Convert meshes while working in Inventor 2011
The Inventor 2011 Mesh Enabler is a technology preview that enables Inventor users to work with imported Mesh data. Inventor 2011 can import mesh data from Catia V4 and V5 files including CGR. The Mesh Enabler adds the ability to convert selected mesh features to Base features. The resulting base features can then be used for further operations including drawings and measurements.
This preview is available until January 31, 2012 at which time the license expires and the function will be disabled. It is not known if this technology will be incorporated into a commercial product.
