Autodesk Inventor, developed by Autodesk Inc., is one of the world’s fastest growing solid modeling software. It is a parametric feature-based solid modeling tool that not only unites the 3D parametric features with 2D tools but also addresses every design-through-manufacturing process. The adaptive technology of this solid modeling tool allows you to handle extremely large assemblies with tremendous ease. Based mainly on the feedback of the users of solid modeling, this tool is known to be remarkably user-friendly and it allows you to be productive from day one.
This solid modeling tool allows you to easily import the AutoCAD, AutoCAD Mechanical, Mechanical Desktop, and other related CAD files with an amazing compatibility. Moreover, the parametric features and assembly parameters are retained when you import the Mechanical Desktop files in Autodesk Inventor.
The drawing views that can be generated using this tool include orthographic view, isometric view, auxiliary view, section view, detailed view, and so on. You can use predefined drawing standard files for generating the drawing views. Moreover, you can retrieve the model dimensions or add reference dimensions to the drawing views whenever you want. The bidirectional associative nature of this software ensures that any modification made in the model is automatically reflected in the drawing views. Similarly, any modifications made in the dimensions in the drawing views are automatically reflected in the model.
