TCAI

The Teamcenter®  Integration for Autodesk®  Inventor® (also known as TCAI) is developed by MechWorks (part of ITI from 2018) and sold by Siemens Digital Industries Software.

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.
