Xometry Add-in for Autodesk Inventor

Never leave your favorite CAD workspace again to make your design a reality. Get DFM and pricing directly in Autodesk Inventor as you design.

What Is the Xometry Add-in for Autodesk Inventor?

First, you should know about Autodesk Inventor. This is a program with professional-grade 3D mechanical design, documentation, and product simulation tools. Autodesk Inventor combines parametric, direct, freeform, and rules-based design capabilities into a single powerful platform. 

Xometry’s add-in for Autodesk Inventor can be downloaded directly from the Xometry website via an MSI Installer. It allows engineers and designers to easily purchase custom manufactured parts from within their CAD workspace. The Xometry add-in analyzes the geometry of the CAD design, then allows the user to select the material, process, and quantity to get instant pricing and lead times. This efficient integration of custom manufacturing quotes allows engineers and designers to see the impact of any design decision on their budget and product development timeline. Users can click to finalize and securely purchase their custom parts from Xometry online.

To get started, view the Quick Start Guide, see the User Manual, or watch the video below.
