Autodesk Inventor Publisher Mobile Viewer allows you to interactively view animated 3D assembly instructions created with Autodesk Inventor Publisher desktop software.

Some assembly required? Left the manuals back at the shop? Missed your last product training session?

No problem. With Inventor Publisher Mobile Viewer, you can have important product information and instructions at your fingertips wherever you go. Users of the desktop version of Inventor Publisher software can easily publish and share 3D instructions directly to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Together, Inventor Publisher and the Inventor Publisher Mobile Viewer App deliver next generation instructions for visually explaining your ideas, designs, and products.

• Communicate how your products get assembled, used, taken apart, and serviced – or simply what’s great about them.
• Reduce your documentation, service, support and training costs
• Arm your sales force with 3D to win new business

Once you’ve experienced instructions in 3D, you’ll never look at documentation the same way again.

Autodesk Inventor Publisher Mobile Viewer comes with a small selection of sample files. To create your own 3D instructions, Autodesk Inventor Publisher desktop software is required.


✓ Zoom, pan, & rotate in 3D using Multi-Touch
✓ Play or scrub through animated sequences of step-by-step instructions
✓ Double Tap on individual components for detailed part information
✓ View text descriptions and annotations that can help augment 3D graphics
✓ Includes 4 sample instruction files
✓ Create, publish, and deliver instruction files to mobile devices using the Publish to Mobile capability of Autodesk Inventor Publisher desktop PC software.

  • Awesome

    by Nik Gaggero

    I really liked using it when I forgot my laptop at home and I had to present my robot over cad drawings

  • Very good game

    by ...Everything it taken...

    Your can learn from this, and it is very fun! We actually use it in school!

  • Great

    by IshadoD1

    Fun app

  • All good since the update

    by Propeller head Bill

    All works now since the update! Thank you!

  • Project Engineer

    by Joe Vincent 21

    This used to be a really cool app!!!! However, whom ever is suppose to be maintaining this APP? I am not sure they have done much with it lately???? I do wish they would come back to work soon. I give 3 stars because I do have a few items on there. Would be a 5 star if I could have uploaded today?

  • Ipad 2 VS Ipad3

    by Grazer 13

    Some models loaded on iPad 3 state that capacity is to large. If you try this on iPad 2 it works. Please fix this!

  • Shut up!

    by parappa the killer

    All of you

  • Real inventor

    by Turtletamer22

    I wish u could actually make stuff like the one on the computer...

  • Issue

    by me22387

    Looks great, have trouble with applied colors showing up on my phone app when they work on the computer. But the $2,500 is a joke, we may be buying 4-5 seats of inventor.

  • Good idea

    by Dmachinist

    It's a very good app, runs great on my 3GS, i like it, but i can't upload a file from my computer, i don't have an inventor ID just some files i want to look at. Udate please!

  • Good Concept, but that's about it.

    by playbass06

    This is a good idea overall, especially with engineering projects that are shared throughout many locations or on the go. But this platform doesn't work well for it. I have so much lag that the app freezes up when viewing an object and I can no longer use the app. I don't see any quality controls either.

  • Kdogg

    by k3hlan

    This is cool, but when can I get a viewer for my 3ds files? ;)

  • Finally!! Wake up Solidworks

    by Service rep

    This is a great app! We use a lot of 3D models in our troubleshooting and field service work. We use typically use eDrawings, but this opens the door for a lot on the fly updates. The only thing that is frustrating, is you have to use the auto desk website. It would be nice to be able to download files from our servers. Over all I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a 3D package. The models rotate smooth and the graphics are excellent.

  • Fantastic!

    by gesteves

    Incredible interface. Fast pan and zoom. This app will change the way to present projects.

  • Finally, Autodesk! Thanks!

    by lsimon77

    I've Been using Inventor for a few years now for First Robotics I am CAD captain for my team, and now I can send our files to the members!

  • What a great App!

    by goodLG

    What an awesome app for viewing instructions. This is a perfect use for my iPhone and will save me hours of searching for books.

  • Awesome

    by ERK27

    This is great, AWESOME. I have been using Inventor 3D modeling since Rev. 1. Now I can show my assembly designs in the iPad. And create assembly instructions for the iPad, as well as the iPhone. Can't wait to get hands on the Autodesk 3D modeling program for the Mac. After using the iPad, I'll be glad to swicth to the Mac from the PC.

  • Awesome

    by DJBisMe

    After using the beta version for awhile, I can say this app is pretty amazing. To be able to view and rotate and zoom in on a 3D Inventor model on the iPad is incredibly useful.

  • Terrible

    by XTheItalianStalion33x

    What. When was this app created like 2006

  • IDK!

    by Aalina-Mari

    It doesn't let me do anything!!!!!!!!

  • CRASHES !!

    by Peter Pancho

    Same here. Every time you want to open your files, it crashes flawlessly

  • Crashes

    by Mondray12321

    When I tap on downloads it crashes and won't view my project

  • App crashes when trying to download new file in iPhone 5.

    by tmditmf

    I recently updated the app, but it still crashes when you try to download new files on the iPhone. Can someone from Autodesk look into this?

  • Stone ages

    by Notsoguido

    I downloaded this app when it first came out and was happy just to have 3D work instructions on my iPad. It was new, it was cool. Now it's just lame. I don't think the developers have kept up with the Jones's over time. Maybe they don't think mobility is the direction people are going? Doubtful. Mobility is key for the future of work instructions, service, training, etc. Maybe they just dropped the ball. SAP's Visual Enterprise Viewer is leaps and bounds ahead of this has been. Try it. Better interface, more info at your fingertips. Just all-around easier to use and has many more features. I'm glad I didn't pay for this app. It's a circus trick.


    by ColdCalifornain

    Stay far away from this app and from Publisher. I have had nothing but trouble with their products, and the lack of backward compatibility on the new mobile view is the last straw.

  • Great application

    by Anthony11221

    Why is it that each time Autodesk puts out an update none of the models carry over? Come on..this is getting old really quick. I like the new title bar, but wish it would be turned off if wanted.

  • Need to change background color

    by Fred Cooke

    Great software, one star until we can change the gray background. Then you get 5.

  • ?

    by 374940820

    I get how you can view the inventions and I get how you upload it from your computer, but I would like the new update to actually let you create the invention from your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad. But besides that the 3D graphics are amazing and I am looking forward to your next apps you choose to create.

  • Great idea, but costs $2500 to use.

    by CADMasterX

    On the iPad, this is a killer app. But don't charge me $2500 to use it. I have the $10,000 Autodesk Inventor Product Design Suite ULTIMATE 2012 and it doesn't include the Autodesk Inventor Publisher application needed to use this app. It has all the other Inventor products. Most of which are useless like mud box and fusion. They come up with a good idea with publisher and you gotta pay extra. I guess the ULTIMATE is not so ULTIMATE anymore.

  • Eh.

    by Rater77w0

    Seems like a great app except I am unable to log in or upload models. I hope they either fix this or somebody else finds a way to upload rhem

  • Update please!

    by Grimreeper95

    This seems like a cool application but I have no idea how to get my files into it. Please please let us transfer files using iTunes or even better let us "open with" autodesk inventor. The only reason I have this app is because I'm hoping that update is coming. Until then it only takes up space.

  • Good but

    by Byoung3497

    I cant get it to login I even checked the website and my email and pass was exactly right. Pls fix

  • Techman004

    by Bling Bling Bling

    The thing that i dont like is the fact that you cant make anything!!!!!

  • Good Luck getting program to work when Autodesk Login doesn't work

    by tnugent959

    Program starts very well. That's about it. You can't log into your account, new account etc to load files such that you can download them to the mobil application. When you try to contact support, you can simply send them a message, research your problem (which by the way, they don't have a category for fixing accounts or login). We can get through the log in screen, but then it takes you to a reset your password screen. This is it. You simply get locked into a cycle of resetting your password.
