Recap: iLogic Rules & Workflows Workshop

by Jorge Fernandez on Apr 11, 2017

A long time ago, in a college not so far away (Cal Poly Pomona to be exact), I found an urge to want to split myself in two. The fun side of Jorge would be able to go out with friends and the responsible side could focus on studying, homework, classes, and work.

Lately, I find myself trying to figure out a way to duplicate myself again. However, it’s so I can take on more work. Not so long ago, the industry found itself trying to figure out how to do more with less. Now, we want to do more with what we have. I’m here to tell you, through Inventor’s iLogic tool, we can!

What's New in Autodesk Inventor 2018 - Part 2

by Yvonne Liu on Mar 23, 2017

Model Based Definition – GD&T and 3D Annotation

What is it? The demand for integration between design and manufacturing has grown and the need for more information from 3D models has become part of the design process. Based on this shift, Inventor 2018 added fully integrated Model Based Definition (MBD). Now, a user can fully design and dimension a 3D model with tolerances and further reduce or eliminate 2D documentation entirely.

Get Started in Inventor's Shape Generator

by Nigel Ambayec on Mar 15, 2017

Inventor's Shape Generator is a new approach to design lightweight, structurally efficient parts in Autodesk Inventor. It provides an intelligent strategy for maximizing part “stiffness” based on the constraints you specify.

Worried about component weight? Shape Generator removes unnecessary pieces of geometry and optimizes your model to your specifications. The technology is integrated into Autodesk Inventor, making it simple to incorporate into your existing design process. Shape Generator produces a 3D mesh that can be used to guide your design refinement, meaning it's best used early when designing. Let’s look at how to include Shape Generator in your design process today.

Autodesk Virtual Academy: Modifying 2D Sketches in Inventor

by Daniel Hwang on Nov 23, 2016

Inventor is a powerful CAD tool that primarily uses parametric modeling. However, there's much more this tool can do in regards to modeling. Inventor comes with vector-based modeling tools, making it a great tool for anyone moving to the 3D world with a traditional 2D background. 

In this session of Autodesk Virtual Academy, we go over the various tools such as trim, extend, and offset found in Inventor to help modify and optimize your 2D sketches. We also illustrates how to share your sketches and when this feature might be useful.
