Factory Assets

Does Inventor give the ability to place default Factory Assets on a 2D factory layout? I know the Factory Design Suite has the ability to do this, but I don't need the Suite as I already own AutoCAD. All I need to be able to do is visualize a 3D factory layout such as in the following video for the Factory Design Suite:


What software will accomplish this? And again, I wouldn't need the Suite, because I don't need any other feature than to insert 3D factory assets onto a 2D layout.


Best Regards,

3DS Max might be able to achieve what I think you're after (can't view youtube at work though).

INV and AutoCAD in Factory Design Suite are different to what you have had in hand. They are added with extra addons with Factory Design Utilities with Assets Library with 2D/3D local Assets and Cloud Assets. And also 3D visulization layout  tools are provided in the utilties.
