Create Drawings Automatically With The Codeware Interface®

The Codeware Interface (CWI) saves time and reduces errors by quickly generating SOLIDWORKS® or Inventor® pressure vessel solid models and drawings from COMPRESS and INSPECT designs. The CWI is an add-in for SOLIDWORKS or Inventor and is supplied at no extra cost to Codeware clients. It manages the data associated with the imported design files through the use of iProperties (Inventor) or Custom Properties (SOLIDWORKS).
