Autodesk Product Design & Manufacturing Collection

What is the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection?

The collection is a powerful set of applications that provides extended capabilities to Inventor and AutoCAD for engineers who design complex and custom products, equipment, and systems.

  • Extend Inventor with add-ins for tolerance analysis, simulation, and production layout
  • Use connected products for 2D drafting, large-scale design review, and visualization
  • Connect to Fusion 360 to access next-generation capabilities and collaboration
