Autodesk Inventor

Autodesk Inventor 2015Autodesk® 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 build better products, reduce development costs, and get to market faster.

Notes
  1. Autodesk® Inventor® 2015 software application is provided both as 32-bit applications and as 64-bit applications for installation and use on the corresponding operating system only. Autodesk® Vault Explorer 2015 is a 32-bit application for installation and use on either a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system.
  2. 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.
  3. Autodesk Inventor LT 2015 is optimized to take advantage of the SSE2 extended instruction sets supported on Pentium 4, AMD Athlon 64, and AMD Opteron processors. Inventor LT 2015 will not install on computers that do not support SSE2. Several utilities are available on the Internet that report CPUID including supported instructions sets.
  4. 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).
  5. Please refer to the Autodesk published graphics card information.
  6. Autodesk Inventor LT 2015 is available only on DVD (or electronic download in some situations). DVD-ROM drive is not required if installing using software download methods.
  7. 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.
  8. Provided by the Autodesk product installer.
  9. Windows XP® Professional 32-bit is not recommended for Autodesk® Inventor LT™ or Autodesk® Inventor.
