SPI Ducting for Autodesk® Inventor®

With SPI SheetMetal Inventor you receive a professional library with pre-defined components that can be used immediately. This library offers e.g. standard parts, transitions, and connectors that can easily be customized. Several combinations of round, angled and filleted transitions can be picked up from clearly arranged dialogue boxes and afterwards be created as bending parts. The SPI component library supports you in making designs suitable for production and to file them as samples in the database. In that way you define and guaranty your construction guidelines.

SPI Ducting for Autodesk® Inventor® supports complex design and unfolding of 3D pipes with Autodesk® Inventor® software. It is useful for single parts or components of complete assemblies. An easy-to-use interface, precise parameter definitions, automatic assembly design, and predefined material data editor aid productivity immediately after installation.
