” In the past, the designer made drawings of the parts for production and DXF files for cutting. Now the drawings produced by the designers are created into the necessary file formats automatically. This reduces the risk of errors significantly. When parts are added to the assembly within Inventor, a bill of material is created to Sovelia automatically. The drawings made in the design phase are managed in Autodesk Vault and after the design is completed the product is approved for production in Sovelia.
