Shrinkwrap Add-in for Inventor is an Inventor Add-in to create envelope parts from Inventor assemblies. Shrinkwrap Add-in for Inventor enables you to:
  • Create substitutes for use with alternative representations in Autodesk Inventor
  • Reduce detail of production data to protect intellectual property
  • Create simplified data for complex purchased assemblies
Shrinkwrap Add-in for Inventor takes advantage of Inventor’s derived part workflows to create a standalone, single part solid version of a model assembly. Most of the work for the end user is identifying holes in components to be filled with solid material. Shrinkwrap Add-in for Inventor fills any voids that remain in the assembly components.
This process of hole-filling is an interactive activity, allowing you to control how the envelope is created, including the level of detail desired. The following steps will introduce you into the functionality included in Shrinkwrap Add-in for Inventor.
