goes well so we can release in a week or two

    This looks Really Useful so I've downloaded it. I'll install it later Today.    Thank you.


  • Time Saver
    John Tyler | October 22, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I have just started using this add-in, but can see already that it is going to save me a lot of time on fabrication drawings.  It makes it very quick to place views of parts from an assembly.


    We do not typically use multisheet drawings, so I don't have a need for (and therefore haven't tried) the parts list sheet number listing.  I am just using the view placing functionality.


    I have run into one minor issue, which is very annoying for my intended purpose.  Typically I will be using this to place the views of plates and other members for welded structures.  Not all of these parts need to be detailed (for example, a simple rectangular plate), because they are fully described in the parts list.  The preview thumbnail in the QuickViews dialog box would typically be all I need to recognize which parts need a view and which ones don't.


    However, the preview images often fail to load for me.  Switching back and forth between different selected parts will eventually cause it to load.  This is annoying, but it still gets the job done faster than my previous method of individually opening up each part file to check it for the need to detail and then placing the view if required.

  • Thanks

  • Just missing One thing
    Steven Desilets | June 01, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Love this app.  It is missing a key item i believe. When selecting the subcomponents, i wish there was a way to see what Item number the component is. To go even further, it would be nice to be able to add additional columns to sort by in the part selection screen.  In a large assembly, it can be confusing what items you want views of and which you do not.

  • Greatness!
    Mauricio Hernandez | April 23, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    You have read my mind, glad to find this app on time, thank you!

  • Good add-in, suggestion follows
    Matthew Jordan | December 19, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This add-in is brilliant.  One thing that would make it earier to use is the ability to hide content center parts from the list.

  • Wonderful Documentation...
    Mike Jones | December 14, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    but the program will not activate the dialog while we are in a .DWG file or an .IDW file.  The help dialog will appear, but the Quickviews dialog never appears.

  • yep

    Very usefull, thank you

  • Assembly Reference
    Torbjörn Sallander | November 13, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I very much would like an option there you can make the view from the .iam file with only the selected structure visible. This way the drawing keeps refering to only one model file.

  • Custom columns soon please?
    Nolan Stewart | July 03, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Great app. Would be nice to be able to customize columns as per some of the below comments. We don't seem to be getting any response on this. Is it likely to happen?

  • Just what i need
    Frank Penrose | January 12, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    INV 2018. Much nicer than the traditional method of placing view. Would love it had custom columns as others had mentioned. Good work

  • Simple fix to vastly improve the app
    Mark Wearmouth | June 28, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

  • Good App
    Kirk Arthur | June 27, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Good app for placing detail views on the idw. Keeps from having to browse and find the file. I would like to be able to customize the columns rather than just being stuck with the "Description" column. Nice that it shows which sheet has the detail view.

    I have pushed clients to use this app in the past and they have loved it. However, one of them has moved to the 2017 version of Inventor and it is not supported for 2017. Are you going to be releasing a new version?

    Tomasz Malinowski | June 20, 2016

    Hi You can force the 1.0.5 version to work with 2017 (if you still have it installed together with Inventor 2016), just add 1 to <SupportedSoftwareVersionLessThan> value in xml-like file CADQ.QuickViews.Inventor.addin - it was placed on my computer in the C:\\ProgramData\\Autodesk\\ApplicationPlugins\\CadQualityEuropeAB_QuickViews.bundle\\Contents\\ folder just tested and seems to work

  • Nice but seems problematic with details level
    Guillaume MASSART | May 21, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Pretty good software that help a lot escpecially with multiple pages drawings. I have a strange behavior, we use "details level" (don't know if in english that's the term) to have light models and we use this too for the drawing views (to hide a door for example). With these details level I have "file missing" problem in the list and even sometimes nothing happen when I try to start the quickviews management.

  • Custom Columns?
    Duane Bunnell | May 05, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Very useful for multiple sheets of sheet metal details, but would be even better if I had the ability to see part numbers and filter out purchased components & hardware. Maybe in a paid version?

  • 2016 soon ?
