Powermill is a 3D Computer-aided manufacturing app developed by Autodesk Inc. It runs on Microsoft Windows and is used in many different engineering industries to determine optimal toolpaths to reduce time and manufacturing costs.
Powermill rapidly creates toolpaths on large, complex parts, works with surfaces, solids and STL meshes. It uses efficient roughing strategies and can create gouge and collision free toolpaths, which can be edited and optimized. The software obtains comprehensive range of finishing toolpaths, user-defined macros and templates for automated CAM, extensive library of tool types for use with 3- and 5-axis milling, and specialist tools for demanding industries and applications.
An IPT file extension is used for Autodesk Inventor objects.
Autodesk Inventor is a CAD application that engineers and product designers use to construct prototypes of mechanical products. These prototypes, referred to as assemblies, consist of several individual parts joined together. Each Inventor part is saved in an IPT file.
Inventor users can import IPT parts from outside the program or create their IPT parts using the Inventor's part design tools. Typically, users begin by creating a 2D drawing of a part before transforming that drawing into a 3D model. Thus, an IPT file may contain either a 2D or 3D object. Files in IPT format can be opened using Autodesk Inventor 2017, Autodesk Inventor View 2017, Autodesk Fusion 360, and SpaceClaim Engineer.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
