Mechanical design and 3D CAD software

Use Inventor® 3D CAD modelling software for product and mechanical design. Learn about the Inventor modelling, design, simulation and rendering features.

Product Design

  • Parametric modelling

    Focus on design as you create and edit your 3D models with an intuitive user interface. (video: 2.33 min.)

  • Assembly modelling

    See how your design will go together and perform at the assembly level. (video: 2.43 min.)

  • Drawing creation

    Quickly create clear, accurate, detailed drawings for manufacturing. (video: 3.07 min.)

Collaboration

  • Shared view collaboration

    Collaborate on your models or designs online. Anyone can review and comment on shared views in the Autodesk viewer. (video: 2.23 min.)

  • Work with non-native data

    Maintain an associative link to non-native CAD data. (video: 1.57 min.)

  • BIM interoperability

    Convert configurable 3D CAD models into BIM objects. (video: 2.27 min.)

Design automation

  • Design configurations

    Enable rapid configurations powered by iLogic. (video: 2 min.)

  • Automated frame design

    Quickly design and test structural frames. (video: 2.23 min.)

  • Sheet metal

    Design and prepare complex sheet metal products for manufacturing. (video: 1.42 min.)

Modelling

  • Model-based definition

    Include manufacturing information in your 3D model for downstream applications. (video: 2.10 min.)

  • Content centre

    Choose your standard components from a comprehensive customisable library. (video: 2.15 min.)

  • Shape Generator

    Create and evaluate high-performing design options in minutes. (video: 2.16 min.)

  • Flexible modelling

    Use the right modelling tool for every job with parametric, freeform and direct modelling tools.

  • Direct modelling

    Use easy push/pull controls to move, rotate, resize or scale features from imported geometries.

  • Freeform modelling

    Freely sculpt the shape of your design by moving points, edges and faces.

  • Mechanical concept and layout design

    Open DWG™ files directly inside Inventor as the basis for your 3D model.

  • Component generators and calculators

    Use built-in calculators to inform the design of common joints such as welds, clamps and press fits.

  • Tube and pipe design

    Use a combination of automated tools and full-control design functions in Inventor to build tube and pipe runs.

Connected data

  • Printed circuit board interoperability

    Integrate your electronics and mechanical designs into a single, complete definition of your product.

  • Data management

    Use easy push/pull controls to move, rotate, resize or scale features from imported geometries.

Simulation and visualisation

  • Dynamic simulation

    Apply forces to evaluate the motion, speed and acceleration of your design.

  • Stress analysis

    Run quick checks on parts or perform in-depth analysis of the entire product at any stage.

  • Exploded views and animations

    Use exploded views and animations of complex assemblies in product documentation, manuals and assembly instructions.
