Chapter 14: Exchanging Data with Other Systems

Chapter 14

Exchanging Data with Other Systems

The need to bring files created by other CAD applications into Inventor is common to many Inventor users. For instance, if you design components that others use in their designs, you might need to output files to a standard format so that others can use them with a different software package. Or, if you are a manufacturing “job shop,” you may receive many different file formats from customers that you need to bring into Inventor. Opening and translating files in Inventor 2012 has been improved with the inclusion of even more native file format translators as well as the ability to open and save neutral file formats.

In this chapter, you will learn how to:

  • Import and export geometry
  • Use Inventor file translators
