Converting an existing Inventor ETO application is easy with kBridge's conversion utilities.

Inventor ETO Conversion

Engineering Intent understands the needs of Inventor ETO customers better than anyone else. After all, as the original creator of Intent - which became Inventor ETO after its sale to Autodesk - we understand how that system was able to capture the proprietary knowledge and engineering rules built into an Inventor ETO application. We know first-hand how critical hard-working automation applications work.

Knowledge Bridge is the successor to Intent. It is strengthened by its new modern, cloud-based platform and new capabilities, such as Snap-Drag™ interactive graphical positioning. Inventor ETO applications, though workstation-based, can be migrated to this new environment. A high degree of functionality can be converted, design-by-design. Knowledge Bridge retains a great deal of the DNA of Intent/Inventor ETO. Of course, there are differences, mainly found in the improvements and new features of Knowledge Bridge.

Benefits of switching to Knowledge Bridge

  • Global accessibility thanks to the move from the desktop to the cloud

  • High-speed, browser-based graphics preview lessens the frequency and need for Inventor interactions

  • Generation of drawings (AutoCAD format) without the need for any connection to any CAD

  • Direct integration with Revit - critical for manufacturers who deal with BIM

  • Optimized visual rule authoring environment - no more Visual Studio

  • Integrated, out of the box custom UI generation, with Snap-Drag drag and drop capabilities

  • Direct export to Excel, Word and PDF right from the web

  • Low-cost, easy deployment to large engineering or sales teams

  • No more platform/software updates

Free evaluation and roadmap

For a limited time, Engineering Intent is offering Inventor ETO customers a free evaluation of their existing automation applications, resulting in a Conversion Roadmap. The Roadmap provides a plan for conversion, highlights the benefits of moving to Knowledge Bridge, and identifies challenges.
