In Inventor, there is nothing yet that does this. There was a Feature Recognition feature tested by Autodesk Labs. It has been closed, and was stated to supposedly be entered into the 2013/14 version of Inventor. I see it as available here:

Here is the download link:

SolidWorks has a feature called FeatureWorks, which takes imported models and makes features in SolidWorks that are editable by you.

It is slightly clumsy, and I would imagine that the Inventor version is going to be even worse than SolidWorks since it's basically brand new. I have to re-do my models to meet my standards of modeling, but the features are a good starting point.
