Autodesk® Inventor® 3D CAD software products offer a comprehensive, flexible set of software for 3D mechanical design, product simulation, tooling creation, engineer to order, and design communication. Inventor takes you beyond 3D to Digital Prototyping by enabling you to produce an accurate 3D model that can help you design, visualize, and simulate your products before they are built. Digital Prototyping with Inventor helps companies design better products, reduce development costs, and get to market faster.
Autodesk® Inventor® 3D mechanical design software includes CAD productivity and design communication tools that can help you reduce errors, communicate more effectively, and deliver more innovative product designs faster. The Inventor model is an accurate 3D digital prototype that can validate the form, fit, and function of a design as you work and unites direct modeling and parametric workflows so you always have the right tool for the job.
Autodesk® Inventor® Professional 3D CAD software can help you design, visualize, and simulate a more complete digital representation of your end product. It includes all of the core 3D mechanical design, CAD productivity, and design communication functionality of Autodesk Inventor plus extended capabilities for:
- Optimizing and validating with integrated simulation tools, minimizing the need to test the design with physical prototypes
- Designing routed systems of complex tube and pipe runs
- Electrical cable and harness designs
- Creating tooling for manufacturable plastic parts
