    Who else is the Factory Design Utilities software useful for, besides factory planners? With the integration of Factory Design Utilities inside the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection, everyone has access to this effective tool to layout spaces with Inventor assets. Aside from the usual approach of planning factories, we will look at examples from trade fairs, retail environments, event planning, playgrounds, cafeterias, and others. We will begin with the asset creation in Inventor software and the space layout in 2D in AutoCAD software. Combined, we will then move to the Factory Design Utilities and understand how these 3 tools can be used in conjunction. We can then explore our layout with Navisworks software to visualize the layouts we create.
