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.
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.
GK Machine is an industry leader helping customers in agriculture, transportation, and other markets transform bold ideas into specialty equipment with Autodesk 3D modeling software and support from KETIV.
See how GK Machine uses Autodesk Inventor and Autodesk Vault to bring their innovative ideas to life and build better products for their customers.
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!
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.
The wait is over! Autodesk Inventor 2018 is now available to download and here's your first look at what's new. This year, Product Managers at Autodesk have focused much of their efforts on adding professional-grade design enhancements, an expansion to interoperability, and improvements to the user-experience.
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.
My role at KETIV gives me the chance to work with amazing people, both customers and our own consultants. Together, they are changing the world with the products they create. Doing what we love is reward enough, but when the world recognizes the impact we make, it’s important that we celebrate together.
That’s why I’m proud to share the news that Scott Oshita, a long-time friend, colleague, and KETIV technical consultant, received a Scientific and Technical Achievement Award from the Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences for 2017.
KETIV and Autodesk spent the last few months preparing for an Autodesk Inventor event that would give users an exclusive look at some future functionality and features planned for upcoming releases. On December 6th and 7th, the event took place, giving users the unique opportunity to give direct feedback and see what’s coming from the team in charge of the software.
Let's take a look at the event and how users responded to this rare chance to take a glimpse into the future.
