With a recipe-based approach, hone and develop the necessary skills you need to perform mechanical, visualization, and simulation tasks using Autodesk Inventor
Create powerful parametric 3D designs, parts, and assemblies
Apply effective modeling techniques to increase automation and promote configuration
Enable iLogic-powered rapid configurations and apply Finite Element Analysis for model simulation
Autodesk Inventor is an industry-leading, computer-aided design application for 3D mechanical design, simulation, visualization, and documentation. This book will help to bridge the gap between the fundamentals of this software and the more advanced features, workflows, and environments it has to offer.
Using cookbook-style recipes, you'll gain a comprehensive understanding and practical experience in creating dynamic 3D parts, assemblies, and complete designs. You'll also explore a variety of topics, including automation and parametric techniques, collaboration tools, creating sheet metal designs, and design accelerators such as frame generators. As you progress, the chapters will guide you through surface modeling tools, advanced assembly, and simplification tools, along with covering iLogic, Finite Element Analysis, and more.
By the end of this book, you'll not only be able to use the advanced functionality within Autodesk Inventor but also have the practical experience you need to deploy specific techniques in your own projects and workflows.
