CIS/2 File Export From Inventor...Again?

405 Views, 4 Replies

Hello all,

 

I have a frame that we have designed and detailed using Inventor and Frame Generator. The steel fabricator is asking for a CIS/2 model file to use with their Fabrication/Management software. I have done a search of this forum and found two posts asking about this format (from 2004 & 2009) but neither have any responses.

 

It does not appear that IV will export this information natively so I am looking for some kind of work-flow to get them this information using AD products. Any suggestions? Anyone ever done this? Any resellers out there familiar with a product/translator?

 

Thanks for the help.

Nothing huh?

 

I was looking around for an AutoDesk Steel Detailing forum but there doesn't appear to be one. I thought maybe there would be a way to go from IV to Steel Detailing out to CIS/2 or something.

 

This is now the third thread on this forum about this export option with no responses. I guess the fact that there are only three should be a clue about its possibility. Doesn't seem like many people here get asked for that type. It's the adopted file format for the majority of steel fabrication software and the American Institute of Steel Construction.

 

Any change AutoDesk can chime in here and sell me some more of their software or something?

Thank you. I didn't notice it in there the last time I looked through. I will try over there.
