Up and Running with Autodesk Inventor Simulation 2011
A step-by-step guide to engineering design solutions
AutodeskÂ® InventorÂ® Simulation is an essential element in the Autodesk Digital Prototyping workflow that enables engineers, designers and manufacturers to transition from traditional design and physical prototyping methods to the innovative use of 3D modeling for evaluating form, fit and function. This allows virtual exploration and testing of objects, components and products before they are made, saving critical development time and cost. Autodesk Inventor Simulation provides the dynamic tools required to revolutionize the product design process, but these tools are complex to learn and use to their full potential.
Up and Running with AutodeskÂ® InventorÂ® Simulation 2011 is dedicated to the requirements of Inventor users who need to quickly learn or refresh their skills and apply the dynamic simulation, stress analysis, frame analysis, and optimization capabilities of Inventor Simulation 2011. Providing clear guidance and all-important real-world tutorials, the step-by-step, heavily-illustrated approach of this book will help designers, engineers, and manufacturers of all skill levels become Simulation experts.
Primary audience: Design engineers and engineering managers in mechanical, manufacturing, product development and design fields needing to take projects to concept level, including basic strength analysis and validation; Engineering design consultants offering a full design package from concept through to digital prototyping, detailed design and manufacture information.
Secondary audience: Instructors and students on engineering courses using Inventor.
