AutoDXF is an add-in for Autodesk® Inventor® that simplifies the workflow with assemblies that contain sheet metal parts. It allows you to easily collect all sheet metal components, automatically create and preview flat patterns, export the list of sheet metal parts to Word, identify any issues with flat patterns and batch export them to highly customizable DXF or DWG files.

Please install AutoDXF v5 to use with Autodesk® Inventor® releases 2022 to 2024.
