Description

Description

Interoperability (noun: in-ter-op-er-a-bil-i-ty) is the ability of different information technology systems and software applications to communicate, exchange data, and use the information that has been exchanged. Inventor software provides a medium to collect, use, reuse, and exchange data of different types and from different sources. In this class, we will explore the different types of data supported by Inventor software for both import and export. We'll explore the various methods of exchange, including piggybacking on other products contained within Product Design Suite. Some of the elements examined include: DWG™ import and export; sheet metal DXF flat pattern export; AnyCAD to externally reference third-party models; PDF conversion to 2D geometry to new part within Inventor software; importation of point cloud data; to-and-from exchange in Revit software; publication to 3D PDF; sharing with A360 cloud-based collaboration service; exportation of Inventor software bill of material information for downstream applications; and importation to and from Fusion 360 software. This session features Inventor Professional, A360, and AutoCAD.
