Synonyms of "Invent" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between to invent and make up / made up ?
A: To "make up" is more of a mental action, such as "I made up a story", while "invent" usually implies creating an object. For example, you could say "I invented this machine", but you wouldn't say "I made up this machine". Inventing usually implies something tangible, while to make up implies something more abstract and intangible

Make up is a little more conversational than invent.

“Invention” is the noun

Ex: I invented an invention
Q: What is the difference between invent and make up ?
A: "to invent" is usually about something grander like someone inventing a new method, machine, etc. You could probably rewrite all those sentences to something similar using "invention" so instead of "He invented the automobile" you could say "He is well-known for his invention of the automobile"

When I hear "make up" in that sense I immediately think of "He made up a story" which kind of sounds like he is lying. I can't actually think of another example where it would be used.
Q: What is the difference between invented and created ?
A: invented means you thought of the idea yourself, nobody else did. for example, Alexander Graham Bell invented the phone.

created refers to something you made, but that doesn't mean you actually thought of the idea on your own
