Inventor viewer for IAM and IPT

Additional Native Inventor File Formats

  • idw Native 2D drawing from Inventor, derived from IPT or IAM. Can only be opened in Inventor or Inventor View.
  • dwg Native 2D drawing from AutoCAD. Can be used in AutoCAD and Inventor due to the close relationship, however: A DWG created with Inventor can only be modified in Inventor. A DWG created with AutoCAD can only be modified with AutoCAD.
  • dxf The 2D format DXF was developed because the first AutoCAD versions under Windows, MacOS and Linux required different DWG data. The DXF format was later retained as it had proven itself for exchange with other CAD programs. However, a number of CAD functions are lost compared to DWG.

How Do I Convert Inventor IAM and IPT Files?

If you do not have CAD software with an Inventor interface, the design must be exported from Inventor to a common 3D exchange format, such as STEP.

Converting Inventor IAM and IPT to STEP is also possible with a 3D converter or CAD converter.

3D Tool Premium includes the 3D NativeCAD Converter. In addition to native Inventor models, this converts models from many common CAD systems into the 3D exchange formats STEP, IGES, SAT and Parasolid X_T supported by many CAD/CAM programs.
