Manifold Designer is a software to design Hydraulic Manifolds. Since the begining we have developed the software with the idea to have a tool to be used by everyone, not only by cad specialists.
You can start using Manifold Designer also if you have no experience on Cad software or on any related technologies.
The integration with Inventor is so perfect that you do not need to learn anything about its commands and concepts. Using Manifold Designer is like using a tool specifically created to design hydraulic manifolds.
At the end and during the design process only standard Inventor objects are created. This means that what you produce without any single specific Inventor command is totally editable with a standard Inventor installation without Manifold Designer.
