The Codeware Interface® is an add-in for Autodesk® Inventor® and SOLIDWORKS® that is included with each license of COMPRESS. It imports your COMPRESS pressure vessel and heat exchanger models and manages the associated data through iProperties (Inventor) or custom properties (SOLIDWORKS).
Codeware Interface converts COMPRESS export files (.xml3D) into Inventor or SOLIDWORKS files. Simply click 'Import Model' from our custom Inventor menu to import your COMPRESS vessel or exchanger model, associated properties and preferences (e.g. units of measurement).
You can download a trial version of SOLIDWORKS or Inventor from the respective software provider's website.
Yes, the Codeware Interface is available at no additional cost provided that your COMPRESS support is current. Three (3) Codeware Interface licenses are included with each single user license. Five (5) Codeware Interface licenses are included with each network and enterprise network license.
Clients can download the Codeware Interface from our Support Center.
