Mastercam X6 certified for Autodesk Inventor

CNC Software Inc.’s Mastercam X6 CAD/CAM has been certified for Autodesk Inventor 2013 3D mechanical design software under the Autodesk inventor certified applications program.

To be certified, the product must meet certain guidelines and demonstrate a certain level of quality and compatibility with Autodesk Inventor software, according to CNC Software.

Digital prototyping with Autodesk Inventor software gives manufacturers the ability to digitally design, visualize and simulate how a product will work under real world conditions before it is built, which helps reduce cost and increase efficiency, the company reports.

“The flow from design to manufacture becomes easier for both Inventor and Mastercam customers, where the designer can be assured that the part designed in Inventor is precisely the part that is machined with Mastercam,” said Gary Hargreaves, director of business development for CNC Software.

Mastercam X6 has a direct add-in for Autodesk Inventor for Mastercam and Autodesk users. Mastercam Direct enables users to open a model in Mastercam while in an Inventor session, then update toolpaths to reflect changes to the model. Mastercam X6 is able to read in native Inventor files (.IPT and .IAM) for design purposes and toolpath generation.

Mastercam Direct for Inventor is available for free at www.mastercam.com.
