.IDV File Extension
File TypeInventor Design View File
What is an IDV file?
Design View file created by Autodesk Inventor, a 3D CAD mechanical design tool; stores a snapshot view of an assembly (.IAM) file; includes component visibility, viewing angles, magnification, and colors; enables draft reviewing of assemblies.
Design Views can be either public or private. Public design views can be associative, meaning that they are stored in the assembly file and are updated alongside the drawing. Private design views, on the other hand, are not associative and are exported as IDV files, which capture a snapshot of the drawing at a particular time.
