Introduction to Inventor Now Available


Inventor Basics

Inventor is a parametric, feature-based system, allowing you to create 3D parts, assemblies, and 2D drawings. Parametric modeling allows for increased power and flexibility by setting up parameters and relationships with control over design intent. Design intent describes the way your design will behave based on your use of parameters with dimensions and relationships.

As a part of the Autodesk family, Inventor looks and feels similar to AutoCAD. Someone who already uses AutoCAD can leverage many of their 2D drawings in Inventor to streamline the process for creating accurate 3D models. Anyone designing or manufacturing mechanical components has a need for Inventor.
