Description

Description

This popular class returns with an updated look at the essential skills needed to model motion in Inventor software. The class will run through Inventor software's assembly tools to simulate constrained motion between parts and assemblies. First, we'll look at constraints and joints and how each can be used to control motion. From there, we'll look at some of the more advanced types of constraints, including motion and transitional constraints that are often used to model threaded parts, gears, slotted components, or cam followers. Finally, we'll put it all together and use the contact solver and drive tool to visualize a system's moving components. Take this class for a starting look at Inventor software's fundamental tools for modeling dynamic moving assemblies.

David Ponka

David Ponka is currently a senior applications expert for IMAGINiT Technologies. He has over 10 years of manufacturing design experience and a Bachelor of Industrial Design degree from Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. David provides design and data management consulting services, and he teaches design workflows using manufacturing applications from Autodesk, Inc. He began work as a mechanical designer in telecommunications for in-building radio equipment, and then he worked as an industrial designer at Mitel Networks. In years prior to working for IMAGINiT, Ponka also worked in the office furniture industry as a product engineer, where he not only created new products, but also helped to develop enterprise resource planning (ERP)-linked, CAD-to-CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) workflows for wood and fabric CNC (computer numerical control) machine automation.
