    Top down, bottom up, skeletal modeling, multi-body master part—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 to produce great results. This class is for drafters who have made their way through a basic Autodesk Inventor software training course, but who are having difficulty using Inventor in production, particularly on bespoke, one-off projects. This class focuses on "alternative" assembly modeling techniques in Inventor that can help you build unique, fully parametric models quickly and simply without the nightmare of assembly constraints and circular adaptive references. This class will benefit drafters from all engineering and manufacturing industries. Attendees should have working knowledge of Autodesk Inventor. If you produce bespoke, unique, one-off digital prototypes—this class is for you.

    Key Learnings

    • Choose the appropriate technique (or combination of techniques) for your project
    • Use "alternative" assembly techniques to build constraint-free assembly models
    • Identify the differences between the bottom up, top down, and derived geometry Inventor assembly techniques
    • Explain the benefits of using these assembly techniques over using the standard constraint-based assembly technique
