AutoDesk Inventor and SolidWorks are the most commonly
used CAD software in the industry. They are all state-of-the-art
parametric based CAD software and they deliver the best value in
2D and 3D design for the manufacturing industry. The association between
3-D parametric models of parts, assemblies, and 2-D drawings is
one of the best features on these programs. Modification in 3D parts,
assemblies or 2D drawings will automatically update associated environment.
This helps designers create design data more quickly, share design
data more easily, and manage software more efficiently. This is
an important feature that introduces high levels of performance
in the engineering world of CAD/CAM/CAE, particularly when working
on large assemblies.
AutoCAD Inventor Series
Autodesk Inventor can open AutoCAD, AutoCAD® Mechanical, Autodesk
Mechanical Desktop DWG files and convert their files into 3D Autodesk
Inventor files almost instantly. This also means you have all
the functionality of AutoCAD and AutoCAD Mechanical Desktop and
Autodesk Inventor right at your fingertips.

functions and environment is similar to Microsoft Windows such as
drag-and-drop, point-and-click, and cut-and-paste. If you know Microsoft
Windows, you’re well on your way to designing with SolidWorks.
Familiarity with Windows functions allows you to become productive
in hours, proficient within weeks. You will be able to create
3D models from existing 2D data with the best available transition
tools. In addition you can enjoy unmatched design communication
capabilities, including eDrawings, a breakthrough in sharing 2D
and 3D product design information.
