Inventor 2010 Advanced Assembly Modeling
Total number of pages: 564
Total Hours: 24
Inventor 2010 Advanced Assembly Modeling builds on the skills acquired in the Inventor Introduction to Solid Modeling and Advanced Part Modeling courses to take students to a higher level of productivity creating and working with assemblies in Inventor.
In this course, we begin by discussing the concept of Top-Down Design for assembly creation. Planning the assembly using the top-down design approach helps create clean, reusable geometry that interacts as expected with the rest of the assembly. Throughout the course you will be taught how various Inventor tools can be used to achieve Top-Down Design practices in your assemblies using Derive, Multi-Body Design, and Layouts. Other advanced assembly topics include Positional and Level of Detail Representations (including substitute), iMates and iAssemblies, Frame Generator, Design Accelerator, and file management and duplication techniques that aim to help you become more efficient when working with assemblies.
Accurately communicating a design to all levels of a design team is important. A chapter has been included on Inventor Studio to teach you how to render, produce, and animate realistic images.
• Introduction of the Top-Down Design technique for creating assemblies and its components.
• Inventor tools for Top-Down Design, including creating parts and features in the context of the assembly, associative links, adaptive parts, multi-body design, layout design, derived components, and skeleton models.
• Applying motion to existing assembly constraints using either Drive Constraints or Motion and Transitional Constraints.
• Creating Positional Representations of an assembly to review motion, evaluate the position of assembly components, or documents as assembly in a drawing.
• Creating Level of Detail Representations to reduce the clutter of large assemblies, as well as reduce your time spent waiting for your system to retrieve a large number of components in an assembly. You will also learn about Substitute Level of Detail Representations.
• using the Design Accelerator to easily insert standard and customizable components and features into your model.
• Using iMates and iAssemblies to work efficiently with assemblies.
• Creating rendered realistic images and animations of parts and assemblies using Inventor Studio and the Video Producer.
• Using pattern, mirror, and copy techniques to duplicate components in an assembly.
• Using the Frame Generator to create members in a structural frame work.
• Working with weldments.
• Link system parameters and custom parameters to an external spreadsheet file and use it to drive parameters in the model. You will also learn about custom formatting and creating expression within a parameter.
Prerequisites: The class assumes a mastery of Inventor basics as taught in Inventor Introduction to Solid Modeling. Inventor Advanced Part Modeling is recommended.
