ICP's CAD connectors provide extensive product structure handling and data-extraction capabilities for Aras Innovator, the company said. The ICP Autodesk Inventor and AutoCAD connector products for Aras Innovator allow users to load and save a 3D model structure as a document structure in Aras Innovator, create a parts list and import to Aras Innovator as a bill of materials product structure, create a drawing and refresh title block data, and plot and convert file formats by batch queue.
