Installing Inventor Tooling

Applies to:  Inventor Professional 2010


I have installed Inventor Professional 2010 and the Tooling portion is not installed.


Inventor Professional 2010 does include the Tooling module, however, it will need to be downloaded and installed.

A card is contained in the box that describes this information but is often overlooked.

To download the tooling module go to

This website will instruct you how to proceed.

Attention Vista Users!!  For installation on Windows Vista, be sure to disable the UAC control found in Control Panel > Users, before installing.

Getting Started - Once the application is installed it should be listed on the Tools> Add-ins list as Autodesk Model Design.  To access this module, start a new assembly using the Mold Design.iam template that should now be available.  You will be prompted to select a component for which to make a mold.
