In this class, you will learn how to quickly create technical documents using Autodesk® Inventor® Publisher software. Technical documents are typically used for assembly instructions, installation instructions, user manuals, and process sheets. You can publish the documents to different formats including video, print, and interactive 3D content. You will learn how to import an Inventor assembly, document how the components are disassembled or assembled, add annotations, and publish the contents to a video, a Microsoft® Word file, a 3D PDF, and a mobile device using the Autodesk® 360 cloud computing platform. Finally, you will learn how to update the technical documents after a change is made to the Inventor assembly. You will also be introduced to Autodesk® 360 Publisher Technology Preview, which is free cloud-based technical documentation software.

Autodesk Inventor software can be used to save time, money, and scrap in manufacturing. Successfully manufacturing a product is not only about the final product, it also includes how you get there. In this class, we will show you how to use Inventor to work backwards to develop all the process steps of manufacturing a part. You first design the finished part you need, then use iParts and iLogic to engineer all the steps that are needed to get from a block of steel to a finished part. We will show you a workflow that takes advantage of the associative abilities of the "i" tools. As your finished product evolves, all of the production steps change as well. This workflow enables you to develop documentation for inspection, fabrication, work holding, fixturing, and machining 3D models of each progression. You can use stress analysis of parts in process to ensure that the process won't damage the final product. We will also offer tips and tricks that will help manufacturing engineers incorporate Inventor on the shop floor.
In this class, you will learn how you can use the power of the cloud to work with virtually any design data to create stunning visual 2D and 3D interactive documentation. Publish your 3D documentation in compelling ways, including to the Apple® iPad® and Android™ mobile devices as well as to HTML using WebGL. Turn product documentation into a competitive advantage for your company.
