How to Work With AutoCAD Underlays in Inventor

Learning

By Heather Miller

Last year, Autodesk Inventor debuted new, exciting ways to accomplish design needs with associative AutoCAD DWG files. “What Lies Beneath: Using AutoCAD Underlays in Inventor” takes you on an hour-long deep dive into how you can make both AutoCAD and Inventor work together and to your advantage for layout and collaborative design.

autocad_underlaysMark Flayler, an application engineer and a certified Autodesk Authorized Training Center (ATC) Certified Instructor, leads this class from Autodesk University. After first covering workflows and DWG stability and import preparedness, he then takes you step-by-step into underlay attachment and control; creating geometry within an underlay; use as a layout reference; and much more.

What You Will Learn

By the end of this class, you will learn how to:

  • Understand the connectivity between AutoCAD associative underlays with Inventor
  • Develop parts and features from existing AutoCAD drawings
  • Create assembly relationships based on AutoCAD geometry
  • Use underlays for layout purposes in Inventor
