Engineering productivity

2D/3D electrical components library

Add the Electrical Catalog Browser to Inventor 3D CAD software during installation to access 3D electrical parts.

Freeform modeling shape creation

Create organic shapes and incorporate freeform and parametric workflows in a single model.

These tools provide an alternate modeling approach to explore and create freeform-shaped models using direct manipulation. Start with a freeform shape that best represents the desired geometry (box, sphere, cylinder, torus, or quadball). Then use the freeform edit tools to adjust the shape.

Edit geometry directly

Parametrically move, size, rotate, and delete imported solid models or native Inventor files.

Use Direct Edit to:

Quickly and precisely change parametric/feature part geometry in models with complex histories.
Change imported base solid data.
Investigate redesign possibilities without commitment. Explore the redesign of parts in the context of the parent assembly, and align geometry on the active part with geometry from other nonassociative parts.

Customizable Inventor Home

Customize the new Inventor Home to easily access common tasks.

Inventor Home functions like a personal dashboard, providing:

Basic or full template display
Most recently used file list displaying rich information in the tooltip
Expanded list of recently used files
Ability to pin a file you're working on to make it easy to locate
Tabs at the bottom to switch to specific file areas
Fast Access to Team Web, Help, and the Tutorial learning path

Tutorial learning and search

Interactive tutorials teach the basics of sketches and parts, assemblies, and drawings.

Tutorials help new users experience a complete workflow from beginning to end and track their learning progress.

The enhanced search capability now provides results for commands, help articles, support content, blog, and discussion groups, as well as YouTube posts, with a single click.

3D mechanical

Product Design Suite provides an integrated set of engineering tools for defining your product’s physical characteristics.

3D part modeling

Inventor 3D CAD software uses direct manipulation part modeling for an uninterrupted design workflow for modeling parts and assemblies.

You can control all command inputs right at the point where you are directly affecting geometry. Dynamic input in the sketch environment helps you to sketch more freely and directly. The Assemble tool "snaps" components together quickly and accurately.

3D assembly design

Inventor 3D CAD software provides the tools to create, control, and manage data created by large complex assembly designs.

Work on only the components required to complete a particular part of the design. Define digital prototypes of large complex assemblies. Accurately validate interference and mass properties to help produce quality products the first time. Inventor combines design accelerators with assembly tools so you can be sure that every part and component in an assembly design fits correctly.

Large assembly performance

Inventor 3D CAD software includes Express Mode, which introduces a new way of working with large assemblies and dramatically reduces file open times.

Inventor also improves graphics performance for large assembly pan, zoom, and rotate in both Full and Express Modes.

Ease of assembly

Inventor uses a simple one-step process to fully define the position of components and describe part motion.

Quickly assemble individual parts and subassemblies to define the complete product structure.

Integrated electrical and mechanical design

Integrate electrical designs with cable and harness control systems using Inventor for routed systems, combined with AutoCAD Electrical software.

Incorporating cable and harness runs into your 3D digital prototype enables you to calculate accurate path lengths, avoid small-radius bends, and ensure that electrical components fit into the mechanical assembly before manufacturing.

Cable and harness design features include:

AutoCAD Electrical software
Functional harness design
Harness validation
Harness documentation
Automatic wire routing

Plastic part design

Get maximum flexibility by combining native Inventor geometry with exterior surface models designed with Alias.

The relationship between Alias and Inventor 3D CAD software reduces time to market, allowing engineers to start detailed designs earlier and mechanical engineers to easily incorporate changes from the industrial design team.

Plastic part design features include:

Advanced shape description
Import from Alias products
Sculpt tool
Surface quality analysis
Molded part definition
Technical plastic features
Rule fillets
Draft angle and cross section analysis

Rules-based design/automation

Fully integrated Inventor iLogic technology can dramatically simplify rules-based design, so that any Inventor user—with little or no programming experience—can capture and embed product engineering and knowledge directly into virtual models. The iCopy feature automates the process of copying components, so you can easily customize commonly used assemblies.

Tube and pipe runs

Inventor Professional provides rules-based routing tools that select the correct fittings and help ensure that the pipe run complies with your standards for segment length, round-off increments, and bend radius.

Tube and pipe design features include:

Pipe fittings library
Tube and pipe styles
Pipe run creation
Hygienic pipe runs
Flexible hose
Rigid tube routing
Tube and pipe documentation

Mold, and tool and die

To determine material flow rates and ideal gate locations, assess shrinkage, and establish process parameters, simulate and optimize your mold design before machining with the plastic flow analysis tools in Simulation Moldflow software.

Sketch constraint control (enhanced)

Get your sketches in shape faster and more easily with new constraint tools and settings.

With the new Relax Mode you can modify geometries that are already constrained. You gain greater control over constraints with improved display, inference, and delete options. Sketch constraints-related settings have also been reorganized into a single Constraint Settings command.
