    Provides Open CASCADE-based applications with the capability of reading and manipulating native data from Inventor.
    This Inventor data exchange solution works as an Open CASCADE Technology Plug-in. It allows importing BRep data (geometrical and topological data) alone or in assemblies (defined with components as located parts). IPT and IAM files can be converted.

    * Reading geometry and topology information from Inventor.

    Geometrical and topological native Inventor files can be converted to Open CASCADE Technology shapes.
    Translation calls on the Shape Healing function to produce data which meet the consistency requirements of Open CASCADE Technology. The plug-in processes an IPT or IAM file of Inventor. Data can be exchanged by calling these interface library functions.
    Assemblies defined in Inventor, made of components defined as located parts or other assemblies (for assemblies at several levels), are converted to compound shapes of Open CASCADE Technology, reflecting the initial data sharing of parts.

    This translator provides native and direct exchange of Inventor data with Open CASCADE-based applications and can considerably extend the scope and increase the quality and speed of translation. It meets the growing needs of interoperability between specific applications and users’ existing CAD systems. The interface

  • provides a high level of shapes' data exchange quality;

  • requires no third-party license;

  • expands data exchange capabilities of your analysis codes. To get a quotation email to
