Are There Free Trial Details From Inventor

Yes, Inventor offers a free trial. In fact, it works for a full 30 days, which is a worthwhile amount of time to truly let you work with the program and discover its many benefits. You just need to be sure your computer meets the system requirements before you attempt to download it.

System Requirements

There are numerous system requirements your computer needs to meet in order to run Inventor. Everything from the overall operating system to the memory, disk space and even spreadsheet program needs careful consideration. You must have:

  • Windows 10 or newer
  • A CPU with a minimum of 2.5 GHz
  • A minimum of 16 GB RAM  for part assemblies under 500, 32 GB RAM for more
  • 40 GB of disk space
  • A minimum graphics card of 1 GB GPU with 29 GB/S Bandwidth and DirectX 11 compliant (4 GB GPU with 106 GB/S Bandwidth is recommended.)
  • A minimum display resolution of 1280 x 1024
  • Microsoft Excel 2016 or newer that is fully installed and paid for

If you're managing larger assemblies with 1,000 parts or more, the minimums will not suffice and you will need far better graphics and memory.
