Inventor 2017 is built to serve the expanding role of the modern professional
engineer. Core mechanical design tools are better than ever, with new features
that help you design faster and optimize performance from the outset. Integrated
communication tools help you connect with anyone on the project team,
regardless of their role, company, or location. And new interoperability tools pull
data together from virtually any discipline or software so you can build a single,
complete definition of your product.
