Autodesk Inventor is a parametric 3D solid modeling design software developed by Autodesk to create 3D digital prototypes. It is used for 3D mechanical design, design communication, tooling creation and product simulation.

This software enables users to produce accurate 3D models to aid in designing, visualizing and simulating products before they are built. Inventor allows you to create product prototypes that accurately simulate the weight, stress, friction, driving loads, and much more of products and their components in a simulated 3D environment. Everything from basic mold designs to detailed mechanical engineering models can be created and tested using Inventor's integrated motion simulation and assembly stress analysis tools. Inventor is well known for its accurate 3D modeling features that help you create and visualize your products. Inventor also includes integrated CAD simulation and design communication tools that not only enhances CAD productivity and help to reduce errors but also can be integral in cutting development timelines in half.

What are the benefits of using Inventor?

Individuals who are currently using AutoCAD or plan on learning AutoCAD will inherit many benefits of using Inventor. Inventor offers a familiar design environment and many AutoCAD-compatible shortcuts; and with true DWG (drawing) file support, Inventor allows AutoCAD users to leverage their existing 2D drawings to build accurate 3D models. A popular use of Inventor is digital prototyping. With Inventor, prototyping can be accomplished easily by integrating 2D AutoCAD drawings and 3D data into a digital model which will serve as a virtual representation of the final product. By doing so, engineers are able to better design and simulate products without the need to create physical prototypes. With Inventor's wide range of 3D mechanical design tools, users can quickly explore and evaluate concepts smoothly and efficiently. Autodesk Inventor offers many other tools and features that can enhance productivity such as Integrated Data Management, Design Automation, Automatic Drawing Updates and Views, Automatic Bill of Materials, and much more.
