What's new Hole command Get a streamlined, personalized workflow with fewer clicks, increasing speed and productivity. Shared view collaboration Collaborate on your models or designs online. Anyone can review and comment on shared views in the Autodesk viewer. Performance improvements Do more in less time with performance improvements in part modeling, assembly work, and drawing documentation.
Sheet metal for manufacturing Prepare designs for manufacturing with additional corner relief options that are more suitable for laser-cut parts. Model-based definition enhancements Enable face status coloring for visual feedback as you fully constrain your model.
Get improved 3D annotation callouts for hole quantity. Improved part modeling workflows With 3D part modeling and sketching enhancements, save time by creating an inverted fillet instead of an extrude or sweep feature. Assembly improvements Explore customer-requested improvements to assemblies for constraints, tube and pipe, and frame generator.
Features Shape Generator Create and evaluate high-performing design options in minutes. Parametric modeling Create parameters as you sketch and dynamically size 3D objects. Focus on your design, not the interface. Assembly modeling Put your model together in fewer steps. Drawing creation Quickly create clear, accurate, detailed drawings.
Work with non-native data Maintain an associative link to non-native CAD data. Automated frame design Quickly design and test structural frames. Flexible modeling Use the right modeling tool for every job with parametric, freeform, and direct modeling tools. Freeform modeling Freely sculpt the shape of your design by moving points, edges, and faces. Plastic parts design Design and analyze plastic parts with purpose-built tools in Inventor.
Automated product configuration Easily set up and deploy complex product configurations. Part and assembly design automation Create reusable, configurable parts, product features, or assemblies by defining variable parameters.
Component generators and calculators Use built-in calculators to inform the design of common joints such as welds, clamps, and press fits. Automated tube and pipe design Use a combination of automated tools and full-control design functions in Inventor to build tube and pipe runs Cloud-based 3D design reviews Share lightweight versions of your 3D designs in the cloud.
Printed circuit board interoperability Integrate your electronics and mechanical designs into a single, complete definition of your product.
Data management Robust search function makes it easy to find files and quickly copy design files. Exploded views and animations Use exploded views and animations of complex assemblies in product documentation, manuals, and assembly instructions. Dynamic simulation Apply forces to evaluate the motion, speed, and acceleration of your design.
Stress analysis Run quick checks on parts or perform in-depth analysis of the entire product at any stage. Visualization and rendering Show how your product will look with visualization and rendering tools.
Off course the problem is the chicken egg thing where the 1. 5 billion users need to be re-introduced to modern apps in a way that make sense so that they start embracing them. Why would they embrace them.
