AUGIworld August 2012 The truth about sharing Inventor Data
August 2012 | Filed Under: Guest Posts
The August 2012 issue of AUGIworld is out now, and this month it’s all about teamwork.
‘In the design world, collaboration has been talked about for quite a while. And though some believe collaboration remains little more than a concept, others are making it a reality in the workplace.’
The Truth about sharing Data from Autodesk Inventor
Once again I had the honour of being asked to submit an article for AUGIworld by the Manufacturing content editor John Evans (Thanks John!). With the theme of this issue being about teamwork and collaboration, I thought that it would be a good idea to talk some more about DWF.
If you’ve taken the time to digitally prototype your design with Autodesk Inventor, then you have a wealth of information available to your supply chain that may not be accessible from the paper drawings. DWF can be a great way to metaphorically roll up your entire data set (Drawings, 3D digital model and BOM) to share with your client, colleagues or subcontractors.
In the article, you will find clear instructions on how to create the equivalent of a 2D ‘Paper’ drawing set. You will find out how to export the 3D model along with the drawings, and include the BOM as well.
Finally, I show you how to upload the entire thing to Autodesk 360 to share with anyone in the world (well – anyone who has access to the internet)!
