The Teamcenter Integration for Autodesk Inventor® (also known as TCAI) is developed by MechWorks (part of ITI from 2018) and sold by Siemens PLM.
TCAI provides a bridge between Autodesk Inventor as the design system and Teamcenter as the system of record. TCAI improves efficiency while enabling users to focus on product development. In addition, users are able to manage data with Teamcenter with minimal effort, referring to clients only for virtual paperwork such as sign-offs and ECO processing.
By using Teamcenter as a CAD-neutral format, downstream users are given direct access to data when appropriate without interrupting the CAD users. And since TCAI follows all rules established in Teamcenter, groups such as Manufacturing, Procurement and Production can seamlessly consume Inventor data downstream without disrupting corporate Teamcenter practices.
