Automation tools help you work more efficiently, so you can focus on greater engineering tasks.

What is design automation?

Design automation lets you capture and reuse engineering knowledge and intent. Automation not only helps reduce errors and time spent on tedious, repetitive modeling tasks, but it can also be scaled to streamline downstream development processes.

Benefits of Design Automation

  • Design more efficiently
  • Rapidly configure products to spec
  • Accelerate handoff to manufacturing

Design & Sales Automation Products

Autodesk Inventor
Professional-grade product design and engineering tools for 3D mechanical design, simulation, visualization, and documentation.

Autodesk Inventor iLogic
Enables rules-driven design, providing a simple way to capture and reuse your work. Use iLogic to standardize and automate design processes and configure your virtual products.

Autodesk Forge
Access design and engineering data in the cloud with the Forge platform. Whether you want to automate processes, connect teams and workflows, or visualize your data – you can now create those applications and so much more using Forge APIs.

Practical applications of design automation

Design automation can mature from automating basic parameters to full-scale product configuration. Setup can be as simple or complex as your current needs demand. Learn how iLogic Technology, found in Autodesk Inventor, lets engineers easily use rule-based design without complex coding.
