Autodesk Inventor Nesting

Inventor Nesting

Inventor® Nesting software which is integrated within Inventor Professional turns sheet metal parts into nesting tables.

By optimising the nest table, companies reduce raw material costs and can compare nesting studies to better understand cost and choose the right nesting study. 

  • Have multiple material and packaging options by generating multiple sheet nests in a single study 

  • Maximise job profitability by comparing costs and the efficiency associated with nesting studies variations.

  • Ensure consistent grain direction on all parts to prevent cracking in subsequent bending operations by specifying allowable orientations.

Product Design & Manufacturing Collection Tolerance Analysis

product design and manufacturing collection 600 Moving at the Speed of Business

Autodesk Product Design & Manufacturing Collection Tolerance Analysis

Inventor Tolerance Analysis: CAD-embedded tolerance stackup analysis software. Available only in the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection.

Overview

Inventor® Tolerance Analysis software is designed to help Inventor users make more informed decisions while specifying manufacturing tolerances.

This allows users to:

  • Accurately calculate the cumulative effects of geometric dimensions and tolerances for all models included in the stackup loop

  • Verify manufacturing tolerances for consistent fit and maximum part interchangeability during early design stages

  • Communicate analysis results and cost-control efforts to manufacturing and quality engineers

Why use Inventor Tolerance Analysis?

Save on excessive machining costs

Save time and money by avoiding high-precision tolerances that add unnecessary costs and effort to your machining workflow.

Confirm that your components will fit together

Verify the fit of the components in your assemblies using tools that are fully integrated in Inventor.

Collaborate better with automated reports

Communicate analysis results and cost-control efforts to manufacturing and quality engineers.

Optimize assembly fit with tolerance stackup analysis

Reduce tolerance issues during manufacturing by running an analysis of the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) in a 3D model.

Product Design Manufacturing Collection tolerance analysis stack up Moving at the Speed of Business

Generate advanced statistical results

Calculate the worst-case, RSS, and statistical results of the analysis. Report metrics for statistical results such as Cpk, Σ (Sigma), DPMO, or % Yield.
