Do you need to take a concept and make it a reality? Does that reality include injection-molded parts? Do you need to get your design reviewed and approved quickly? If the answer to even 2 out of 3 of these questions is "yes," you should attend this class. We will also look at answers to these questions, and at an even more important question: How can we make changes on an overall assembly's shape while still developing individual piece details? To do this we will explore workflows within Product Design Suite software and add a dash of Simulation DFM software for good measure.
- Discover how to use multibody tools and derived parts in product design
- Learn how to set up Simulation DFM to monitor plastic part design
- Discover how to use Showcase to present designs and alternatives to decision makers
- Learn how to use Inventor software's new 3D print environment to set up part creation
