A Digital Workflow

Enabling a digital workflow seems to be a regular discussion topic from the major CAD companies. To their credit, they have made huge progress when it comes to creating drawings. I would classify both traditional PDM tools, as well as cloud based tools such as Autodesk 360 and GrabCAD Workbench, as excellent ways to enable an integrated digital workflow for drawing creation. But what about drawing access?

AUGIworld August 2012 - The truth about sharing Inventor Data

AUGIworld August 2012 The truth about sharing Inventor Data

Once again I had the honour of being asked to submit an article for AUGIworld by the Manufacturing content editor John Evans (Thanks John). With the theme of this issue being about teamwork and collaboration, I thought that it would be a good idea to talk some about DWF.

If you've taken the time to digitally prototype your design with Autodesk Inventor, then you have a wealth of information available to your supply chain that may not be accessible from the paper drawings. DWF can be a great way to metaphorically roll up your entire data set (Drawings, 3D digital mo and BOM) to with your client, colleagues or subcontractors.

In the article, you will find clear instructions on how to create the equivalent of a 2D 'Paper' drawing set. You will find out how to export the 3D mo along with the drawings, and include the BOM as well.

Finally, I show you how to upload the entire thing to Autodesk 360 to with anyone in the world (well - anyone who has access to the internet)!
