    The Inventor software Content Center is a powerful tool that enables centralized storage and management of standard parts within a company, as well as providing a springboard to efficient design tools such as Frame Generator, Bolted Connections, and Tube and Pipe. However, to make the tool as flexible as possible, the Content Center uses highly technical names for components (ANSI, and so on). Perhaps you like to label your pan head machine screws as “ANSI.B18.6.3…” but that doesn’t work for many others. Additionally, while the out-of-the-box Content Center is extensive, it does not contain any of our specific components. So, whether you decide to use a vendor’s or your own part numbers, or you want to utilize existing data or add your own, this is the class for you. In this course, we’ll cover how to build custom Content Center structure, how to modify existing data or publish our own data, and how to simplify the end user’s experience and ensure data serves downstream processes. In every way, we will make the Content Center our own!
