Autodesk Inventor

In the field of student training, students and employees of the CAU can, under certain circumstances, install free full versions of Autodesk Inventor Professional.

  • Network installation is easiest on computers at the Faculty of Engineering. This version is also preferred for reasons of smooth cooperation. An Autodesk account is not mandatory.
  • User Installation is recommended, if you want to install the software at home. It is much more complex to install. An Autodesk account is mandatory.
