Autodesk Inventor Advanced Assembly Modeling

The Autodesk® Inventor® 2017 (R1) Advanced Assembly Modeling student guide builds on the skills acquired in the Autodesk® Inventor® 2017 (R1) Introduction to Solid Modeling and Autodesk® Inventor® 2017 (R1) Advanced Part Modeling student guides to take students 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. A chapter has also been included about the Autodesk® Inventor® Studio to teach you how to render, produce, and animate realistic images.

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.
  • Creating rendered realistic images and animations of parts and assemblies using Autodesk Inventor Studio and the Video Producer.
  • Using iMates and iAssemblies to work efficiently with assemblies.
  • Using the Frame Generator to create structural members.
  • Using pattern, mirror, and copy techniques to duplicate components in an assembly.
  • Working with weldments.
  • Link and drive parameters to and from a spreadsheet. You also learn to custom format and create expressions in a parameter.

Prerequisites
The class assumes mastery of Autodesk Inventor basics as taught in Autodesk Inventor Introduction to Solid Modeling. Autodesk Inventor Advanced Part Modeling is recommended.

Note: The use of Microsoft Excel is required for this training course.
