Delcam’s PartMaker receives Autodesk 2011 Certification
Delcam has announced that the latest release of its PartMaker suite of CAM products for turn-mill centres and Swiss-type lathes has been certified for use with Autodesk’s Inventor 2011 solid modelling design system by the Autodesk Inventor Certified Applications Program. To attain this certification, the PartMaker suite of products met certain criteria and demonstrated a high level interoperability with Autodesk Inventor 2011. The certification is granted by Autodesk only after the product has been approved after a rigorous testing process.
"Staying current and fully compatible with leading 3D CAD systems like Autodesk Inventor is a cornerstone of the ongoing software development effort at PartMaker,” according to PartMaker Division President, Hanan Fishman. "Many PartMaker users use Autodesk Inventor for 3D design , while many more members of the PartMaker user community receive files from customers who use Autodesk Inventor. Maintaining this interoperability is a mission critical service we provide our users.”
PartMaker users can directly import Autodesk Inventor files in their native *.IPT format. 2D files are imported via a *.DXF interface.
