This class will cover the use of Inventor software tools for the simplification of both native and non-native vendor equipment models in order to minimize file sizes in large process-facility Building Information Modeling (BIM) projects. We will also discuss the pros and cons of using the BIM Exchange app inside Inventor software to export models for use in AutoCAD Plant 3D software.
- Understand concepts for simplifying native and non-native models in Inventor software
- Learn how to add nozzles and manufacturing information to models using BIM Exchange in Inventor software
- Learn how to convert equipment and add nozzles inside AutoCAD Plant 3D software
- Learn how to effectively use Autodesk tools to minimize file size and optimize performance for large-scale process manufacturing projects
Jess Neal has over 17 years of experience as a designer and drafter. He has experience with various CAD platforms, including most AutoCAD software-based products. After dabbling in various 3D mechanical solid-modeling packages, his tool of choice is now Inventor software. He has extensive strengths in the areas of 3D modeling, fabrication practices, and structural detailing. In his off time he enjoys virtually designing projects on the computer and then building the projects in his shop. His projects have varied from small-scale RC vehicles and Jeep bumpers to large-scale projects like circle track race cars and off-road camping trailers.
