IAM

An IAM file is an assembly model created with Inventor CAD and engineering software by Autodesk.

The IAM format comprises parts and subassemblies linked through assembly relationships. A subassembly in an IAM file is a self-contained unit with its collection of parts.

The .iam extension of an Autodesk Inventor Assembly Data File can be viewed using the following software: Autodesk Inventor / Inventor View, and Spaceclaim Engineer software. Autodesk Viewer web application and Fusion 360 integrated CAD / CAM / CAE software environment can import and render an assembly model created with Inventor.

Tekla Logo

Tekla, owned by Trimble is a software product family that consists of programs for analysis and design. Tekla software includes several applications.

Tekla Structures is 3D BIM software widely used in the building and construction industries. The software allows users to create and operate 3D structural models in concrete or steel and leads them through the process from concept to fabrication.

Tekla Structural Designer is a software app for analysis and construction design. It is used by structural engineers.

Tekla Tedds is a software solution for automating repetitive calculations. It is used in engineering for creating output such as calculations, sketches and notes.

Tekla BIMsight is an application for building information model-based construction project collaboration.
