Drawing Central for Autodesk® Inventor®
Digitally signed app
Drawing Central’s main purpose is to save Drafters (and Engineers) time and effort. Confusion can be a real drain on your productivity. Searching through project directory structures, trying to find the appropriate drawing register, is a good example. So the ability to very quickly load the appropriate drawing register and update your drawing title blocks can be very useful.
This is where Drawing Central comes in. By managing a project-based configuration system to reduce confusion. It also has an extremely easy to use interface. You can work with perfectly standard title blocks and excel files. Once your drawing has been configured it knows exactly where to find the project file and therefore the correct drawing register. This allows for the other part of the equation. Automation. Now you have this “link”, you can automatically update (or sync) your drawings with the latest project data.
Currently, Autodesk products AutoCAD, Inventor and Autodesk® Revit® are compatible with this application. This gives single users, or multi-disciplined project teams, the ability to share a “centralised” version of the drawing register. For example, using Drawing Central in a "cloud" based environment such as Autodesk® AutoCAD® Plant 3D and Autodesk® Advanced Steel in an Autodesk® BIM 360® collaboration.
Note: This app uses a custom installer (and not the standard App Store installer)
I recognized this software very much, if you can will he localization, this for most Chinese people will become very applicable.
We've been using this for number of years now and the time it saves updating titleblocks is incredible!
We have customised our titleblock to suit our needs and using the Excel spreadsheet to automatically update eliminates the risk of missing data.
As well as using it for Inventor & AutoCAD, we are now starting to use it with Revit & Advance Steel.
