    Factory asset creation & management

  • Streamlined asset migration New

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    Reuse existing CAD assets. Easily convert previously generated 2D layouts, blocks, and 3D drawings into factory assets, and take advantage of powerful layout automation tools.    

  • Flexible asset properties New

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    Customize and augment assets with relevant manufacturing information. Use factory asset properties to track asset identifiers, machine costs, energy consumption, links to maintenance information, and more.

  • Vault enhancements New

    ULTIMATE

    New Vault features provide flexible and enhanced data management and storage capabilities, including additional uses/where used, search, and query functions.

  • Large factory asset library

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    Rely on a large library of assets, such as conveyors, CNC machines, safety fences, storage racks, and more. Accessing these assets can make it easier to build layouts with commonly used factory equipment.  

  • Asset publishing and sharing

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    Easily create, publish, and share smart parametric assets in the cloud for use in factory layout and factory equipment designs. Share published assets with other members of your local team. Or make the asset public and share it with the worldwide factory design community. Factory equipment vendors can increase market presence by placing designs directly into the hands of factory designers.

  • Create assets from AutoCAD blocks

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    Take existing AutoCAD blocks from legacy AutoCAD drawings and publish them as 2D assets. Then, bring these 2D assets into Inventor to view their 3D representations. Efficiently reusing older designs can reduce the time it takes to update existing layouts.

  • Custom assets for layouts

    PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    Publish smart assets, streamline projects that require third-party CAD data, and keep 2D/3D models in sync. Create accurate digital prototypes of custom assets with built-in intelligence, such as connectors and landing surfaces that enable easy placement in your layout environment. You can even include models from suppliers in your layout, regardless of CAD format, shrink-wrapping and stripping them of important intellectual property.

  • Multiple variant asset publishing

    STANDARD, PREMIUM, ULTIMATE

    Publish factory assets with multiple design variants and fewer mistakes. Establishing valid asset variants can enable downstream users to comply with company standards and design practices, minimizing the mistakes that come with invalid asset use.
