Accelerate your product design and manufacturing processes
Get the ultimate set of engineering apps to tackle your most ambitious projects
The collection is an integrated set of professional-grade applications that connect everyone, from concept to production, with shared tools to streamline your product development process.
- Create high-performing product designs and production system layouts
- Extend product capabilities and prevent product failures
- Connect your team and your data from design to manufacture
See how the collection gives you the power to create your most ambitious ideas, collaborate more efficiently, automate busywork, and explore more design options than ever before.
From a single part to massive assemblies, intuitively model and document your products with professional-grade 3D parametric design capabilities and 2D drafting toolsets.
Conceptualize production line layouts using familiar 2D workflows that can be automatically converted into detailed 3D models, helping inform critical design decisions.
Clearly convey your design with high-fidelity imagery and animations generated directly from your 3D model for use in design reviews, documentation, and sales and marketing collateral.
Create efficient processes that help you seamlessly transition from design to manufacturing with integrated tools for generating multi-axis toolpaths and sheet metal nests.
Generative design capabilities let you create multiple, production-ready design options, and review tradeoffs in materials, performance, cost, and manufacturing processes.
Extend product capabilities, improve efficiency, and prevent failures with advanced performance simulation built on the Autodesk Nastran solver.
Remove bottlenecks in the process with discrete-event simulation capabilities, and in the installation using clash detection between the as-is state and proposed production line designs.
Balance mechanical fit and performance with the cost of tighter tolerances based on an analysis of the cumulative dimensional variation between mating geometry.
Combine the capabilities of 2D and 3D CAD to integrate electromechanical models, conceptualize designs, and speed up the creation of drawings and documentation.
Control your intellectual property in a single location, making it easy to collaborate with your colleagues. Securely share data externally to simplify and speed-up review cycles.
Reference models created in other CAD or BIM applications that update anytime the original files are changed. Prepare BIM objects of your product models for delivery to your clients.
Aggregate design data from multiple sources to perform reviews of large scale designs. Check for clashes, simulate installation, and centralize communication between stakeholders.
Create a custom product configurator using a powerful, simple-to-use automation engine that captures engineering knowledge, preserving your time for value-added projects.
Automate templates for parts, assemblies, and drawings to reduce errors, save time, and make it easy to follow company standards.
Speed up downstream processes by automating routine tasks involved in simulation setup in Inventor Nastran and toolpath strategies in Inventor CAM.
Generate multiple sheet nests to reduce raw material waste, and produce comparison reports to review overall efficiency, total cost, and machining time.
The PDM Collection includes the following core software, and much much more.
Tolerance stackup analysis software for evaluating the impact of dimensional variation.
True shape nesting software for Inventor to optimize yield from raw material.
Integrated 2.5- to 5-axis CAD/CAM programming solution for Inventor.
