Best Practices for Sharing Data Between CAD Applications

Keith Doran

Are translation errors or geometry repairs taking up too much of your time? The product development process involves collaboration between multiple teams, often with data shared from various software applications. Reduce frustration and improve collaboration with robust CAD interoperability.

In this presentation, we discuss some of the concerns related to file translation, the functional differences within the translation tools within Inventor, as well as a brief demonstration of the Navisworks® tool for reading data across multiple design platforms.

Topics covered:

  • A rundown of the AnyCAD tool and how it works with 3rd Party software and neutral format files
  • Differences between importing and referencing files
  • Process for editing imported files, as well as converting them to sheet metal
  • Navisworks and how it can assist in viewing large-scale designs
