System requirements for Inventor 2013

March 18, 2012

With an impending release of Autodesk Inventor 2013, here are the system requirements for this new version. From what I can see, they are quite similar to the previous version 2012 so there are no surprises this time:

  • Windows 7 (SP1) (32-bit or 64-bit) Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, or Enterprise edition (recommended; Win7-64 recommended for large assemblies), Windows XP Professional (SP3), or Windows XP Professional x64 Edition (SP2); no Vista!
  • Intel Pentium 4, 2 GHz or faster; Intel Xeon, Intel Core, AMD Athlon 64, or AMD Opteron or later processor
  • 2 GB RAM (min. 1 GB for Inventor LT; 8 GB for complex models – more than 1.000 parts)
  • Microsoft Direct3D 10 (recommended) or Direct3D 9 capable graphics card
  • 1,280 x 1,024 or higher screen resolution
  • Internet connection for web downloads and Subscription Aware access
  • Adobe® Flash® Player 10
  • Microsoft Mouse-compliant pointing device
  • Internet Explorer 6.x through 9
  • Excel 2003 through 2010 for iFeatures, iParts, iAssemblies, thread customization, and spreadsheet-driven designs
  • Microsoft .Net Framework 4.0

Autodesk Inventor 2013 free (for Mechanical users)

March 2, 2012

We have been informed that our AutoCAD Mechanical (with subscription) will be changed to Autodesk Product Design Suite 2013 this year – a gift similar to that from the last year. The Product Design Suite will include both AutoCAD Mechanical 2013 and Autodesk Inventor 2013! So we will get Inventor 2013 for free. This is a welcomed way for us to increase the number of Inventor seats without any investment.

Plus we get Autodesk Showcase (also part of the Suite) that seems to more and more a better and easier way to visualize 3D designs that using 3ds Max or Inventor Studio.

Thank you in advance, Autodesk!
