cncKad Certified for Autodesk Inventor 2013

Metalix CAD/CAM, software for sheet metal CNC cutting and punching machines, is pleased to announce that it has been certified for Autodesk Inventor 2013 software under the Autodesk Inventor Certified Applications Program.

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 manufactured, which helps reduce cost and increase efficiency.

Such certification is only granted to a product after it has been thoroughly tested and approved by Autodesk staff. To be certified, applications must meet rigorous implementation guidelines and demonstrate the highest levels of interoperability, quality and robustness when working with Autodesk Inventor 3D mechanical design and engineering software.

“We are very pleased to be certified under Autodesk Inventor’s Certified Applications Program, as it once again demonstrates our commitment to providing our customers with advanced design solutions,” says Oded Zaideman, head of Metalix’s CAD Integration team. “cncKad’s integration with Autodesk Inventor allows quick and easy transfer of sheet metal parts directly into our CAM module, enabling our joint customers to focus on design, rather than part conversion porting.”

With this certification Metalix continues its investment in efficient design-to-production tools required by today’s sophisticated users. “Taking an entire assembly and unfolding the relevant parts into a CAM system used to require a heavy investment in engineer hours. cncKad solves this by running through the assembly, identifying the sheet metal parts and unfolding them using the designer’s production specifications,” Zaideman explained. “This means that the flattened parts are transferred into cncKad with all their manufacture-relevant data, such as material type, sheet thickness and bend radii”.
