Encompassing design, manufacture and production control for all sheet metal components and products, Radan 2011 R2 has gained full certification from Autodesk for use with its Inventor 2012 CAD software.
Developed by Planit as a total CAD/CAM solution for the sheet metal industry, the latest release of Radan, 2011 R2, is supporting the company’s drive for the generation of digital prototypes.
Certified applications have to meet predetermined implementation guidelines and must demonstrate the highest levels of robustness, quality and interoperability when working with Autodesk Inventor software.
Full certification is only granted after a product has been thoroughly tested by internal staff at Autodesk.
Radan 2011 R2 has been fully certified for Autodesk Inventor 2012 under the Autodesk Inventor Certified Applications Program.
The Chief Technology Officer, Russell Franks explained: “In striving to save planning and production times, Radan extends the digital prototyping philosophy into manufacturing, enabling users to see how their prototypes will be machined and allows early identification of any potential manufacturing problems before they happen on the shopfloor. Autodesk Inventor 3D mechanical design software provides a comprehensive set of CAD tools for producing, validating, and documenting complete digital prototypes.
"We are delighted that with the extensive developments in Inventor 2012 for sheet metal manufacturers including Unfold/Refold workflows, lofted flanges and rip features as well as contoured rolls, it is enabling our customers and software users to define complex sheet metal parts that include rolled formed sections.”
Russell Franks continues: “Radan has a long history of working with Autodesk and other CAD partners, developing its design to manufacture software (DTM) to make it easier for customers get the most from their 3D designs. We are proud to be able say that yet again, Radan has gained full certification from Autodesk Inventor. In fact, Radan as a Silver Value Added Reseller and Autodesk Authorised Developer, we are proud to announce the Certification, and proud of our relationship with Autodesk Inventor.”
