Autodesk® Software

Applied Engineering is an authorized Autodesk Reseller with a proven track record of helping manufacturers in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Northern Iowa go beyond 3D design to Digital Prototyping. The Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping brings together design data from all phases of the development process into a single digital model created in Inventor. This single digital model simulates the complete product and gives engineers the ability to better design, visualize, and simulate their product with less reliance on costly physical prototypes — thereby improving time-to-market and increasing competitive advantage.

The Autodesk approach to Digital Prototyping is scalable, attainable, and cost-effective, allowing a broader group of manufacturers to realize the benefits of Digital Prototyping with minimal disruption to existing workflows.

Through comprehensive trainingimplementation and support, Applied Engineering helps you leverage an Inventor-based Digital Prototyping solution to make great products.
