Inventor Simplification is a free*technology preview of a new and easy way to simplify parts and assemblies for downstream consumption. The shrinkwrap feature was added to Autodesk®Inventor® software several releases ago. Since that time we've collected feedback on various ways to improve the workflow. We think we have a much better way to simplify models and wanted to share it with you as soon as possible.
Whether you need to simplify a fully detailed model to import into Revit or remove intellectual property (IP), Inventor Simplification can help. Inventor Simplification is intended to be very interactive with greater flexibility than current tools.
Visual selection of components to keep/remove
Replace fully detailed components with resizable primitive shapes
Fill holes with greater control
