Multi-CAD Environments Get Increased Interoperability

Jan. 19, 2007
Autodesk and PTC sign technology exchange agreement.

Autodesk and PTC, in an effort to support manufacturers who have multi-CAD environments, will provide manufacturing companies with out-of-the-box integrations between their solutions that will enable companies to work more efficiently between systems.

Manufacturers in aerospace, automotive, high technology and industrial machinery need flexibility as they integrate both a variety of products and processes used in their heterogeneous design environments. The new agreement can help in this area as PTC will leverage Autodesk's RealDWG software development toolkit and deliver solutions using Autodesk's DWG technology, so that PTC's solutions will be interoperable with Autodesk Inventor 3D software. Similarly, Autodesk can utilize PTC's GRANITE 3D modeling and interoperability kernel to provide enhanced integration with Pro/ENGINEER, PTC's integrated 3D CAD/CAM/CAE software.
