Autodesk Inventor has the tools available to increase your CAD productivity and improve design communication through the creation of a digital prototype. This digital prototype is a 3D CAD representation of the complete design, reducing the need to create costly physical prototypes. In doing so the Inventor digital prototype helps you to reduce design errors and improves validation of the form, fit, and function of a design. It also provides a platform to effectively communicate designs to stakeholders and deliver more ground-breaking product designs faster. Doing all this digitally saves time and money. The Inventor model can be manipulated as you work and makes use of both direct modelling and parametric workflows ensuring that you always have the right tool for the job. By using parametric design within Autodesk Inventor you are able to make design changes, reuse old designs and update existing designs effortlessly.
