Inventor 2012 Advanced Assembly Modeling
Total number of pages: 570
Total Hours: 24
Inventor 2012 Advanced Assembly Modeling builds on the skills acquired in Inventor Introduction to Solid Modeling and Advanced Part Modeling to take students to a higher level of productivity creating and working with assemblies in Inventor.
In this training guide, you begin by learning 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 training guide, you will learn 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, iLogic for assembly automation, and file management and duplication techniques that aim to help you become more efficient when working with assemblies.
A chapter has been included on Inventor Studio to teach you how to render, produce, and animate realistic images.
- Applying motion to existing assembly constraints using Drive Constraints, Motion, and Transitional Constraints.
- Introduction of the Top-Down Design technique.
- Inventor tools for Top-Down Design, including associative links, adaptive parts, multi-body design, layout design, derived components, and skeleton models.
- Creating Positional Representations of an assembly.
- Creating Level of Detail Representations including Substitute Level of Detail Representations.
- Using the Design Accelerator.
- Creating rendered realistic images and animations using Inventor Studio and Video Producer.
- Using iMates, iAssemblies, and iLogic.
- Using the Frame Generator to create members in a structural frame work.
- Using pattern, mirror, and copy techniques.
- Working with weldments.
- Link system parameters and custom parameters to an external spreadsheet file. Custom formatting and creating expression within a parameter.
The class assumes a mastery of Inventor basics as taught in Inventor Introduction to Solid Modeling. Inventor Advanced Part Modeling is recommended.
