Thousands of engineers around the world are making better design decisions using the simulation tools in Inventor Pro. As success and comfort levels increase, engineers need to look beyond the limited questions that can be asked of this linear static solution to truly understand and respond to the demands of innovation. Autodesk Nastran In-CAD brings advanced analysis techniques to the Inventor platform allowing engineers to explore nonlinear, vibratory, buckling and other behaviors or failure conditions within the context of an interactive design and modeling session. Attendees of this workshop will be taught to recognize the need for these solutions and how to take their Inventor digital prototypes thru advanced tests. Additionally, they will be introduced to the inputs required and the outputs produced so more exacting and precise engineering decisions can be made.
Designers and engineers looking to sharpen their skills and increase their personal market value
Vince has been a consultant, instructor, and advocate for FEA in product design for over 20 years. He has written 3 books on the subject, including the popular "Building Better Products with Finite Element Analysis" as well as numerous articles for Desktop Engineering & Design News magazines. Vince has been an invited speaker and instructor with engagements all over the United States as well as Europe, South Africa & Asia. He was nominated by peers to lead the founding of NAFEMS North America (www.nafems.org) and was selected by this organization to the Founding Member list for the international Professional Simulation Engineer program based on his career contributions to the simulation industry. Prior to focusing on simulation, Vince was a design engineer and engineering manager accumulating numerous patents, many due to novel uses of FEA (at the time) and learning first-hand the importance of properly applied simulation for improved innovation.
