Inventor iLogic is oftentimes based on the concept of a “Master Model” where everything is self-contained including all parts, assemblies, and their corresponding constraints. A second method, one without the “Master Model”, is something KETIV Engineers have begun to explore with customers. Jonathan Kriek, MFG Solutions Engineer, shows how KETIV is using a templated automation approach with “Generative” capabilities using iLogic along with the Inventor API to create highly-customizable designs, build components on the fly, and assemble automatically based on ever-changing conditions. In this session of Autodesk Virtual Academy, see how this design methodology has helped us solve some unique customer problems.
I'm sure everyone wants to eliminate repetitive design in our workflows. Sometimes this process is difficult, sometimes even needing custom coding of software. Other times you don't necessarily need to go as far as coding and programming, and you just need to fully leverage the power the software comes with "out of the box". One such tool is Dynamic blocks. Dynamic blocks in AutoCAD contain rules that allow a user to configure parameters to change the appearance of the block reference when it is inserted into drawings. Such function allows users to define custom properties and manage drawing content to further enhance and speed up workflow.
In this session of Autodesk Virtual Academy, we cover Dynamic Blocks, how to create them, and associate specific parameters to define sizing, arrays, and visibility states.
We recently kicked off our first Fusion 360 meetup and had a great group of people attend. People ranging from industrial designers to enthusiasts were in attendance. What’s great about the diversity is seeing the different applications people are using Fusion 360 for and these meetups expose us to things we never knew the tool can do.
Two-Dimensional tools aren't going away any time soon. AutoCAD started the trend of computer-aided design, and a large portion of the CAD userbase still uses it to design parts and assemblies.
Autodesk's 3D modeling solution, Inventor, allows users to utilize existing 2D data to quickly generate 3D models, using the DWG Underlay Technology in Inventor. No longer does one need to choose between a 2D or 3D workflow. Instead the two can co-exist, allowing users to benefit from the simplicity of a 2D drawing, or the power of a 3D model.
Join Nathan Eliason, Senior Technical Specialist, for this session of Autodesk Virtual Academy as he demonstrates how to bring 2D AutoCAD drawings into your Inventor models and quickly generate associative 3D data - increasing design efficiency and expanding your workflow options.
Autodesk Inventor comes equipped with 2D drawing capabilities to help you create clear and accurate product documentation. To make the most of your deliverables, you need to understand how to manipulate views to best fit the needs of your team and customers.
In this session of Autodesk Virtual Academy, we cover Custom Styles, customizing Balloons, populating Title Blocks using iProperties, Breakout Views, and more.
There are a number of tools offered by Autodesk Vault Workgroup and Autodesk Vault Professional. Unfortunately, many users are unaware of their existence and the tools go unused. Vault Reports fall into this category.
Discover how Vault Reports can reveal important information to the Vault user and others even if they don't have access to CAD software or the Vault Client.
You need to ensure your product can withstand the test of time. Running your design through a number of simulation tests will ensure you catch potential flaws earlier in the production process, saving you time and money.
In our 3rd episode of Autodesk Fusion Fridays, we ran a static simulation test on a bicycle fork crown, the part that connects the handlebar and the front shocks. Read on to discover how you can use the Static Stress Simulation environment in Fusion 360 to avoid potential failures and maintain design integrity.

KETIV’s Nathan Eliason is headed to Kayamandi, South Africa as part of an Autodesk and Team4Tech project. The team consists of volunteers from Autodesk and Adobe, and we’re happy to represent KETIV in such a positive way. The team will spend time working alongside teachers and children from schools in the community.
Read further to discover more information on the project, described by Nathan. Nathan will continue to provide updates during his two weeks in Kayamandi.
The Revit team has been working to bring you new and exciting features for the 2018 release. Revit 2018 has the tools for consistent, coordinated, and complete modeling for architects, MEP, structural engineers and detailers, and construction contractors.
