Autodesk Inventor is a computer-aided design application for 3D mechanical design, simulation, visualization, and documentation developed by Autodesk.
- Modeling flexibility
- AnyCAD data
- Parametric modeling
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 modeling tools as well as multi-CAD translation capabilities and in their standard DWG™ drawings. Inventor uses ShapeManager, Autodesk’s proprietary geometric modeling kernel. Autodesk Inventor competes directly with SolidWorks, Solid Edge, and Creo.
The latest Autodesk Inventor product line includes the following software titles:
