Irvine, CA, August 1, 2011: MecSoft Corporation, a global leader in Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software, announced today that VisualXPORT is certified for use with Autodesk Inventor 2011 and 2012 mechanical design and engineering software under the Inventor Certified Applications Program.
“The certification of VisualXPORT gives Autodesk Inventor software users access to a family of CAM products that will help enhance their manufacturing processes,” said Carl White, director of digital design product management at Autodesk. “Job shops and custom manufacturers that use Autodesk Inventor look forward to a seamless connection to VisualMILL through VisualXPORT.”
Autodesk Inventor is the foundation of the Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping. It produces an accurate 3D model that enables users to validate the form, fit and function of a design before physically building it. With Autodesk Inventor, users can safely integrate AutoCAD and 3D data into a single digital model to create a digital prototype of the final product, reducing the number of costly physical prototypes.
“MecSoft is pleased that VisualXPORT has received certification for Autodesk Inventor,” says Jerry Hiller, Director of International Sales. “We are fully committed to offering seamlessly integrated CAM solutions for the top CAD solutions, to our VisualMILL users globally. This certification indicates VisualXPORT has reached the highest levels of quality and interoperability when working with Autodesk Inventor software.”
VisualXPORT for Inventor is a direct, in-window plug-in for Autodesk’s Inventor 3D mechanical design software, allowing users to transfer Inventor geometry directly to VisualMILL without having to go through a neutral format such as STEP or IGES. The solution not only provides error free data transfer between the two programs but also an enhanced workflow for companies that design in Inventor and use VisualMILL in their manufacturing process. With VisualXPORT for Inventor, users can export: 2D & 3D Sketches (curves), Solids, and Surface data from Inventor. It is compatible with Autodesk Inventor 2011 and 2012, 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
