With Inventor software products, users can create a single digital model that can enable them to design, visualise, and simulate products digitally before they are ever built.
Digital Prototyping — The Autodesk® solution for Digital Prototyping brings together design data from all phases of the product development process to develop a single digital model, created in Autodesk® Inventor® software.
3D mechanical CAD — An intuitive 3D mechanical design environment can enable engineers to focus on a design’s function to drive the automatic creation of intelligent components such as plastic parts, steel frames, and rotating machinery.
DWG™ interoperability — Inventor software allows direct read and write capabilities for authentic DWG files, helping enable engineers to integrate AutoCAD® drawings and 3D data into a single digital model, creating a virtual representation of the final product.
Design documentation and visualisation — Inventor software provides design communication tools that help convey design ideas to stakeholders in a compelling way, more accurately document designs for manufacturing, or create powerful images and videos that help sell your ideas to customers.
Simulation — Easy-to-use and tightly integrated motion simulation and stress analysis make it possible to optimise and validate a digital prototype and help predict how the design will work under real-world conditions, before the product is ever built.
Complex routed systems — The Autodesk Inventor products include automated tools for designing routed systems, such as complex tube and pipe runs and electrical cable and harness design.
Plastic parts and tooling — Plastic-parts designers and manufacturers can use specialised functionality and workflows that simplify the design of high-quality molded part and injection molds.
Autodesk delivers a complete solution for manufacturers, including the most innovative 2D and 3D design tools and the only practical data management solution on the market. Working with Autodesk software, you’ll use design data to accelerate product development cycles, collaborate more efficiently with manufacturing partners, and, in the end, get better-quality products to market faster.
