If you’ve checked out some of our previous blogs you’ve probably already heard that OpenBOM is an Autodesk partner that provides a comprehensive set of features that integrate seamlessly with OpenBOM.
OpenBOM integrates with Autodesk Fusion 360, Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk Eagle, and Autodesk Forge…Just to name a few.
Today’s Focus…Autodesk Inventor
Today, I’d like to take a minute and discuss Autodesk Inventor and how OpenBOM has found a way to work side by side to deliver a great user experience to all the mechanical designers out there.
OpenBOM integrations include the following capabilities:
- Extracting data from Autodesk Inventor including metadata, geometry, and preview
- Support multi-level, part list and flattened BOM
- Uploading 3D Files and Drawings to OpenBOM connected cloud storage (eg. Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, etc.)
- Support for purchased assembly & part workflows, include/exclude items from BOM and more
OpenBOM also allows you to create an accurate BOM, prepare a part list for Purchase Orders, make a cost, mass roll-ups, and much more.
As one of the leading platforms of its kind, OpenBOM is used by thousands of engineers and companies. In order to get the full benefits of our product data management tool, interested parties will need to have access to our OpenBOM Professional User Subscription.
If you’re on the fence and want to get your feet wet before committing yourself, you can always request a non-commercial subscription for hobbies, education, and other non-business use.
To download the OpenBOM add-in for Autodesk Inventor and check for additional information, navigate to the following page. In my article today, I’m going to introduce a new set of videos and training materials to help you start using OpenBOM For Autodesk Inventor.

OpenBOM provides a robust and powerful tool to integrate with Autodesk Inventor. It supports an easy data handover for the process of creating a Bill of Materials, Part List with Quantity rollup, comprehensive calculations (eg. cost, mass, etc) as well as data sharing of information with your team.
OpenBOM data collaboration and reports allow you to share data with anybody without accessing Autodesk Inventor. The revision mechanism allows you to control the history and changes of the BOM.
