Reuse your engineering data

  • Use 2D AutoCAD® drawings as a base for Inventor® layouts
  • Use standard component libraries to populate assemblies
  • Integrate data from many sources into one design

Quickly and easily make product design changes

  • Capture design intent with parametric tools
  • Make geometric changes with direct modeling functionality
  • Update designs to reflect changes automatically

Integrate electrical and mechanical design

  • Create 3D wire layouts by importing electrical schematics
  • Automate cable harness design in the 3D environment
  • Create 3D product design models from a schematic

Conceptual design:

Easily and quickly model organic shapes

  • Get started quickly with simple geometric shapes
  • Explore and create freeform shaped models using direct manipulation
  • Incorporate freeform and parametric workflows into a single model

Precisely manipulate geometry

  • Explore redesign possibilities without commitment
  • Change parametric geometry in models with complex histories
  • Revise imported base solid data
