Striker Systems has announced that Striker 2010, its sheet-metal computer-aided-design/-manufacturing (CAD/CAM) and nesting software, has achieved certification for Autodesk Inventor 2010.

Autodesk Inventor integration is achieved through Striker’s Partshare module: an Inventor add-in that allows Autodesk Inventor to share sheet-metal parts with Striker CAD/CAM through a networked library system.

Parts placed into the Partshare library include the necessary manufacturing data from the Inventor model, including material properties, revision information and routing details.

As soon as the parts are placed into the Partshare library, they are available for single-part and nest processing on CNC punching and cutting machines.

In the latest version of Partshare, assembly parts can be analysed for common design problems prior to manufacturing release.

These include missing or incorrect material properties, unmapped materials and missing sheet-metal styles.

Problem parts are highlighted in the assembly list, allowing them to be corrected before continuing with the release process.

This streamlines the manufacturing release process and exposes persistent design issues requiring further scrutiny, according to the company.
