How to publish models in USD/USDz format from Inventor?

A - answer Since Inventor 2023 you can directly export your 3D models to the format USDz (Pixar). Use the function File > Export > CAD Format and choose the format .usdz.

The 3D model in USD format contains color material data, is compact and can be viewed natively on Apple devices, or e.g. using the online USD viewer (see the section Converters).

Compare - the sample model of a Motor assembly in Inventor:
