Autodesk Inventor 2022 includes new Interoperability capabilities to help connect design teams with manufacturing, Engineering and BIM.
Read the overview post to find out what else is new in Inventor 2022.
Export to QIF
What is ‘QIF’?
QIF (quality information framework) is an ISO and ANSI approved, open-standard, XML based CAD format.
QIF contains PMI (product manufacturing information) / 3D product definition and other metadata that is both human-readable and computer-readable for MBD (model-based definition) implementation.
Autodesk Inventor includes support for export to QIF 3.0

Export to JT
What is ‘JT’?
JT (Jupiter Tessellation) is an ISO-standardized ‘lightweight’ 3D visualisation file format. It can contain Mesh, Nurbs, PMI and metadata.
In Inventor 2022, JT file export support has been added to the Task scheduler, allowing you to automate the batch output of JT files from your Inventor designs.

Send to Fusion
Fusion 360 (Sometimes known as ‘Inventors younger sibling’) is a web-enabled design and manufacturing platform.
Fusion has a lot of neat tricks that Inventor users may want to to explore.
Fusion design files are cloud hosted, and it isn’t straightforward to open an Inventor file in Fusion.
In Inventor 2022, this has been made easier with the ‘Send to Fusion’ command, which allows you to upload part files directly to Fusion (via your Fusion tam account) without needing to install desktop connector.

Revit Project file export
Furthering the work that has been done previously to help collaboration with Revit. We can now:
- Export a Revit family (RFA) file from Inventor.
- Reference a Revit project (RVT) file Into Inventor with AnyCAD.
New for Inventor 2022 is the ability to export a Revit project (RVT) file from Inventor.
By working in the context of the Revit project, around a shared coordinate system, we can now export an Inventor model as a Revit project that can be used for coordination and collaboration on our BIM projects.
