Esprit CAM now supports Autodesk Inventor 2011
DP Technology has announced that its Esprit computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM) system has been certified for the Autodesk Inventor 2011 mechanical design and engineering software.
Digital Prototyping with Autodesk Inventor software enables manufacturers to digitally design, visualise and simulate how a product will work under real-world conditions before it is built, which helps to reduce costs and speed the time to market.
'A benefit of the FX technology in Esprit is that it allows Autodesk Inventor users to see the Inventor history tree, giving them associativity between Inventor and Esprit,' said Tim Gray, director of Inventor product management at Autodesk.
In Esprit, the Esprit FX feature tree supports multiple computer-aided-design (CAD) models and assemblies.
This associative technology is fully integrated into the Esprit FX feature tree, linking design features built inside the CAD system with manufacturing features built inside Esprit.
With Esprit, users are able to open native Autodesk Inventor files, thereby ensuring a seamless transition from CAD to CAM software.
DP Technology will exhibit the latest version of its CAM software at PDX-Amerimold, which takes place at the Duke Energy Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, from 11-13 May.
DP Technology will exhibit Esprit 2010 at Intermold/Die and Mold Asia 2010, scheduled for 14-17 April in Osaka, Japan.
DP Technology is to exhibit Esprit 2010 at Interphex Puerto Rico, set to take place on 4-5 March at the Puerto Rico Convention Center in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
