Autodesk Inventor Overview

Make great products in less time

Autodesk Inventor is the center of an open and connected product development ecosystem that enables you to make great products with professional grade engineering solutions. The Inventor model is an accurate 3D digital prototype that enables you to validate the form, fit, and function of a design as you work, minimizing the need to test the design with physical prototypes.

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.

Design and validate products digitally

With an intuitive design environment for developing initial concept sketches and models of parts and assemblies. Inventor software provides powerful parametric modeling, robust direct editing tools and advanced surfacing modeling capabilities with T-splines.

You can automate the advanced geometry creation of intelligent components, such as plastic parts, steel frames, rotating machinery, tube and pipe runs, and electrical cable and wire harnesses. Inventor software also helps reduce the geometry burden so you can rapidly build and refine digital prototypes that validate design functions and help minimize manufacturing costs.

Autodesk Vault Overview

Improve design collaboration and communication

Reduce errors and associated engineering change orders before manufacturing by generating manufacturing documentation directly from your validated 3D digital prototype. Inventor is tightly integrated with Autodesk Vault, enabling the efficient and secure exchange of design data and promoting earlier collaboration between design and manufacturing workgroups. 

Different workgroups can manage and track all components of a digital prototype with Autodesk Design Review software, the all-digital way to review, measure, mark up, and track changes to designs enabling better reuse of crucial design data, management of bills of materials (BOMs), and collaboration with other teams and partners.
