Autodesk® Netfabb® additive manufacturing software helps you quickly get from a 3D model to successfully printed parts. Are you facing these challenges? Converting andRead more about this product »
The Autodesk Inventor product line provides a comprehensive and flexible set of software for 3D mechanical design, simulation, tooling creation, and design communication that help you cost-effectively take advantage of a Digital Prototyping workflow to design and build better products in less time.
Easy-to-use and tightly integrated motion simulation and stress analysis in the Autodesk Inventor Professional software helps you predict how the design will work under real-world conditions before building it.Optimize and validate product performance before the product is built. Because these tools are part of the 3D design software, it’s practical and cost-effective to employ simulation throughout the design process. Autodesk Inventor Professional gives you the tools to record your engineering decisions and share the results of simulation with team members - allowing you to derive maximum benefit from your digital prototypes.
Tubes and Pipe Design
Use Autodesk Inventor Professional to accelerate the design for routed elements, including tubing, piping, and flexible hose. Autodesk Inventor Professional provides rules-based routing tools that select the correct fittings and helps the pipe run to comply with your standards for segment length, round-off increments, and bend radius.
Cable and Harness
Autodesk Inventor Professional streamlines cable and harness design by leveraging wire list information imported from schematic design packages such as AutoCAD Electrical. Full integration with the bill of materials (BOM) tools in Autodesk Inventor helps you make sure that your BOM accurately represents the electrical components in your design.
Tooling and Mold Design
Autodesk Inventor Professional helps automate key aspects of the design of injection molds for plastic parts. This allows you to quickly create and validate complete mold designs, reducing errors and improving mold performance.Autodesk Inventor Professional includes Moldflow plastic flow analysis tools. Use them to determine material flow rates, ideal gate locations, shrinkage, and process parameters. Autodesk Inventor Professional provides an extensive collection of vendor catalogs of standard mold bases and components so you won’t have to spend time modeling them.
3D layout and System design
Getting the initial design concept right is the key to a successful project. Move your initial design studies from paper by using the parametric design environment in
Inventor to develop initial concept sketches and kinematic models.
Plastic Part Design
Autodesk Inventor software offers plastic parts designers maximum flexibility by combining native Inventor geometry with exterior surface models designed with industrial design applications such as the Autodesk® Alias family of products. Functional plastic features, rule-based fillets and powerful multi-body workflows simplify the design of high-quality molded part models.
Sheet Metal Design
Use the Inventor Digital Prototype to simplify the design of complex sheet metal parts.
Autodesk Inventor software combines design accelerators with assembly tools so you can be sure that every part and component in an assembly design fits correctly.Accurately validate interference and mass properties to produce quality products the first time.
AutoCAD Integration and DWG Interoperability
Inventor software makes it easy for AutoCAD users to experience the benefits of Digital Prototyping by leveraging investments in AutoCAD expertise and DWG design data. All Autodesk Inventor software products bundles also include the latest version of AutoCAD Mechanical.
Accept projects that use different applications. Autodesk Inventor offers a comprehensive suite of translators, including native translators that read and write files from other CAD tools and translators for industry standard formats such as IGES and STEP.
Accelerate the adoption of Digital Prototyping. Inventor software offers a range of learning and reference resources to help you build and maintain your skills as well as quickly make the most of the 3D design environment.
Customisation and Automation
Using the Inventor API (application programming interface), you can streamline frequently used procedures and automate specialized workflows that support design standards and engineering processes.
Design and Manufacturing Documentation
Easily generate and share production-ready drawings with manufacturing teams and outside suppliers. Autodesk Inventor software allows you to generate engineering and
manufacturing documentation from a validated digital prototype to reduce errors and deliver designs in less time. Autodesk Inventor software provides support for all major drawing standards, automated drawing updates, and output in the DWG™ format.
3D Visualisation and Design Communication
Improve communication and collaboration with stakeholders and customers using the same digital prototype used to design and validate their designs.Designers and engineers now have the tools to convey design ideas to managers in a compelling way, explain designs to manufacturing, and convince customers that they have the best solution for their needs.
Use Autodesk Inventor software to efficiently and securely exchange design data and support collaboration between different engineering contributors, including industrial
design, product design, and manufacturing.
