Digitally signed app



screenGrab can be used with Inventor to simplify image capture of the entire Inventor application window, the graphics view of documents open within Autodesk® Inventor®, or parts of the graphics screen.


You can also remap the background to white and the foreground to black, and convert the entire image to greyscale, as well as sending the captured image directly to a printer.

  • Nice addin
    David Rose | October 12, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This works far better than the generic screen capture software we were using, great for presentations.

  • Orange, great tools
    Pascal David | October 09, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Nice, works great and time saving if you need to take a lot of screen shots.

  • improvement

    Good tool, missing choose different resolutions

  • Resolution please.
    Morten Risum Hansen | January 29, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Great tool for many tasks. An alternative to the windows screendump. BUT if a resolution setting is implemented along with a save settings, then we would really be talking. My 2 star rating is based on my personal needs. Looking forward to next version.

    Michael Lauric | January 24, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Can't be better, and it is FREE!!! Thanks, guys of Cool ORANGE, you are really cool!

  • Great tool
    Hugo Martin | December 30, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It works perfectly

  • love it
    Jason Murdoch | December 10, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Great tool, I was using lightscreen for my database images, but this is a lot more convenient & the capture file size is tiny

  • Excellent

  • Einfach zu Bedienen
    Jochen Sior | November 10, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Mein Hintergrund in Inventor ist mit Farbverlauf. Mit dem Tool kann ich ordentliche Screenshots und Ausdrucke machen, ohne den Hintergrund vorher (und nachher) umständlich von Hand zu ändern.

  • Resolution
    Claude Boudreau | October 28, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Great, but it would be very much intersting with a resolution setting parameter.

    Tomas Rychetsky | November 26, 2015

    I agree. It will be much better with resolution setting.

  • Easy as pie
    Pierre Marcotte | August 14, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I do a fair bit of catalog work, and this little nugget has saved me hours of manipulating images. If I could ask one thing, it'd be to have long crosshairs in window mode to tell me where the limits are. Other than that. I love it.

  • Simple and useful
    Gonzalo León González-Pacheco | July 13, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Works as described, no fuss, really useful

  • Great
    Reg Hasell | July 08, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Great little app. My preferred option, is the "White background" option, saves me heaps of time.

  • I'm like it
    Никита Суязов | May 18, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Very comfortable and easy.

  • Great App
    Steve West | May 13, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Just the job for screengrabs. Would be nice if it could remember last settings. It would also be useful if during window selection, you could have vertical and horizontal guidelines to see where the boundary is in relation to your view. Much easier than working with Snipping Tool.

    Hi Steve, with the new build the settings are remebered for the Inventor session. Markus

  • Same as the old "ScreenShot" app
    Kirk Arthur | April 28, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Looks like this is the same app as the old "ScreenShot" by Autodesk. Just has been renamed. Works the same. I just wish that it was not on its own ribbon tab (its getting cluttered up there). Why not put the tool on the "Tools" tab where the screenshot tool was located.

  • easy tool
    Julian Shepherd | April 27, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    easy to use could do with a pixel quality choice

  • Great little tool
    Matthew Hood | March 28, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Really useful, lightweight tool. If the GUI was a tad more polished then it'd be 5/5.
