TWMA buys Autodesk Inventor

Friday, January 11, 2013

TWMA, a company which provides waste management services for the oil and gas industry, has bought 9 seats for Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk's software for 3D mechanical design and computer aided design.

Neil Fraser Thomson, project engineering manager at TWMA, says that the software has helped increase design productivity, by helping move from 2D design to digital prototyping.

"3D models are visualised and analysed on screen so that clashes can be detected early in the design process," says Symetri, an Autodesk partner based in the UK.

Autodesk Inventor has a "Frame Generator" tool which can be used to design machine framework.

The software can automatically put together Bills of Materials (BOMs) from the data behind the 3D model.

TWMA is also using Autodesk's Vault data management software to store historical design data.

'All these factors have combined to totally transform the way we work and design,' says Mr Thomson. "We can now work so much faster. In addition, Symetri's Aberdeen based training facility has been an added bonus.'
