  • Learn how to use flexibility to simulate motion between subassemblies

Description

Description

This class will focus on how to use Inventor to simulate motion in assemblies. We will run through the different tools available in Inventor to simulate constrained motion. The class will start by looking at the standard assembly constraint and joint tools and how they each control motion differently by allowing degrees of freedom. Moving on from there the class will use drive constraints and the contact solver to move components in an assembly. Finally we will return to the constraint tool to examine some of the more advanced options for motion such as rotation and transitional constraints that can be used to model threaded parts, gears or belts and slot or cam followers.

Target Audience

David Ponka

David Ponka received his bachelor of industrial design degree from Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He is currently a senior applications expert for IMAGINiT Technologies, where he provides consulting services and teaches fundamental and advanced courses for Autodesk, Inc., applications. David began work as a mechanical designer of telecommunications products for in-building radio applications, and he was also an industrial designer at Mitel Networks. In years prior to working for IMAGINiT, David also worked in the office furniture industry as a product engineer, where he not only designed new product but also developed custom CNC (computer numerical control) machine automation and CAM applications for wood and fabric production.
