Autodesk Inventor Products

Autodesk® Inventor® 3D CAD software products offer a comprehensive, flexible set of software for 3D mechanical design, product simulation, tooling creation, engineer-to-order and design communication. Inventor takes you beyond 3D to Digital Prototyping by enabling you to produce an accurate 3D model that can help you to design, visualise and simulate your products before they are built. Digital Prototyping with Inventor helps companies to design better products, reduce development costs and get to market faster.

Autodesk Inventor LT

Add 3D Mechanical CAD at Your Own Pace
Autodesk® Inventor LT™ 3D mechanical CAD software delivers the powerful 3D part-level design capabilities of Autodesk Inventor 3D CAD software. Practical and affordable, Inventor LT offers a cost-effective way to introduce 3D part modelling into your 2D drafting workflows.

  • Add the power of 3D mechanical design – Design parts faster and better using 3D.
  • Use DWG – Create and update production DWG™ drawings more quickly and easily.
  • Accept projects that use third-party CAD data – Work with 3D data, including non-native assemblies from customers and suppliers.
  • Fully interoperable with AutoCAD LT – Reuse your 2D data to start designing in 3D.
  • Sheet metal capabilities – Help minimise manufacturing costs.

Autodesk Inventor Fusion

3D Modelling for Rapid Design Changes
Autodesk® Inventor® Fusion is 3D modelling software that showcases intuitive direct manipulation capabilities for unrivalled ease of use. By uniting direct modelling and parametric workflows, Inventor Fusion offers the best of both worlds. Designers can freely explore complex shapes and forms while maintaining the underlying parametric history. Inventor Fusion makes it easy to open and edit 3D models from almost any source and incorporate them into your design.

  • AutoCAD users – Expand the 3D conceptual design capabilities of AutoCAD and experience the benefits of 3D in the native DWG format.

Autodesk Inventor

3D CAD Software for Mechanical Design
Autodesk® Inventor® 3D mechanical design software includes CAD productivity and design communication tools that can help you to reduce errors, communicate more effectively and deliver more innovative product designs faster. The Inventor model is an accurate 3D digital prototype that can validate the form, fit and function of a design as you work and unites direct modelling and parametric workflows so you always have the right tool for the job.
Inventor can help you to:

  • Integrate data from AutoCAD® software and 3D data into a single digital model and create a virtual representation of the final product
  • Streamline projects that require opening third-party CAD data
  • Improve productivity by automating repetitive design workflows
  • Collaborate more effectively with accurate 2D documentation and 3D visualisation tools
  • Exchange design data efficiently and securely with integrated data management
  • Optimise material selection based on environmental impact, cost and performance to make better sustainable design decisions

Autodesk Inventor Professional

Extended Capabilities for Plastic Parts, Routed System Design
Autodesk® Inventor® Professional 3D CAD software can help you to design, visualise and simulate a more complete digital representation of your end product. It includes all of the core 3D mechanical design, CAD productivity and design communication functionality of Autodesk Inventor, plus extended capabilities for creating tooling for manufacturable plastic parts, complex routed systems design, and optimising and validating the performance of a design digitally, minimising the need to test the design with physical prototypes.

Easy-to-use and tightly integrated motion simulation  and stress analysis tools in Autodesk Inventor Professional can help you to predict how the design will work under real-world conditions so that you can get better products to market faster. Autodesk Inventor Professional also automates key aspects of the design of injection moulds for plastic parts, complex tube and pipe runs, and electrical cable and harness designs to help you minimise errors and gain an edge over your competition.
