HELiOS is Inventor® 2019 certified
In 2019, the PDM/PLM solution HELiOS of the Dortmund-based ISD Software und Systeme GmbH has been certified again for its Autodesk Inventor® software integration, thus intensifying its cooperation with the US software company for digital 2-D and 3-D design. As a long-standing member of the Autodesk Developer Network (ADN), meeting the standards required for this certification on a regular basis is a matter of course for the ISD. For the current release Autodesk Inventor® 2019 the ISD provides you with an appropriate interface to its own PDM/PLM system HELiOS. Currently HELiOS supports the Inventor and AutoCAD versions 2012-2019.
The HELiOS-Inventor interface is available in inventor in the form of an additional module (Add-on). Depending on the respective design context ("HELiOS general", "Part”, “Assembly", "Active part", "Drawing”), it provides different HELiOS Ribbons integrated into the Inventor user interface. These offer a wide range of functions:
- Transfer of entire assemblies, with article and document master generation
- Extensive functionalities for a quick deriving of parts and assemblies
- Support of the Content Centre (recognition of standard parts with article master; also for screwed and bolted connections)
- Bidirectional, configurable synchronization of iProperties and HELiOS attributes
- Well-structured workspace
- Many possibilities to get information on articles and documents directly from the Inventor model drawing and edit them
- BOM transfer from Inventor to HELiOS, with evaluation of BOM-relevance
- NON-CAD-relevant data can be added to BOM in HELiOS
HELiOS manages all Inventor files as HELiOS parts with associated article masters from the HELiOS article management; these are created via the interface and are linked to each other automatically. Catalogue parts from the Inventor Content Centre, too, will be integrated into the PDM system by including them into the article and document management. HELiOS offers the option to link all kinds of other objects, such as Office and archive documents, in the form of neutral formats (PDF, STEP, DXF, ...) to Inventor documents or the associated article masters, giving you access to all relevant information from Inventor.
