ASi-Profile is a 3D-CAD add-on application for Autodesk Inventor developed by company ITB Paul Schneider.


The software aims to extend the field of application of Autodesk Inc.'s CAD software Autodesk Inventor, which is usually used for mechanical construction in mechanical engineering and plant engineering. ASi-Profile enables the user to create supporting structures, substructures, control- and maintenance platforms, stairways, barriers, etc. which are typical elements in the constructional steelwork area.[1]

Use in mechanical engineering, plant engineering[edit]

Conventional 3D CAD systems for mechanical engineering usually lack of functions to create steel constructions. As an add-on application, the software tries to fill the gap between mechanical engineering and constructional steelworking, enabling the designer, for example, to create a supporting frame for a machine or the required maintenance platform in the same software.

Use in locksmithing, metal fabrication[edit]

The scope in locksmithing and metal fabrication is often to plan and design stairways, platforms, balconies or railings, etc., with the intention of creating a customized, individual structure, setting a special focus on its design. ASi-Profile is used to simplify the construction process and to create realistic views of the structures.

Distribution, Platforms[edit]

The software is being used and distributed worldwide by local dealers, who assume user training and support.
