Autodesk Inventor 2013 Advanced Part Modeling is the second in a series of training guides on the Autodesk Inventor software that is published by ASCENT. The goal of this guide is to build on the skills acquired in the Autodesk Inventor Introduction to Solid Modeling training guide by taking students to a higher level of productivity when designing part models in Inventor.
In this training guide, we consider various approaches to part design and emphasize useful strategies. Specific advanced part modeling techniques covered include multi-body design, advanced lofts, advanced sweeps, coils, and surface modeling. Additional material aimed at increasing efficiency is also included: iFeatures for frequently needed design elements, iParts for similar designs, iLogic for automating designs, translation options for importing data, and the Engineer’s Notebook for communication. The guide also covers some miscellaneous drawing tools such as custom sketches symbols, working with title blocks and borders, and documenting iParts. With an understanding of these tools, students can begin to streamline the design and documentation process.
Prerequisites: The material assumes a mastery of Autodesk Inventor basics as taught in Autodesk Inventor Introduction to Solid Modeling. Students should know how to create and edit parts, use work features, and create and annotate drawing views, etc.
