Extend Digital Prototyping to Your Product Documentation Teams
Even non-CAD users can produce the views they need—directly from the digital model—without relying on engineers or graphic designers. When you use Digital Prototyping for product documentation, you can:

  • Get more from your investment in 3D
  • Reduce documentation and service costs
  • Give customers more intuitive, visually rich documentation, improving their experience with your products
  • Improve maintenance and service processes and communication with Autodesk® PLM 360 product lifecycle management

In a Digital Prototyping workflow, you can develop product documentation even as you're still designing. When you make changes to the digital model, documentation can be quickly revised and republished, speeding your time to market.

"Within 5 minutes of installing Autodesk® Inventor® Publisher, one of my teammates had created a 10-second animation showing two parts of the laptop coming together. The next day, he had an animation of the whole laptop being disassembled."
