HELiOS Product Data Management (PDM) integrated in Inventor

With our PDM solution HELiOS, we created a full integration in Inventor for you. As certified partner of Autodesk, our PDM system HELiOS is firmly established in the user interface of Inventor. This far-reaching integration, directly in a constructors main tool -   the CAD system - allows them to take advantage of HELiOS directly from their familiar Inventor environment, without having to switch between different programs.

HELiOS PDM Ribbons in Inventor

With HELiOS PDM, we offer you a wide range of PDM functionalities in Inventor - adjusted to the respective drawing mode of the CAD system. For this purpose, our PDM system offers a specially compiled ribbon for e.g. working with:

  • Parts
  • Assemblies
  • Active part in Assemblies
  • Drawings
  • Inventor Presentations
  • General Ribbon (Inventor Start Modus)

Advantages of HELiOS PDM in Inventor

Benefit from many HELiOS PDM functions in Inventor, which support you with sophisticated automatisms

  • Quick retrieval of your drawings
  • Easy access with and without editing rights
  • Check-In/Save logic
  • Information on all articles and documents
  • Simple creation of entire assemblies at the push of a button, directly including all article and document masters, as well as the associated product structure in the PDM
  • Configurable mapping between IProperties and HELiOS attributes (including filling of BOMs and title blocks with HELiOS attributes via IProperties)
  • Easy creation and configurable update logics for new index levels in drawings
  • Fully automated option to create derived drawings, including the creation of new articles and replacement of derived parts in the overall drawing

HELiOS Workspace

During the design process you are supported by the HELiOS workspace embedded in Inventor. This eliminates the need to daily load via the network, when reserving editing rights for a longer period of time while working on a large design. You get an additional overview of which parts, assemblies and drawings are reserved for you.
