Create Pressure Vessel and Heat Exchanger Drawings with the Codeware Interface®

The Codeware Interface (CWI) is an add-in that imports COMPRESS pressure vessels into SOLIDWORKS® or Inventor® as smart models. It manages equipment data associated with the imported solid models through the use of iProperties (Inventor) or Custom Properties (SOLIDWORKS).

Drafter 3D, added to the CWI for COMPRESS Build 7700, can automatically generate 2D pressure vessel and heat exchanger drawings. The CWI also supports the use of advanced solid modeling techniques such as Assembly Representations , Assembly Configurations , Features, Sketches and Sheet Metal. CWI support for Mates and management of change (MOC) is scheduled for release in 2017.
