MFG197593 – Back to the Basics with Inventor

This class will be an introduction or reintroduction to Inventor mechanical design and 3D CAD software. It will also go into general detail about many of the common issues that come up on the Inventor forums. It is generally understood that there are more intermediate and advanced Inventor software classes at Autodesk University; however, sometimes you need to go back to the basics to discover or rediscover some of the features you might not know about or understand-whether they be hard to find, or confusing to know how to use. This session will feature Inventor Professional software.


IM196136 – Working with Inventor View Representations – Now You See it (Now You Don’t)

Overbearing Inventor model makin’ it so hard for me. This class will teach you how to use View Representations in Inventor assemblies. Representations control the visibility and several other characteristics of components within assemblies. Representations let you save specific views of your assembly to prepare for presentations and create drawings. Proper use of Representations will significantly improve your system’s performance when dealing with large, complex assemblies.


IM227166-L – iLogic from Zero to Sixty in Ninety

Have you heard great things about iLogic but never really learned about how or when to use it?  This hands-on lab will cover key concepts and techniques, with minimal expectations of programming experience. You’ll leave with an understanding how you can be more efficient with Inventor by using iLogic to automate routine tasks.

Specifically utilizing the Factory Design Utilities Connector technologies lets us easily “snap build” models together and transfer parameter values to maximize conceptual design efficiency.

MFG226529 – 3D CAD Preparation and Clean-up

Working with less than ideal 3D CAD models is par for the course. This class will cover workflows and techniques to help users prepare and clean-up 3D models for downstream use in simulation, rendering, CAM and protection of IP.


IM226629 – Ask the Inventor Product Manager Panel

This is your chance to hear from a panel of Inventor Product Managers on their role in the Inventor product team. The hosted panel will give you some insight into the ‘why’ and ‘what’ of the functionality that makes it into Inventor. Attendees will hear responses from the panel, as well as, get the chance to ask Inventor Product Managers direct questions.


IM227527 – Mastering collaboration in Design and Manufacturing with desktop and cloud

This class focuses on an audience is using Autodesk’s design and manufacturing products like AutoCAD, AutoCAD Mechanical, Inventor, etc. In the first part I’ll clearly explain how Autodesk Vault can help you to manage 2D and 3D CAD data and to collaborate with others. Further, we’ll smoothly integrate Vault’s Project Sync in our workflow as a facilitation to collaborate with externals. Once, we’ve passed our first connection to the cloud I’m going to demonstrate additional cloud product use cases you can integrate to be more productive.


MFG226705 – Reliable modelling techniques for complex part design in Autodesk Inventor

In this class we will learn how to build reliable, predictable parametric part models with confidence. We will learn a structured approach that can easily be documented as an office standard. We will learn how to order our feature tree, how to make features adapt, without making the model fragile.


MFG224000-L – Nesting Utility Hands-On

The class will explore by doing all the major commands and options the Inventor Nesting Utility add-in has to offer:

– Nest entire assemblies or individual Inventor sheet metal parts, extrusions and sketches

– Nests on multiple rectangular sheets of same or varying dimensions or on roll material

– Optimize nest efficiency (filler parts, tweak nesting parameters)

– Read in DXFs and use layer mappings to guide the fabrication process

– Explore associativity scenarios between 3D model and the generated nests

– Export nest as DXF or 3D model

– Generate NC toolpath using HSM CAM workflows

– Explore nest reports and costing


MFG226364 – Autodesk Solutions for the Industry of the Future

The Industry of the Future touch 6 main domains: The product design and process, the control, the fabrication, services /maintenance, big data analytics and work organization. The first main step is the digitalization of factories for new (greenfield) and existing (brownfield) factories. In this way, the digital mockup of factories allows to simulate and experiment it before it’s real.


PM224007 – Taking it to the Next Level – Drawing Automation with Inventor

We’ve all heard it before, “You can’t automate drawings with iLogic.”  Well, I’m here to tell you that you can!  In this instructional demo, you will learn the basic techniques of developing the logic required to automate 2D drawings with iLogic and the Inventor API.  From creating Views, adding Dimensions and Balloons, working with Sketched Symbols, and even Parts Lists, this demo will shed an abundant amount of light on how to develop your Drawing Automation as well as what to avoid to ensure a robust and stable automation project.


IM221410 – The Power of iLogic Design Automation: How did we get Here?

We will start our discussion with how we used iLogic when we started to learn how to apply it to our design process and how we progressed to more advanced techniques, as our knowledge of iLogic and the API grew. This is a success story where we will discuss the criteria we used to determine which parts of our designs to automate and how we incorporated iLogic into our work flows.


SD224080 – Understanding Geometry and B-Rep in Inventor and Fusion 360

This class investigates the internals of how Inventor and Fusion 360 represent solids and surfaces. We’ll look at how solids and surfaces are constructed and modified, and how you can access this information through the Inventor and Fusion 360 programming interfaces (API’s).  We’ll look at how to use the API to query and evaluate the shape of a model. We’ll also look at some modeling functionality that is only available through the API.
