What’s new in Inventor Professional 2018

New features in Inventor Professional 2018 improve design workflows with increased performance, expanded inter-operability, and new professional-grade design tools.

  • Video: See 3D model documented with MBD

    Model-based definition

    Use 3D annotations to add tolerance dimensions, notes, and other engineering details to the 3D model.

  • Video: Your ideas help make Inventor better

    Top Inventor Ideas

    With your help from Inventor Ideas, the Inventor experience is updated and improved every release.

  • Video: Improved performance speeds up the design process

    Improved performance

    Improvements include faster graphics interaction and faster open time for large files, speeding up the design process.

  • Video: Good interoperability is a key part of efficient workflows

    Enhanced file support with AnyCAD

    AnyCAD adds new and enhanced file support. It also allows forward compatibility for Inventor 2017 to 2018. (video: 2:20 min.)

Product design and modeling

  • Video: Explore more design possibilities

    Shape Generator

    Create and evaluate high-performing design options in minutes.

  • Video: Intuitively model parts using parametric modeling tools

    Parametric modeling

    Create parameters as you sketch and dynamically size 3D objects. Focus on your design, not the interface.

  • Video: Quickly assemble your products to assess fit and function

    Assembly modeling

    Put your model together in fewer steps.

  • Video: Create associative drawings as native DWG files in Inventor or AutoCAD

    Drawing creation

    Quickly create clear, accurate, detailed drawings.

Collaboration and design automation

  • Video: Export your 3D designs into a 3D PDF

    3D PDF export

    Create 3D documentation rich in visual and product information that anyone can view.

  • Video: If there’s a change to the non-native file, Inventor automatically updates your design

    Work with non-native data

    Maintain an associative link to non-native CAD data.

  • Video: Simplify the design of structural frames with automated commands

    Automated frame design

    Quickly design and test structural frames.

  • Video: Connect 3D models of electronic components to their 2D schematic

    Electromechanical design

    Link your Inventor and AutoCAD Electrical data.


  • Flexible modeling

    Use the right modeling tool for every job with parametric, freeform, and direct modeling tools.

  • Direct modeling

    Use easy push/pull controls to move, rotate, resize, or scale features from imported geometries.

  • Freeform modeling

    Freely sculpt the shape of your design by moving points, edges, and faces.

  • Mechanical concept and layout design

    Open DWG™ files directly inside Inventor as the basis for your 3D model.

  • Plastic parts design

    Design and analyze plastic parts with purpose-built tools in Inventor.

  • Sheet metal design

    Design complex sheet metal products that conform to your company’s standards.


  • Automated product configuration

    Easily set up and deploy complex product configurations.

  • Part and assembly design automation

    Create reusable, configurable parts, product features, or assemblies by defining 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 tube and pipe design

    Use a combination of automated tools and full-control design functions in Inventor to build tube and pipe runs.


  • Cloud-based 3D design reviews

    Share lightweight versions of your 3D designs in the cloud.

  • Printed circuit board interoperability

    Integrate your electronics and mechanical designs into a single, complete definition of your product.

  • BIM interoperability

    Access tools specifically created to help prepare your 3D models for use in BIM systems.

  • Data management

    Robust search function makes it easy to find files and quickly copy design files. Connects to Vault (included in Product Design Collection).

Simulation and visualization

  • Exploded views and animations

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

  • Dynamic simulation

    Apply forces to evaluate the motion, speed, and acceleration of your design.

  • Stress analysis

    Run quick checks on parts or perform in-depth analysis of the entire product at any stage.

  • Visualization and rendering

    Show how your product will look with visualization and rendering tools.
