      TruComposites 2021 features

      Use TruComposites composite design, analysis, and manufacturing tools for hand layup and automated workflows. Learn about creating flat patterns, laser projection data, and fiber placement programming.

      Composite design

      • Enhanced

        Surfacing and wireframe

        STANDARD, ULTIMATE

        Create complex composite designs with Inventor’s surface and sketch tools.

      • Import composite design

        STANDARD, ULTIMATE

        Import composite-design-rich data models from CATIA composite design and FiberSIM. (video: 1:17 min.)

      • Ply layup definition

        STANDARD

        Define the layups, sequences, and plies that create your composite part.

      • Enhanced | Ply subdivision

        STANDARD

        Divide sub-plies into smaller plies and determine sub-ply overlaps automatically from splices.

      • Edit curve

        STANDARD, ULTIMATE

        Edit existing curves inside the composite environment using Inventor sketch tools.

      • Process material library

        STANDARD

        Store material parameters and packaging information in a shared library across multiple products.

      Material deposition analysis

      • Enhanced

        Manufacturing strategies

        STANDARD

        Create and analyze manufacturing strategies to compare options and lower costs.

      • Angle deviation

        STANDARD

        Determine where fiber angle will be out of tolerance based on manufacturing method.

      • Wrinkling

        STANDARD

        Identify where material wrinkling will occur during the layup process.

      • Gap and overlap

        STANDARD

        Visualize where consecutive courses will diverge and converge passed allowed tolerances.

      • Steering

        STANDARD

        Identify where material minimum steering radii will influence layup quality.

      • Compaction

        STANDARD

        Determine where material will compact appropriate to the workpiece during the manufacturing process.

      Composite manufacturing

      • Enhanced

        Flat pattern creation

        STANDARD

        Generate 2D flat patterns from 3D surface geometry based on material properties.

      • Laser projection and simulation

        STANDARD

        Export offset laser projection data and simulate the shop environment for laser projection optimization.

      • Integration with Inventor Nesting

        STANDARD

        Send flat patterns directly to Inventor Nesting to optimize material efficiency and drive cutting machines. (video: 2:16 min.)

      • Automated fiber placement

        ULTIMATE

        Program and edit toolpaths. Simulate machine motion and material deposition. 

      • Flat pattern export for TruNest

        STANDARD

        Export flat patterns directly to TruNest to ensure design data flows into manufacturing.

      • Automatic thickness compensation

        ULTIMATE

        Compare as-designed to as-manufactured parts and automatically compensate for out-of-tolerance areas.
