Autodesk Product Design and Manufacturing Collection

Autodesk Product Design and Manufacturing Collection

The Autodesk Product Design and Manufacturing Collection allows you to solve problems efficiently with a powerful set of engineering applications. It offers extended capabilities for Inventor and AutoCAD, built for engineers who design complex products, equipment and systems.

How are the Collection products integrated?

Products are fully integrated into Inventor. These extend the modelling toolset with advanced simulation, CAM, tolerance analysis, factory design and automated nesting.
