What’s New in Inventor for 2017

  • Improved Shape Generator tool
  • Reference Model Support
  • Better Access to Cross-Part References
  • Model PDF Export


Shape Generator
Use the shape generation tools to explore more design possibilities early in the design stage. Define the basic shape and function for a part or design, and Inventor provides a form that’s optimized for stiffness and weight.

Parametric Modelling
Intuitively model parts using parametric modeling tools in Autodesk Inventor Professional:

  • Use marking menus to access commands right at your cursor
  • Create parameters and dimensions as you sketch
  • Dynamically size 3D objects, fillets, and chamfers
  • Iterate on your design using tools to quickly identify existing features in the model history and view parent/child relationships

Assembly Modelling
Quickly assemble your products to assess fit and function. Identify interferences, create renderings and simulate the performance of the assembled parts.

Drawing Creation
Create associative drawings as native DWG files in Inventor Professional or AutoCAD. Modify dimensions in the drawing view to drive a change to the 3D model and more.

Flexible Modelling
Use the right modeling tool for every job. Model the way you want:

  • Parametric modeling: Define relationships between features and components in your model
  • Freeform modeling: Create complex, organic shapes using T-Splines technology
  • Direct modeling: Make fast edits to your model with the simple push/pull controls

Mechanical Concept and Layout Design
Open AutoCAD DWG™ files directly inside Inventor as the basis for your 3D model.

Plastic Parts Design
Design and analyze your plastic parts. With the design tools in Inventor for plastic parts, you can:

  • Sculpt complex shapes using freeform modeling, based on T-Splines technology
  • Create common types of geometry, such as bosses, ribs, and grilles
  • Identify potential quality issues in your parts, using plastic flow analysis, based on Moldflow technology

Sheet Metal Design
Design complex sheet metal products that conform to BIM and your company’s standards. Our sheet metal design tools help you:

  • Convert your 2D sheet metal designs into 3D models or create it from scratch
  • Create folds, hems, and flanges to your specification

Automated Product Configuration
We take complex programming out of setting up and deploying your product configurator. Drag and drop code from our huge library of code snippets and select parameters and rules from a list and add them to a form—no programming needed.

Part and Assembly Design Automation
Create reusable, configurable parts (iParts), product features (iFeatures), or assemblies (iAssemblies) by defining the 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 Frame Design
Simplify the design of structural frames with automated commands. Use the specialized frame design tools to:

  • Insert frame members from a library of thousands of standard profiles
  • Offset or rotate the frame profile as you wish, relative to a selected line
  • Apply trims and end treatments to multiple frame components at once

Electromechanical Design
Connect 3D models of electronic components to their 2D schematic counterparts.Changes are updated in both Inventor Professional and AutoCAD Electrical, so your teams are always in sync.

Automated Tube and Pipe Design
Use a combination of automated tools and full-control design functions in Inventor Professional to:

  • Select a predefined tube and pipe style from the library or create a custom style
  • Define routes interactively inside the model or use an existing 3D sketch
  • Create flexible hose runs that automatically follow the shortest path possible
  • Edit existing runs, no matter how they were generated

3D PDF Export
Export your 3D designs into a 3D PDF format, so anyone can view your 3D design with Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Cloud-Based 3D Design Reviews
Share lightweight versions of your 3D designs in the cloud. Reviewers don’t need a login to view, and they can’t alter your 3D source file.

Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Interoperability
Integrate your electronics and mechanical designs into a single, complete definition of your product.

Work with Non-Native Data
With AnyCAD technology, your designs in Inventor point to the latest updates in your non-native files, without rework or reimporting.

BIM Interoperability
Access tools specifically created to help prepare your 3D models for use in Building Information Modelling (BIM) systems.

Data Management
Manage all of your design data in a single spot. Robust search functionality makes it easy to find files. Quickly copy design files to use them in new or derivative designs.

Exploded Views and Animations
Use exploded views and animations of complex assemblies in your product documentation, manuals, and assembly instructions.

Dynamic Simulation
Evaluate the motion, speed, and acceleration of your design as forces are applied to it. Calculate the resulting forces that are generated by the movements your product will experience in the real world.

Stress Analysis
Run quick checks on parts or perform in-depth analysis of the entire product at any stage, including:

  • Carry over the model, materials, and contacts from the design environment
  • Apply loads and constraints by selecting the surfaces in your model
  • Automatically detect contacts between parts

Visualisation and Rendering
Show how your product will look with visualization and rendering tools. Choose from a variety of styles inside the design environment:

  • Use one of the default shaded, wireframe, monochrome, or illustration modes
  • Use ray tracing to get the best possible rendering


Combining training and learning, together with your software is essential. The individual or team that drives the design process must have the highest level of BIM knowledge and product training so the business can leverage its full potential.
