Autodesk Inventor 2016Autodesk® Inventor® software, part of the Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping, takes manufacturers beyond 3D to Digital Prototyping by giving engineers a comprehensive and flexible set of tools for 3D mechanical design, simulation, tooling, visualization, and documentation. With Inventor software, engineers can integrate 2D Autodesk® AutoCAD® drawings and 3D data into a single digital model, creating a virtual representation of the final product that enables them to validate the form, fit, and function of the product before it is ever built. Digital Prototyping with Inventor software enables you to design, visualize, and simulate products digitally, helping you to reduce development costs, get to market faster and make great products.

New Features

  • AnyCAD
    AnyCAD is integrated file interoperability technologhy that provides direct associative capabilities without the need for file translation. 

  • Sheet metal design
    Simplify sheet metal design and complex mechanical part design, and improve your productivity with Digital Prototyping. Inventor combines manufacturing information—such as punch tool parameters and custom bend tables—with an accurate 3D model of sheet metal folding.

  • Assembly design and ease of assembly
    Control data for large assembly designs so you can work on components for just part of the design. Define position and describe part motion in 1 step. Combine design accelerators with assembly tools to be sure that every part and component in an assembly design fits correctly. Accurately validate interference and mass properties to help produce quality products the first time. Quickly assemble individual parts and subassemblies to define the complete product structure.

  • Plastic part design
    Get maximum flexibility by combining native Inventor geometry with exterior surface models designed in Alias industrial design software. The relationship between Alias and Inventor can reduce time to market, enabling engineers to start detailed designs earlier and mechanical engineers to easily incorporate changes from the industrial design team.

  • Tooling and mold design - Inventor Professional only
    Automate key aspects of injection mold design for plastic parts. Quickly create and validate complete mold designs, helping to reduce errors and improve mold performance. With its intuitive mold design workflow, Inventor guides you through the mold design process in a way that is natural for the experienced user and supportive for the novice.

  • Free-form modeling shape creation
    Model organic shapes and incorporate free-form and parametric workflows into a single model. These tools provide an alternate modeling approach to explore and create free-form shaped models using direct manipulation. Start with a free-form shape that best represents the desired geometry (box, sphere, cylinder, torus, or quadball). Then use the free-form editing tools to adjust the shape.

  • Integrated motion simulation - Inventor Professional only
    Use motion simulation software—not intuition—to support your design decisions. The motion simulation feature uses the assembly constraints in your 3D model to identify relevant rigid bodies, generate correct motion joints, and compute dynamic behavior. This functionality can help you quickly understand how the design behaves, including the position, velocity, and acceleration of moving parts.

Notes
  1. Autodesk Inventor and Autodesk Vault must both be the same language on a given computer. English versions of these applications will run on any language operating system. Other language versions of these applications will run on operating systems of that same language.
  2. Autodesk Inventor LT 2016 is optimized to take advantage of the SSE2 extended instruction sets supported on Pentium 4, AMD Athlon 64, and AMD Opteron processors. Inventor LT 2016 will not install on computers that do not support SSE2. Several utilities are available on the Internet that report CPUID including supported instructions sets.
  3. Autodesk recommends settings which allow Microsoft Windows to manage virtual memory as needed. There should always be at least twice as much free hard disk space as system memory (RAM).
  4. Please refer to the Autodesk published graphics card information.
  5. DVD-ROM drive is not required if installing from USB or software download.
  6. The multimedia learning components of the Inventor Help system, such as the UI Video Tour, Command Reference, and Show Me animations, require Adobe Flash Player 10. If it is not already installed, you can download it from the Adobe website.
