Become a better designer in AutoCAD Plant 3D software by using these tricks of the trade. In this class, you will learn better ways to route pipe, more-efficient ways to develop platforms and structures, tricks to equipment creation using Inventor software for simplifying, and some Catalog editing tricks. This session features AutoCAD Plant 3D and Inventor Professional.
This class will explore the implementation of an efficient workflow for 3D scanning of large plants. From laser scanning at the field until a point cloud, which can be combined with a 2D layout and 3D models, our scan projects count regularly more than 100 scans. After the scans are taken, the scans are removed from noise and then divided in layers according to the flow sheet. The buildings are also on a separate layer and divided into roof, walls, and floor. These scans are then combined in Navisworks software with a 3D model of a new line generated at our company. The 3D models are made with Inventor software. A 2D layout, which we receive from the customer, is also attached. This workflow has been improved on a lot since the start, and this is what we want to teach in this class. Recently we purchased a drone to capture photos at places that are not reachable for our scanner (for example, ducting on a roof). A 3D point cloud can then be derived from those photos and combined with the laser scan point cloud This session features ReCap, Inventor Professional, and Navisworks Manage.
In this session, attendees will learn about and discuss how to achieve top-down design with Inventor software sheet metal functionality. Multiple body was supported in general modeling for many years, and customers and internal experts have worked out many good approaches and workflows. Now it is time to learn and explore sheet metal multiple-body multiple rule usages. Whether you start from a surface body or sketch skeleton, whether you work with local parameters or imported external parameters, you will learn how to make use of them in new top-down sheet metal design. Learn how to add downstream features for sheet metal bodies with separate rules, and how to deal with features for sheet metal bodies using different rules. Learn how to link parameters from sheet metal bodies using different rules. To complete the workflow, learn how to make parts with specific materials and rules. This class is designed to assist you in adopting workflows for productive sheet metal design, and to explore more scenarios from your perspective. This session features Inventor Professional.
Come and discover what the Inventor Product Development Team is working on for future releases of Inventor software and related offerings to help you in the future of making things. This session features Inventor Professional.
This class will cover how to create and communicate Inventor software design and manufacturing data using 3D PDF documents. We will examine the various options available in Inventor software and how those options affect the creation of 3D PDF files. We will also show how to view, measure, mark up, manipulate, and collaborate using the Adobe Reader. We will explore how to customize your 3D PDF files by creating PDF template files and forms using Adobe Acrobat Pro. Finally, we will show you several examples of 3D PDF files that you can use to communicate with customers, suppliers, and manufacturers. This session features Inventor Professional and AutoCAD.
The iLogic component of Inventor software is a powerful tool that you can utilize to automate the design process, improving efficiency and quality of work. This hands-on lab will look at the ability of iLogic to automate the design process, making it easier for end users to create designs. In this class you will create iLogic Rules and code that will turn an Inventor software model into a “Design Master Model” to churn out many different variations of the “Design Master Model” for production / manufacturing use. We will touch on API code to generate user parameters and code structure that will automate the design by reading data from an embedded spreadsheet. At the end of this class, you will be able to apply the principles learned to generate ideas to automate designs for your company. This session features Inventor Professional.
This class covers a workflow that allows you as an Inventor Professional user to drive your Tube and Pipe assemblies with a master sketch. You will learn how to create and update robust routes, jacketed piping, piping insulation, drawings and assemblies for individual spools and Piping Layout drawings. You will learn how to use custom content from the Inventor Content Center to populate the routes you create. You will learn how to update and change your routes. You will learn how to document pipe spools in individual drawings as well as in piping layout drawings. In addition, you will learn how to nominalize hose lengths in your BOMs.<br/><br/>
We are inviting you to this participatory research session to innovate and shape the future of Inventor software—and really enhance your productivity. We will use several LUMA methods to facilitate our discussions. The class will begin with a “What’s on Your Radar” practice to help attendees discuss Inventor software problems and assign them with weights. Then attendees will generate wide-ranging ideas on those pieces with no constraints in a Creative Matrix practice given a short amount of time. We’ll pick some of the ideas combining with our own preprepared ideas for a “Buy a Feature” practice to identify the most valuable areas for the Inventor Team to focus on. The Inventor UX Team will facilitate the entire session. Attendees need only to free their minds and speak out what the ideal Inventor software could be. This session features Inventor Professional and Vault Professional.
Gain a better understanding of how Inventor software’s iLogic functionality works, and learn about other tools that can help make writing iLogic rules much easier. In addition, learn how you can use Inventor software’s API and the .NET Framework to create much more powerful rules. Finally, learn what capabilities Inventor software add-ins provide so you can make a logical choice about which provides the best fit for you. This session features Inventor Professional and Inventor Professional.
This class will be an introduction or reintroduction to Inventor software. It will also go into general detail about a lot of the common issues that come up on the Inventor Forums. It is generally understood that there are more intermediate and advanced Inventor software classes at Autodesk University; however, sometimes you need to go back to the basics and introduce/reintroduce people to some of these features they might not know or understand—whether it's how to find them, or how to use them. This session features Inventor Professional.
In this class we will follow new design workflows made possible by the introduction of Inventor’s shape generator, mesh tools and modern 3D printing technologies. The class will start by looking at the physical properties of current 3D printed plastics and metals. Then, with the material specifications, required for proper design simulation, we will configure the shape generator to automatically create an optimized shape based on sample design requirements. Using the resulting mesh, the class will examine the ins and outs of two separate workflow paths; using the generated mesh directly for manufacture & placement in an assembly, or modifying the part using Inventor’s mesh and surface tools to tweak the design. Join this session for a close up look at the possibilities in generative design by combining Inventor’s shape generator and mesh handling with modern 3D printing capabilities. This session features Inventor Professional. AIA Approved
This class will cover industry best practices and workflows for 3D substation design projects utilizing Inventor Professional software and the Substation Design Solutions toolkit. In addition, we will cover integration of Vault Professional software to maximize the efficiency of the 3D modeling processes. We will detail processes and procedures to ensure consistency, flexibility, and overall usability of 3D models, and we’ll learn how to change the way substation designs are currently done. We will present Vault categories, lifecycles, and states as a means to demonstrate utilization of 3D model data and how it can be integrated into existing systems to facilitate custom reporting and data analytics.
