Make great products with professional-grade 3D CAD software for product design and engineering.

3D CAD Design and Engineering Tools

Autodesk® Inventor® is a professional grade design and engineering software. It is a complete solution for 3D mechanical design, simulation and automating design workflows as well as every day repetitive tasks that help you to make great products, cost-effectively, in less time.

What is Inventor?

Inventor takes you beyond 3D to Digital Prototyping by enabling you to produce an accurate 3D model that can help you design, visualize, and simulate your products before they are built.

CAD productivity and design communication tools can help you reduce errors, communicate more effectively, and deliver more innovative product designs faster. 

Design, Simulate, Automate, and Collaborate in Inventor

Satisfy demands for custom products and automated processes, and share timely feedback with built-in collaboration tools. 

Product Design
  • Shape Generator
    Create and evaluate high-performing design options in minutes.
  • Parametric modeling
    Focus on design as you create and edit your 3D models with an intuitive user interface.
  • Assembly modeling
    Your design go together and perform at the assembly level.
Collaboration & Design Automation
  • Shared view collaboration
    Collaborate on your models or designs online. Anyone can review and comment on shared views in the Autodesk viewer.
  • Work with non-native data
    Maintain an associative link to non-native CAD data.
  • Automated frame design
    Quickly design and test structural frames
  • Design automation
    Enable rapid assembly reconfigurations powered by iLogic.
  • Sheet metal
    Design and prepare complex sheet metal products for manufacturing.
  • Model-based definition
    Include manufacturing information in your 3D model for downstream applications.
  • Content center
    Choose your standard components from a comprehensive customizable library.
  • BIM interoperability Convert configurable 3D CAD models into BIM objects.
Connected data
  • Printed circuit board interoperability
    Integrate your electronics and mechanical designs into a single, complete definition of your product.
  • Data management
    Robust search function makes it easy to find files and quickly copy design files. Connects to Vault (included in Product Design & Manufacturing Collection).
Simulation & visualization
  • Exploded views and animations
    Use exploded views and animations of complex assemblies in product documentation, manuals, and assembly instructions.
  • Dynamic simulation
    Apply forces to evaluate the motion, speed, and acceleration of your design.
  • Stress analysis
    Run quick checks on parts or perform in-depth analysis of the entire product at any stage.
  • Visualization and rendering
    Show how your product will look with visualization and rendering tools.
