Autodesk Inventor, included in the Autodesk Product Design & Manufacturing Industry Collection, is the center of an open and connected product development ecosystem that enables you to make great products with professional grade engineering.
Inventor provides professional grade product development workfows enabling you to explore your ideas before they’re even built. It’s a way for team members to connect and collaborate across disciplines. And it’s a way for individuals and companies of all sizes to get great products to market faster than ever before. From concept through design, manufacturing, marketing, and beyond, Autodesk Inventor streamlines the product development process from start to finish.
Inventor® CAD software provides professional-grade 3D mechanical design, documentation, and product simulation tools. Work efficiently with a powerful blend of parametric, direct, freeform, and rules-based design capabilities.

Inventor includes topology optimization tools for the optimization and lightweighting of your design. Shape generator provides an intelligent strategy for coming up with the best design possible by removing unnecessary geometry from your model that doesn’t contribute to the overall stiffness. It is based on loading conditions and the target weight requirements for your design.
Autodesk Inventor is tightly integrated with Autodesk Vault, enabling the efficient and secure exchange of design data and promoting early collaboration between design and manufacturing workgroups.
AnyCAD technology enables collaboration in a multi-CAD environment by providing an associative connection with STEP, CATIA, SolidWorks, NX, Solid Edge, PTC Creo, Wildfire, Autodesk Alias, and AutoCAD directly to Inventor without file translation.
There is a growing demand for engineering organizations to get design data to manufacturing more efficiently. Inventor provides model-based definition for adding all necessary fabrication instruction information directly to the 3D model. This eliminates the need for a traditional 2D drawing used by CNC programmers for tolerances and surface finish on the design.
