With Autodesk’s Digital Prototyping tools, industrial machinery manufacturers can quickly develop innovative designs. Because the tools also give a more complete understanding of risk, total cost, and maintenance requirements, you can proceed with confidence. You can also respond quickly to customer requests while showing your ability to deliver superior results with sales/design automation.
Contact us today and let us show you how Autodesk’s Digital Prototyping solutions are supported in all Autodesk manufacturing software right from the start, with open standards, scalable deployment, and cost-effective purchasing options.
We’ve always actually been a big believer in reinvesting in our company, and in technology. We did it with the software for the overall company, the Enterprise Resource Planning system that we have in place, for engineering with the AutoCAD and 3D Inventor that we now have in place. It’s allowed us to build bigger, faster, higher output machines and they’ve helped us to keep on the cutting edge and build the best machines in the world right now.”

Deliver quality products faster with an optimized process
Streamline your entire product development process with the Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping, which lets you explore your ideas before they’re even built. Gather design data from all phases of the process into a single digital model. Validate it against product requirements. Reference it as you build deliverables for release.
Regardless of your role or industry, you can explore, communicate, refine, and implement ideas in ways that streamline every step, from start to finish.
Parametric modeling and so much more
Build large assemblies and model complex parts with freeform, direct, and parametric modeling tools in Inventor® and Inventor® Professional 3D CAD software.
Save time on designs with automation tools
Eliminate routine modeling tasks with the design automation tools in Inventor® mechanical design and 3D CAD software.
Put your CAD data to work for you
Work with non-native CAD data from any CAD application. Collaborate with suppliers and vendors, and share designs with customers who use BIM.
Student and Educational licensing is available to help students build valuable workplace skills and to prepare them for rewarding careers in architecture, engineering, and the digital arts.
Students and faculty can download free* Autodesk software for personal educational purposes. Student licenses incorporate all the software functionality of our professional licenses, but include a print banner or watermark on output indicating the design was created using a student license version. Autodesk student licenses are available as Stand-Alone only and may not be used in the classroom or lab for instructional purposes, or for commercial or for-profit purposes.
For more information, visit our Education Community.
Educational institutions, students and faculty can receive affordable pricing on a variety of Educational licensing options. Autodesk® Education Suites can be purchased as Stand-Alone, Multi-seat Stand-Alone or Network licenses and give academic institutions access to comprehensive software products and tools. Educational licenses cannot be used for commercial, professional or for-profit purposes.
For more information, visit our Educators page.
*Free Autodesk software is for personal use for education purposes and is subject to the terms and conditions of the end-user license agreement that accompanies download of the software.
Multi-user access is a good choice for companies with multiple teams that need access to the same software deployed through network licenses.
Network licenses aren’t assigned to individual users and can be shared. A subscription with multi-user access supports the use of Autodesk products up to a maximum number of users, or seats, connected to a server network.
The products can be installed on as many computers as you want. However, you can use the software simultaneously only on the number of purchased seats. For example, if you have 6 subscriptions seats and 8 users, all users have access, but only 6 can use the product at any one time. Because you can install the products on more systems than the number of subscription seats purchased, you get true floating licenses across your entire organisation. There is no internet connection required for Multi-user licenses to operate.
Single-user access is a good choice for organisations that need one or more stand-alone licenses.
These licenses are assigned to individual users and can’t be shared. Customers must connect to the internet every 30 days to validate their Autodesk ID.
These subscriptions cost less than subscriptions with multi-user access. You can sign in to your Autodesk Account from anywhere, and download and install the software assigned to you from any device. So, for example, you can use your Autodesk product on your work computer and also on your personal computer at home.
