    Design, Simulate, and Optimize Your Factory Layout Directly in AutoCAD®

    Quickly build a spatially accurate layout and process simulation model simultaneously all within AutoCAD, using Factory Design Assets and the ProModel AutoCAD Add-in. Simulate the scaled model directly in AutoCAD with the click of a button. View results in the Output Viewer and easily make, test and validate layout and process changes in AutoCAD. Finalize the model, then view it in 3D with Inventor® and ProModel 3D Animator.


    Create an AutoCAD layout using Factory Assets. Then build the process model using flows and other features from the ProModel Ribbon on the AutoCAD menu.

    2 Press "Simulate" and watch your model run with animation in AutoCAD.


    View dynamic model output metrics and run "What-If" scenarios. Compare and contrast your "What-If" scenarios in automatically generated reports that display the KPI's that define an optimized system.


    From the process optimization, make any required changes in AutoCAD, then simulate again to confirm the improved results.


    Open the final model in Inventor and ProModel 3D Animator to view the layout and model in 3D.

    What's New




      ProModel AutoCAD Version

    This new standalone software will require an additional subscription license.

    ProModel AutoCAD Edition now allows the user to build and simulate directly in AutoCAD Architecture or AutoCAD Mechanical 2019 or newer. Additional value can be gained by using Autodesk Product Design and Manufacturing Collection (PDMC) or Autodesk Factory Design Utilities (FDU), but they are not required.

    ProModel AutoCAD Edition allows the user to build directly within AutoCAD:

      • Locations
      • Conveyors
      • Process Flows
      • Resource
      • Path Networks
      • Build Scenarios
      • Simulation Options
      • Push the model to ProModel for more advanced modeling capabilities

    Once your model is built you can simulate directly within the AutoCAD environment.
