Working with Frame Generator in Autodesk Inventor

Course Description

NOTE: This is an online course delivered live via a web meeting.

Course Length = 2 hours

CPC PDH Credits = 2

Do you struggle with designing parametric frames? Is your current frame designing experience hampered with design changes that take too long? Ever wonder if you can create a reference file that will adapt framing designs? Then wonder no more. We’ll show you how to use the built-in design accelerator tool Frame Generator to accomplish this in Autodesk Inventor.

With this two-hour live, online course, you can quickly get up and running with the basic frame designs. Developed by AMS CAD Sr. Solutions Engineer Dan Taddeo, this course arms attendees with the best practices and knowledge required in creating powerful parametric frames inside of Autodesk Inventor.

This course includes digital reference materials and exercises that will help students follow the training session closely without having the need to create the data.
