What would you do if Autodesk, Inc., removed the Save As command from the next version of Inventor software? Once you’re familiar with Inventor software’s deriving functionality, you probably wouldn’t even notice if the Save As command went missing. During this class we will explore what the Derive command is, why you would want to use it, and how to use it effectively. (Spoiler Alert: it's really pretty simple once you understand how it works.) If you’re already comfortable with Inventor software 3D modeling but want to be more efficient, accurate, and flexible in your workflow, come to this class to get your Inventor D(e)river License.
- Discover and articulate the difference between Inventor software’s Derive versus Save As
- Discover the benefits of using the Derive command and identify where it can be used in your workflow
- Learn how to identify the objects which can be Derived and how they are linked together
- Learn how to perform the steps of Deriving using: Derive, Make Components, Make Part, Shrinkwrap, and Copy Part
Jeff Stueck is an applications expert for the manufacturing solutions division at IMAGINiT Technologies. He has worked in their Salt Lake City office since 2012 where he has helped over 200 clients maximize their investment in Autodesk, Inc., software. Jeff grew up in a machine shop where he was exposed to machinery old enough to run on custom leather belts along with first-generation numerical control machinery that read machine code from a hand-punched tape. Jeff began his higher-education manufacturing engineering in college, but changed his major to accounting for reasons he can't recall. Thankfully his path led him back to manufacturing where his education in accounting has been a strong foundation in data management and database solutions. Jeff is a champion of 3D information modeling and data management workflows. Overall, Jeff has been designing, drafting, and managing data for over 15 years, and he prides himself on offering advanced solutions to difficult problems.
