Autodesk Inventor Professional Simulation

Course Description

Course Length = 2 days

CPC PDH Credits = 14

This course is designed for experienced Autodesk® Inventor® users.

Learn the fundamental principles and recommended workflows for analyzing designs and creating dynamic simulations of mechanisms using Autodesk Inventor Professional. Users learn how to validate digital prototypes by simulating the operation of mechanisms and motorized assemblies. They also learn how to analyze parts and assemblies, perform parametric design studies, and use modal analysis. Hands-on exercises representing real-world, industry-specific design scenarios are included.
