CMS for Autodesk® Inventor® 

Inventor DSTV export for structural steel CNC machines

StrucSoft’s CMS for Autodesk® Inventor® is a CAD/CAM software application dedicated to the production and manipulation of DSTV-NC (nc1) file output format. The software quickly generates files with the extension*.NC1 according to user preferences for accurate communication between design software and CNC machines that produce structural steel.

DSTV is an industrial standard developed by the German steel construction association (Deutsche STahlbau Verband). Each part that is created will have its own DSTV file and the DSTV file will describe operations within a part or assembly, such as:

  • Cuts (AK blocks in DSTV) and Openings (IK blocks in DSTV)
  • Drills and Slot Holes (BO blocks in DSTV)
  • Markings / Etching (KO blocks in DSTV)
  • Text Stenciling (SI blocks in DSTV)
