Reverse for Autodesk® Inventor®

Autodesk certified app

Reverse™ for Inventor software is an add-in that supports all 3D scanners to create usable 3D models from scan data, not just solids or surfaces, directly into Autodesk® Inventor®.

This reverse engineering product expands the capabilities of Inventor software or hardware solutions with a powerful and flexible digitizing front end, scanning plug-in and 3D MESH reverse engineering technology for Inventor®. enables designers and engineers to perform Inventor® feature based reverse engineering. The add-in supports point clouds to produce incredibly detailed feature based three-dimensional images of complex environments and geometries in only a few minutes for manufacturing and analysis.

At the forefront of hardware integration with the Faro Focus 3D, Faro Edge, Faro Laser Tracker, White Light and Blue Light Scanners, Nikon®, ROMER Absolute, Leica Absolute Tracker AT401, 3D Creator, Baces 3D and MicroScribe, utilizes the powerful feature set within its internal engine: Integrated Point Processor (HIPP).


  • 3D Scan point clouds and measure direct in Inventor®
  • Get from raw 3D scans to real CAD models
  • Hard probe physical model features direct into feature tree for digitized intelligent parametric models
