11:00 am – PDM Collection: AnyCAD Workflow from Fusion 360 to Inventor

Inventor 2016 introduced AnyCAD, a feature in which you can translate non-native CAD data into Inventor with associative connections. This means that you no longer need to maintain a multi-software environment, and the process of repeated file translation is a thing of the past.

But why is this so important?
The problem then lies in getting proper communication and collaboration within the differing CAD systems. In the past you would need to export as a generic file type, something like IGES or STEP to be opened in the secondary tool. Then comes the issue with design changes. If the source file changes, the entire export and translate process needs to start from scratch. Any direct edits are lost and need to be rebuilt from scratch.

It works for Inventor but is it the same workflow in Fusion 360? 
Yes! We introduced AnyCAD in Fusion 360 as a Preview Technology last year which means you can work with Inventor files in Fusion 360 and Fusion 360 files in Inventor and more.

May 9th – Services Day

9:00 am – Software Development Strategies used by Applied to create the Best Customer Experience

Custom software development is the process of designing and developing software for a specific purpose that fits a unique group or organization. The software is designed to fit the user’s need precisely as opposed to an off the shelf software that was designed to fit a more broad business process. Choosing to start a custom software project can be daunting to those that aren’t familiar with the process. In this webinar, you will gain an understanding of how Applied uses software development strategies and tools to create the best customer experience.
