Digitally signed app



With AutoDRAW you manage the drawing creation process of your design.


You can automatically create drawings for Autodesk® Inventor® parts and assemblies. AutoDRAW can detect the parts and assemblies for which you have not created the drawings and can help you create them using a template you define, automating processes as you go.


Select your main assembly and relax while AutoDRAW runs through all the models in your design and creates the missing drawings for you. Drawing Layouts can be generated and applied to the different types of models so that the correct drawing is generated always.

If you have made revision/design changes to your parts or assemblies, AutoDRAW will detect this and highlight the drawings which need to be updated.

The drawing layout can be customized for assemblies and part drawings.


The model grid can be customized to show the properties you want and the items on the grid can be filtered.


Inventor 2022 Model States feature is supported.


A new function to generate a single sheet metal flat pattern drawing for CNC / cutting purposes.


Post-Processing functions have been added to automate the creation of other files from your design’s models and drawings. These include PDF, DXF, DWG, and STEP files. The filename for these files can be customized.

    Alfredo Castillo | March 31, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I installed the trial version to see how fast and accurately it can produce drawings. I cant select a part or an assembly. How is this a trial if i cant even test it and see if it works.

    Pieter van der Westhuizen (Publisher) | April 02, 2020

    Hi sorry about your bad experience. Can you email me via the app. You will find contact details on the Help tab in the app. I can assist you from there to ensure you get the trial running.

  • Love it
    Steve Nguyen | September 20, 2018

    I just download the trial version and it works great.

    I am to get my boss to buy a copy but I want to know how much it cost per 1 or more like 10 if there is a discount.


  • Works Well! But suggestions or advice
    Grant Parry | May 22, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    1. Scale is invented, is there a way to change the scale from 0.1:10 to 1:10 automatically.


    2. Part list drop point ? I want it to be placed in the lower corner. 


  • Works but wonder if it can do more
    Aamal Alabed | May 17, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I often make weldment drawings that will have the main weldmaent on a page then all of the component views on the same drawing. Is it possible to do this with this program?

    Pieter van der Westhuizen (Publisher) | May 21, 2018

    Hi Aamal, Thanks for the feedback. Currently, that will have to be done manually. You are welcome to email me so we can chat about your requirement and see if we can add something for you to make it easier to do what you want to do.

  • It needs some added features
    Daniel Mackie | April 07, 2017 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I was hoping it has some more customized features to follow my companies drawing standards. Such as BOM goes in the top left hand corner, or adding a 5th view. With having to go into each drawing and still having to remove/add dims views and drag the BOM around I'm not sure how much faster it is to use this program

    Pieter van der Westhuizen (Publisher) | April 18, 2017

    Hi Daniel, Thanks for your feedback! Please contact me offline via so we can assess your exact requirements to see how we can help you achieve what's required. You can use the ivtools email address as above. Thank you! Pieter

    Hi you can download it here from the Autodesk Store or from here:

  • Display Option
    Ysald Zuidema | May 12, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Hi, Just downloaded the trail for this. And the firts impression is GREAT! But Inventor got his display option for like; Tangent Edges. I dont can find this in the autodraw option...

    Pieter van der Westhuizen (Publisher) | May 17, 2016

    Hi Ysald, Thanks for the idea. This is currently not possible to automate as far as we are aware. We will investigate this some more and will add it in a future release as soon as its possible. Thanks

  • Great! but can be better
    Piet Claassens | November 20, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Great program for quick and easy making of drawings. When you remove a part from an assembly it will disapear from the program as it should. But the drawing stay's in the folder of the assembly. It would be awesome if drawings of parts that are removed from the assembly are also removed from the folder it was in. This way you don't need to do this by hand.

    Pieter van der Westhuizen (Publisher) | November 26, 2015

    Hi Piet, Thanks for the feature request. I have added it to the list of features to be added in a future release. Thanks!

  • Time saving app
    Pascal David | November 04, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is a great app, time saving, after this app placed the assembly or part on the template. You need to put everything on place for better but still a huge time saving. Thanks and also a great service.

  • Really love this add on, have suggestion
    Joris Steurs | October 30, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is an addon I like a lot and use often. The 2016 edition is a nice update. I ' have a simple suggestion for improvement that could be another big time saver. When selecting the drawing template , the addon could look if it holds any iLogic rules and presents all of them in the UI. The user could then select the rules he would like to run when the template is used , with the options at file open , close or other etc.

    Pieter van der Westhuizen (Publisher) | October 31, 2015

    Hi Joris, Thanks for the kind words! Maybe we can chat about your request some more offline so I can get a better understanding of what you would like to achieve. You have my email address I think but you can use the ivtools one as well. Thanks

  • Request
    Andrew Bates | October 23, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This is great however, I would like the option to be able to save a drawing as its part number and not the file name, is this possible.

    Pieter van der Westhuizen (Publisher) | October 31, 2015

    Hi Andrew, Your request has been noted and we will look at adding it into a future release. Thanks

  • Not worth it
    Jesse Ragsdale | March 20, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    With the sheet metal it would be more useful if it brought in the dimensions for the flat pattern. That to my shop at least is the most crucial. Also if you could have them all put onto one drawing for shop blueprints.

  • Saves time
    Ivon Leblanc | February 14, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I use this program to save a large amount of time. No more searching the drawing folders to ensure you have all the idw files for your models.

  • It works but needs a lot of work
    Mike Folgers | December 05, 2013 Verified Download (What's this?)

    1.) It places a center mark on everything that may or may not be a hole. 2.) The views are: 3 view ortho with the iso in the bottom right corner wth? 3.) Sometimes it creates views that are scaled so large that they overlap and extend way past the boundaries of the sheet. 4.) It creates the drawings in the folder where the source file is, this means that you can have these drawings located all over the place, and subsequently have to hunt them down one at a time. 5.) This company will snag your email address and spam you every day.

    Pieter van der Westhuizen (Publisher) | February 22, 2014

    Hi Mike, Answer to your issues: 1) AutoDRAW V2 has more center mark settings and this can now be set to cater for various conditions exactly like inside Inventor. 2) Thanks for this feedback! The next version of AutoDRAW will cater for view placement options. I am interested to hear how you place your views? That way we can ensure that your needs are catered for in the next version as well. 3) The view scaling algorithm has been tweaked a bit in AutoDRAW V2 so it should be much better. Give it a go and let us know what you think. This is a work in progress and to try and cater for all conditions is very difficult. In time this will get better. 4) In AutoDRAW V2 you can now set the drawing output folder. 5) We will and have not ever spammed anyone and it’s certainly not in our interest to do this at all! We will only notify people of new versions of our apps and other app related news. Please contact me directly if you need any assistance.

  • Muito bom
