Inventor 2017 – Use Solidworks Multi-body Sheet Metal Parts with AnyCAD

You may have heard the noise about AnyCAD in Inventor 2016 onwards – it’s a lifesaver for multi-disciplinary CAD environments & supply chains. But did you know that it can also be paired with the very powerful new sheet metal recognition and multi-body ability in Inventor? If you put these two technologies together, you have the ability to create unfolded flat patterns and 2D drawings for Solidworks complex sheet metal assemblies directly in Inventor. Then if the original Solidworks files are changed, you can open Inventor, and watch the whole lot update instantly. Amazing!
