Design Automation Tools in Inventor
Move beyond 2D drafting and 3D modeling with the design automation tools in Autodesk® Inventor® software. Radically accelerate design by working with parts based on mechanical relationships rather than geometric descriptions (lines, arcs, and circles) and constraints.
Focus on the Function
Don't waste time on manual, burdensome geometry creation—let the software do the geometry for you. Inventor combines an intuitive 3D mechanical design environment for creating parts and assemblies with specialized design tools that enable engineers to focus on design function.
Inventor software automates the advanced geometry creation of intelligent components, such as plastic parts, steel frames, rotating machinery, tube and pipe runs, and electrical cable and wire harnesses. Inventor helps reduce the geometry burden so you can rapidly build and refine digital prototypes that validate design functions and help minimize manufacturing costs.
User-friendly tools for rules-based design and automation make it easier for design professionals to capture design intent and automate common tasks by creating "smart parts" that can embed higher levels of design intelligence directly into an Inventor digital prototype.
According to a recent benchmark report by Technicom, Autodesk Inventor software ranked significantly ahead of the competition in the Design Automation category with one capability where Inventor clearly stood alone...rules-based design.
