Top down, bottom up, skeletal modeling, layout models, multi-body master parts: If you are having difficulty turning your part models into assembly models, do not despair! There are many alternative assembly techniques that can help you produce great results. This class is for drafters who have made their way through a basic Inventor 3D CAD software training course, but who are having difficulty using Inventor on their bespoke, one-off projects. This class focuses on alternative assembly modeling techniques in Inventor that can help you build unique models quickly and simply, and without the nightmare of assembly constraints or circular adaptive references. This class will benefit drafters from all engineering and manufacturing industries. Attendees should have working knowledge of Inventor. If you produce bespoke, unique, one-off digital prototypes, this class is for you.
- Identify the differences between the bottom up, top down, and derived geometry Inventor assembly techniques
- Communicate the benefits of using these assembly techniques over the standard constraint-based assembly technique
- Choose the appropriate technique (or combination of techniques) to use on your project
- Use these alternative assembly techniques to build constraint free assembly models
