Tools for Inventor Applications

bom-tools-for-inventor

BOM Tools: Inventor 2011 – 2018

BOM Tools for Inventor has been developed to export Autodesk Inventor’s Bill of Materials to Excel, including each part’s thumbnail or image as listed in the BOM. Other properties like Part Number, Description, and Material etc. are also included and exported to the Excel file.

BOM Tools for Inventor has been developed to export Autodesk Inventor’s Bill of Materials to Excel, including each part’s thumbnail or image as listed in the BOM. Other properties like Part Number, Description, and Material etc. are also included and exported to the Excel file.

An additional option to include model parameters has been added which makes it useful to include sizing information like cut lengths or sheet metal flat pattern extents inside the Excel file with the thumbnail of your part. This is very useful for downstream processing purposes and eliminates error prone manual work-flows. BOM Tools for Inventor now includes the ability to export the “Structured”, “Structured with All levels” or “Parts Only” Bill of Materials to Excel.

The standard version of BOM Tools has been discontinued. All BOM Tools users can upgrade to BOM Tools Pro completely free of charge.

DXF Flat Pattern Exporter for inventor

DXF Flat Pattern Exporter: Inventor 2011 – 2018

Export your whole Inventor Assembly’s sheet metal parts’ Flat Patterns to DXF in one go. Besides exporting Flat Patterns, the application also inserts the Part Number, Material, Thickness and Quantity properties inside each Flat Pattern DXF file!

Export your whole Inventor Assembly’s sheet metal parts’ Flat Patterns to DXF in one go. Besides just exporting the Flat Patterns the application will also insert the Part Number, Material, Thickness and Quantity properties inside each Flat Pattern DXF file! This greatly improves efficiency and saves time having to do manual processing work down the line. This eliminates any errors creeping in having to manually entering these and specifying it for cutting purposes.

Options are provided to simplify the exported geometry to make the file readable in any CNC software removing duplicate or double lines where possible. All profiles are re-based to the positive quadrant and can be configured to only contain Cut lines. No clean-up required afterwards.

InventorBench: Inventor 2014 – 2018

InventorBench is an application to benchmark test your Inventor PC to determine performance values which can be compared to other PC’s running Inventor. InventorBench will generate a detailed list of performance values plus an overall “Inventor PC Index” or IPI. In can perform three main tests looking at your PC’s Inventor modelling, graphics and drawing creation performance. Benchmark results can easily be exported to Excel format and all your PC’s results can then be appended to one Excel file.

Tools for Inventor Libraries

Rexroth Aluminium Extrusion Library

The Rexroth extrusion library has been compiled to be used with Inventor’s Content Centre as well as Inventor’s Frame Generator design tool. Inventor’s Content Centre does not contain any aluminium extrusion profiles by default so this is a necessary add-on if you use the Rexroth extrusion system for design and manufacturing. Each section has its own unique Stock No, Part No and File Name, all automatically generated and mapped to the parts iProperties for use in BOM tables and Parts Lists. This makes the steel sections easily identifiable within the Inventor part/assembly environment as well as in parts lists on Inventor drawing documentation.

SABS / SANS Steel Library

For Inventor 2013-2018

The SABS / SANS Structural Steel Library for Inventor was created consisting of all the steel sections used in South Africa, available from local steel suppliers and listed by SABS / SANS.

The SABS / SANS Structural Steel Library for Inventor was created consisting of all the steel sections used in South Africa, available from local steel suppliers and listed by SABS / SANS.

This single steel library has been compiled to be used with Inventor’s Content Center as well as Frame Generator. By having a single library time is saved by preventing confusion having to use scattered content across the different standard Inventor libraries, and a reduction in time searching for the section you want. Each section has its own unique Stock No, Part No and File Name, all automatically generated and mapped to the parts iProperties for use in BOM tables and Parts Lists. This makes the steel sections easily identifiable within the Inventor part/assembly environment as well as in parts lists on Inventor drawing documentation.

Standardised steel section names are being applied and used so that your parts are easily identified and recognized by your customers or structural steel suppliers in South Africa.

Please read the instructions on how to set it up within Inventor. For more information or a quotation please email ivtools@mgfx.co.za.
