  • Free-form tools
    Explore an alternate modeling approach by creating free-form shapes with tools and direct manipulation. Start with an existing design created with parametric modeling tools. Then, then add free-form into the design. Use the Freeform Match Edge command to modify a free-form body to match to existing model or sketch geometry. Model concepts to create rough shapes where size and shape are not yet established.
  • Direct Edit functionality
    Parametrically move, size, rotate, and delete imported solid models or native Inventor 3D CAD software files. Use Direct Edit to quickly and precisely change parametric/feature part geometry in models with complex histories. Change imported base solid data and explore redesign possibilities early in the process, before you commit to a final design.
  • Startup and learning experience
    Improved tools support an easier, more intuitive learning experience in the Inventor Home environment. Inventor Home functions as your personal dashboard and provides a single, central, in-product location for learning and help content. The Tutorial Learning Path guides you through the most common workflows to provide a solid foundation. New interactive tutorials cover the basics of Sketch, Parts, and Drawings.
  • 3D mechanical CAD
    Design mechanical parts in 3D with powerful, part-level parametric modeling. Create simple and complex parts quickly. Visualize and verify part designs in 3D to avoid costly errors—before building expensive physical prototypes. Then, generate photorealistic renderings of 3D part models to communicate design intent to customers and other reviewers. Reduce rework and cycle times to bring better products to market sooner.
  • DWG file format
    Share 3D part designs and 2D to 3D multiCAD design data with customers and suppliers without relying on separate file translation software. Import, create, modify, and export 3D part models in common file formats to streamline communication with your supply chain. As projects progress and downstream users need production-ready DWG™ drawings, Inventor LT can generate production-ready drawings that update automatically whenever the model changes.
  • Import and export third-party 3D CAD data
    Work with third-party 3D CAD data, including non-native assemblies from customers and suppliers. Import and export 3D part models in common file formats without relying on separate file translation software. With Inventor LT, you can easily share 3D design data with customers and suppliers, improving communication with your extended supply chain.
