Rhino 3D to Autodesk Inventor: Sheet Metal by Daniel Giuffre

if/LAB in collaboration with Denmac have developed an automated sheet metal workflow that takes design models through to fabrication by linking Rhino 3D with Autodesk’s Inventor. This process increases fabrication efficiency by reducing need for remodelling, decreasing lead times and costs, whilst increasing accuracy and adaptability to onsite and design changes.
