Natively integrated with RULESTREAM PRODUCT CONTROL MODEL (PCM) - No need for intermediate exchange formats (e.g. XML). The integration is a library (.dll) leveraging on the Inventor' API for communicating with an active Inventor session.
The library is loaded at runtime in the Custom.vb of Rulestream. The Custom.vb contains the needed functions for traversing the PCM and its properties. Whenever a property with given prefix is found (CAD_TemplateName, CAD_Constraint, CAD_Parameter) dedicated methods of the library are called to control the active Inventor session.
- LOAD PARTS and ASSEMBLIES
- DRIVE PARAMETERS
- DEFINE CONSTRAINTS
- DRAWINGS GENERATION
- CUSTOM-FUNCTION based on customer need can be easily added (as long they are supported by INVENTOR API)
