    Thousands of engineers around the world are making better design decisions using the simulation tools in Inventor Pro. As success and comfort levels increase, engineers need to look beyond the limited questions that can be asked of this linear static solution to truly understand and respond to the demands of innovation. Autodesk Nastran In-CAD brings advanced analysis techniques to the Inventor platform allowing engineers to explore nonlinear, vibratory, buckling and other behaviors or failure conditions within the context of an interactive design and modeling session. Attendees of this workshop will be taught to recognize the need for these solutions and how to take their Inventor digital prototypes thru advanced tests. Additionally, they will be introduced to the inputs required and the outputs produced so more exacting and precise engineering decisions can be made.

    Key Learnings

    • Recognize the characteristics of nonlinearity, dynamic response and other advanced product behaviors
    • Define problem goals and inputs required for these tests in standard simulation terminology
    • Set up these advanced problems in the easy-to-use Inventor-based interface of Autodesk Nastran In-CAD
    • Understand the results of these studies and apply them to more precise engineering & product decisions
