Inventor 2011 Sheet Metal Design
Total number of pages: 534
Total Hours: 16
Inventor 2011 Sheet Metal Design introduces the concepts and techniques of sheet metal modeling with Autodesk Inventor. The topics presented in this course assume prior knowledge of 3D solid part modeling with Autodesk Inventor.
The structure of the course follows the typical stages of using Inventor. That is, to create sheet metal parts, edit them, generate flat patterns, and document the designs in drawings.
• The Inventor Sheet Metal interface
• Sheet metal design process
• Creating base Faces, Contour Flanges, and Contour Rolls
• Creating secondary Faces, Contour Flanges, and Contour Rolls
• Sheet metal Parameters
• Creating Flanges
• Creating Hems, Folds, and Bends
• Corner Rounds and Chamfers
• Sheet Metal Cuts (Holes, Cuts, and Punch Features)
• Corner Seams (Seams and Miters)
• Generating Flat Patterns
• Lofted Flanges
• Unfolding and Refolding
• Documentation and Annotation of drawings
• Converting solid model to sheet metal models
• Sheet Metal Styles
Inventor 2011 Introduction to Solid Modeling or equivalent.
Experience with the Windows operating system, and some background with designing and drafting 3D parts (such as orthographic projections) is recommended. Although it is not required, knowledge of sheet metal processing is helpful as students learn to use the Inventor Sheet Metal design tools.
