  • BIM interoperability

    Convert configurable 3D CAD models into BIM objects.

  • Flexible modeling

    Use the right modeling tool for every job with parametric, freeform, and direct modeling tools.

  • Direct modeling

    Use easy push/pull controls to move, rotate, resize, or scale features from imported geometries.

  • Freeform modeling

    Freely sculpt the shape of your design by moving points, edges, and faces.

  • Mechanical concept and layout design

    Open DWG™ files directly inside Inventor as the basis for your 3D model.

  • Plastic parts design

    Design and analyze plastic parts with purpose-built tools in Inventor.

  • Component generators and calculators

    Use built-in calculators to inform the design of common joints such as welds, clamps, and press fits.

  • Tube and pipe design

    Use a combination of automated tools and full-control design functions in Inventor to build tube and pipe runs.

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 and 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.
