Are factory or facility layouts a common part of your workflow? Factory Design Suite (FDS) allows you to import files from Autodesk’s comprehensive asset database, using either AutoCAD or Inventor Professional for your factory layouts.

Simply select the desired asset from the Asset Browser and place it in the desired location. In addition, assets can easily be re-positioned once they are loaded into a layout. This works the same with both Inventor and AutoCAD.
