Description

Inventor Simulation is an essential part of the Autodesk Digital Prototyping process. It allows engineers and designers to explore and test components and products virtually, visualizing and simulating real-world performance.

Up and Running with Autodesk Inventor Simulation 2010 is dedicated to the requirements of Inventor users who need to quickly learn or refresh their skills, and apply the dynamic simulation, assembly analysis and optimization capabilities of Inventor Simulation 2010.

Key Features

  • Step-by-step approach gets you up and running fast
  • Discover how to convert CAD models to working digital prototypes, enabling you to enhance designs, reduce over design, failure, and the need to create physical prototypes
  • Extensive real-world design problems explore all the new and key features of the 2010 software, including assembly stress analysis; parametric optimization analysis; creating joints effectively; avoiding redundant joints; unknown force; logic conditions; and more…
  • Tips and guidance you to tackle your own design challenges with confidence
  • Companion site (elsevierdirect.com/companions) provides Simulation datasets for the design problems in the book that enable you to apply, experiment and manipulate solutions, and move on to solving your own design problems. Inventor Simulation is an essential part of the Autodesk Digital Prototyping process. It allows engineers and designers to explore and test components and products virtually, visualizing and simulating real-world performance.

Reviews

"The author is director of a company that provides training, support, and consulting for Autodesk Inventor. He writes that his intent is to address what he has seen as an apparent lack of confidence among users of the software to apply it fully. His text demonstrates the capabilities of the software through step-by-step explanation of how it was applied to various design problems. The author presents much of his information in the forms of flow charts, lists, screen grabs, and tables."--Mechanical Engineering Magazine
