Shape Generator

INVENTOR, INVENTOR PROFESSIONAL

Use the shape generation tools to explore more design possibilities early in the design stage. Define the basic shape and function for a part or design, and Inventor provides a form that's optimized for stiffness and weight.

Shape Generator tools let you:

  • Apply loads and constraints that reflect real-world conditions for how your product will be used.
  • Control how and where geometry is optimized, maintaining minimum material thickness.
  • Specify keep-out zones and preserve symmetry.
  • Use the generated shape as reference geometry inside the design environment.
