Rendering your Design in Autodesk Inventor

By Harrison Gloyne, Redstack Intern

If you’re having any trouble using Autodesk Inventor, we have a whole list of support articles you can access from our blog.

Now that you have finished or are finalising your design, you may want to see what it will look like once it has been 3D printed. But how can you do this before you 3D print?

How do I render in Inventor?

Rendering allows you to see a realistic image of your design, and can be done by following these 3 simple steps.

Step 1 – Go to the Environments tab on the top banner and then select Inventor Studio from the drop-down banner.

Step 2 – Once in Inventor studio there are several options.

To put a texture, material or colour on your part you simply have to select the part in which you want to edit and go to the drop-down bar on the top of the screen to select your appearance.

Step 3 – Select Render image and follow the prompts

These 3 easy to follow steps will have you rendering in no time, allowing you to see a realistic image of your design before you 3D print.
