    Parametric and direct modeling

    will both remain relevant

    Why both?

    Because customers shouldn’t have to choose.

    When Customers Need Parametric Modeling

    • Knowledge capture allows reuse over life cycle

    • Iterative optimization of design

    • Product family configurations

    When Customers Need Direct Modeling

    • Modification of non-native data

    • “What if” scenarios and unique design changes

    • Rapid expression of design ideas

    Autodesk delivers direct ANDparametric modeling with Inventor Fusion technology

    Inventor Fusion Technology

    Standalone technology preview delivers:

    • Unrivaled ease of use

    • Rapid design changes without limitations

    • Modify Non Native Data

    • Seamless direct and parametric workflows with a single digital model*
