Autodesk Inventor Professional software provides engineers specialized design and engineering tools for 3D mechanical design, simulation, tooling, visualization, and documentation. With Inventor software, engineers can integrate 2D drawings and 3D data into a single digital model, creating a virtual representation of the final product that enables them to validate the form, fit, and function of the product before it is ever built.
Professional design tools for professionals like you
The tools you use in Inventor are getting better in so many ways. You’ll find a new tool to help you better understand the relationships between all the features in your design, easier access to cross-part references, sketch-driven patterning to help you quickly create uniquely repeated geometry, and much more. We’re also improving 3D sketch commands to be faster and easier to use, giving you greater control. And enhancements to tube and pipe make it faster than ever to create flexible hose routes in your designs.
By enabling you to design, visualize, and simulate your products digitally, Inventor software helps you connect more effectively, reduce errors, and deliver great product designs faster.
Traditionally, validating the operating characteristics of a design before it was built meant hiring expensive specialists. But with Inventor, you don’t need to be a simulation expert to effectively simulate and optimize designs digitally. Inventor products include easy-to-use and tightly integrated part and assembly-level motion simulation and stress analysis functionality. By simulating stress, deflection, and motion, you can optimize and validate your design under real-world conditions, before the product or part is ever built.
Create the best design possible
Autodesk Inventor includes shape generator tools that work directly inside of Inventor for the optimization and light-weighting of components. Shape generator allows you to specify loads and conditions components will face and provides an optimized design based on your target weight reduction and geometry requirement.
