Autodesk Inventor Advanced Assembly Modeling

DESCRIPTION:

The goal of this training is to take you to a higher level of productivity when creating and working with assemblies. 

You begin by focusing on the Top-Down Design workflow. You learn how tools are used to achieve this workflow using Derive, Multi-Body Design, and Layouts. Other topics include model simplification tools, Positional and Level of Detail Representations, iMates and iAssemblies, Frame Generator, Design Accelerator, and file management and duplication techniques.

PREREQUISITES:

  • The class assumes mastery of Autodesk Inventor basics as taught in Autodesk® Inventor®: Introduction to Solid Modeling. In addition, Autodesk® Inventor®: Advanced Part Modeling knowledge is recommended.
  • The use of Microsoft® Excel is required for this training course.

TOPICS COVERED:

  • Applying motion to existing assembly constraints using Motion and Transitional Constraints.
  • Introduction of the Top-Down Design technique for creating assemblies and its components.
  • Tools for Top-Down Design, such as associative links, adaptive parts, multi-body and layout design, derived components, and skeleton models.
  • Creating Positional Representations to review motion, evaluate the position of assembly components, or document an assembly in a drawing.
  • Using Shrinkwrap and other model simplification tools to create a part model that represents an overall assembly.
  • Creating Level of Detail Representations to reduce the clutter of large assemblies, reduce retrieval times, and substituting models.
  • Using the Design Accelerator to easily insert standard and customizable components and features into your model.
