Autodesk Inventor Extensions Developed by Micrographics
BOM Tools for Inventor is used to export Autodesk Inventor’s Bill of Materials to Excel, including each part’s thumbnail or image as listed in the BOM. Other properties like Part Number, Description, and Material etc. are also included and exported to the Excel file. Custom iProperty data can be exported along with a host of other non-standard properties listed below:
“DXF Exporter” for “Autodesk Inventor” is a sheet metal processing application for Inventor. Its main function is to scan, detect and batch export all sheet metal part flat patterns in the specified assembly. Sheet metal flat patterns are exported to the DXF format. Sheet metal model info can also be exported to STEP format and support both the Folded and Flat pattern model information.
Before exporting you can use the grid to find and filter the components to get an exact list of items to export.
iProperties like Part Number, Description, Material, Qty, Thickness etc. can be exported as text inside the DXF file or as part of the filename. A PDF file with bend instructions can automatically be generated containing a snapshot of the flat pattern with bend information. On page two of the PDF, a view of the folded model can be included.
DXF Exporter makes processing your design for CNC cutting easy.
With AutoDRAW you can automatically create drawings for Autodesk Inventor parts and assemblies based on predefined view layouts. You can set up any number of View Layouts and they can be assigned to different model types or categories so that the drawings are created specifically the way you want.
AutoDRAW is not just a drawing creator but its also a drawing manager. Once you have scanned the assembly, it will be clear to you which models do not have drawings created yet or if the existing drawings are outdated. From there you can generate / update the drawings easily. AutoDRAW also has the ability to insert QR codes onto your drawings. You can configure the content of the QR codes. Reference tables are also useful to add to your model drawings as it makes it clear where the model is used or referenced. Very useful for tracking and tracing. Once everything is ready AutoDRAW can help process the design by exporting or printing your files.
As part of the Post-Processing functions built into AutoDRAW, you can export models and drawings to the following formats: PDF (individual or combined into one PDF), DWG, DXF, STEP and DWFx. Before exporting you have full control over file naming and various properties can be used to automatically name the exported files as they are created.
AutoDRAW can now also create a single Sheet Metal flat pattern drawing for CNC / cutting processes.
Duct Pro is an add-on application for Autodesk Inventor. It automates the creation of standard Sheet Metal duct components like “Square to Round”, “Lobster Bend”, “Y-Transition”, “Branch” components and so many more. It assists the designer to put complex “heavy gauge” sheet metal duct assemblies together in less time.
All Duct Pro models have flat patterns which can be exported in batch to save even more time with processing the designs. DXF Exporter for Inventor can be used with your Duct Pro assemblies for this purpose.
InventorBench HD is the new version of the previous, very popular, benchmark application for Inventor. As with the previous version, this application runs a bunch of benchmark tests on your system using Inventor. The tests include sketching, part modelling, assembly modelling, drawing creation, animation, graphics tests, file export tests of PDF and STEP files.
In the end, you are presented with a results page and a score of how well your PC did. This will give you a very good indication of how fast your PC is using Autodesk Inventor. You can also upload your results to an online leader board to see how well you did against other people/systems around the world.
The “Tab and Slot” preview for Autodesk Inventor is an add-in that allows for easy tab and slot creation on plate and tube models. Any uniformly thick parts can be used to create tabs and slots for.
Further to that, “centre drilled” and “coincident” or “dog-bone” recess fillets can be added automatically to the Tabs or Slots or both. The Tab and Slot features are created as legitimate part features and can be modified or deleted as if it was created manually. The add-in supports Metric (mm) and Imperial (inch) units.
