Autodesk Inventor is a computer-aided design application for 3D mechanical design, simulation, visualization, and documentation developed by Autodesk.Inventor allows 2D and 3D data integration in a single environment, creating a virtual representation of the final product that enables users to validate the form, fit, and function of the product before it is ever built.Autodesk Inventor includes powerful parametric, direct edit and freeform modelling tools as well as multi-CAD translation capabilities and in their standard DWG™ drawings. Inventor uses ShapeManager, Autodesk's proprietary geometric modelling kernel. Autodesk Inventor competes directly with SolidWorks, Solid Edge, and Creo.
Inventor® 3D CAD software provides professional-grade mechanical design, documentation, and product simulation tools.
Powerful blend of parametric, direct, freeform, and rules-based design capabilities.
Integrated tools for sheet metal, frame design, tube and pipe, cable & harness, presentations, rendering, simulation, machine design, and more.
TrustedDWG® compatibility and powerful Model-Based Definition capabilities for embedding manufacturing information directly in the 3D model.
