      AutoCAD and Inventor work better together

      Design faster and get more from your models by combining the capabilities of AutoCAD and Inventor. Get the flexibility of AutoCAD, including the ability to collaborate with other 2D users. And with Inventor, save time on manual tasks and apply 3D models for downstream use cases.

      Essentials of 3D CAD for 2D users e-book

      Why use both 2D and 3D?

      Even the simplest part has something to gain from adding 3D CAD to your workflows. Download the Essentials of 3D CAD for 2D Users and learn how to cut back on manual effort and get more value from models–from design to the shop floor.

      How AutoCAD and Inventor work together

      • Create models from AutoCAD geometry

        You don't have to start from scratch. Import existing DWGTM files into Inventor to create 3D models in minutes.

      • Reuse Inventor models inside AutoCAD

        Do your colleagues, partners, or clients use 2D? You can collaborate in 2D workflows by bringing Inventor data into AutoCAD.

      • Improve efficiency across the development cycle

        Automate modeling tasks, easily handle design changes, optimize performance, and meet manufacturing needs.
