Autodesk Inventor Nastran

More options with FEM simulation

Autodesk Inventor Nastran

Autodesk Inventor Nastran gives users a wide range of tools for the finite element method (FEM). Integrated simulation tools help reduce physical testing and thereby speed up product development.

More Options With FEM Simulation

Autodesk Nastran provides simulation capabilities in a CAD-integrated process and enables different analysis techniques such as linear and nonlinear stress, dynamics and heat transfer.
The FEM simulation tool is fully compatible with Autodesk Inventor, ensuring seamless data transfer from CAD models to CAE environments. This means you no longer need individual platform-specific simulation technologies.

Autodesk Inventor Nastran is now only available as part of the Autodesk Product Design & Manufacturing Collection and no longer as a stand-alone product.
