This class presents a workflow for effectively using the simulation tools in the new Sim 360 cloud-based services, which are similar in terms of ease of use and workflows to the Inventor® Simulation. After this class, you will be able to confidently apply this technology to your own workplace. The class focuses on the additional benefits to be gained on top of the simulation features that are available in Inventor® Professional software, including cloud computing, Fusion 360™, and fatigue analysis. We demonstrate real-life customer examples and show how Sim 360 can be effectively used to set up and run analyses to help you make innovative products.
An Autodesk simulation solutions manager with more than 20 years of experience in the manufacturing field, including working at Rolls Royce, British Aerospace and Nuclear Electric. Has been involved with Autodesk simulation software when it was first introduced, and is well-known throughout the Autodesk Simulation community, worldwide. He has authored the Up and Running with Inventor Simulation books, which are available worldwide, via Amazon. He also runs a dedicated forum for simulation users on LinkedIn -Up and Running with Inventor Simulation.
I have worked for Autodesk for 8 years as a User Experience Designer. I've worked on Inventor specializing in the areas of Sketching and Assembly modeling. I also specialize in Autodesk Simulation products the last 3 years. I have a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Oregon State University. I have 9 years of experience designing Off-highway equipment and 7 of those years I used Inventor®.
In this hands-on lab we go through the basics of Sim 360 cloud service. We go over the user interface and perform several analyses including structural fatigue and thermal using the power of the cloud. We also cover the basics of model simplification, meshing convergence, analysis setup, and results interpretation.
