Microstation is a CAD software platform for 2D and 3D design and drafting, created by Bentley Systems. Its geometric kernel is Parasolid. It is widely used in the architectural and engineering industries and allows generating 2D/3D vector graphics objects and elements and includes BIM features.
Autodesk Inventor is a CAD application for 3D mechanical design, simulation, visualization and documentation. It is built on ShapeManager, geometric modeling kernel by Autodesk.
Inventor enables 2D and 3D data integration in a single environment, virtually representing the final product. It allows users to check the form, fit, and functions of the product before it is built. The application provides strong parametric, direct edit and freeform modeling tools as well as multi-CAD translation abilities.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
