WHITE HOUSE, Tennessee – July 1, 2008 – Striker Systems is pleased to announce that the latest release of FAB Professional, its sheet metal nesting and CAD/CAM software, has achieved certification for Autodesk Inventor 2009 software.
FAB Professional integrates with Autodesk Inventor 2009 via Striker’s unique PARTshare system. PARTshare provides direct access from Autodesk Inventor software to FAB Professional’s sheet metal nesting library. Parts can be added to the nesting library individually, or entire Inventor assemblies can be processed. Routing codes assigned to the Inventor models control which of the assembly parts are to be nested. Material properties and other manufacturing data are also extracted from Autodesk Inventor software to insure that nest jobs are properly constructed for subsequent punching or cutting operations.
“We are pleased to once again extend Autodesk Inventor software certification to Striker Systems,” said Brenda Discher, Senior Director of Marketing, Manufacturing Solutions Division at Autodesk. “Inventor 2009 certification underscores our joint commitment to providing innovative design and manufacturing solutions for our sheet metal customers.”
FAB Professional’s PARTshare interface for Autodesk Inventor 2009 software provides true, real-time integration between CAD and CAM functions.
“As engineering changes are released, data revisions are automatically reflected in the PARTshare nesting library,” comments Michael Boggs, Striker Systems Vice President of Sales. “This is the level of integration required in today’s competitive sheet metal fabrication industry.”
