What can I say, today is not a good day; it's a really good day. Following this, features are added to the core and cavity, such as gate location, part processing settings and shrinkage. The Inventor Snap Fit feature provides an automated tool for creating both hook and loop type features. I find many ribbon implementations to be inefficient in that they often require more mouse clicks than the traditional menus that they replace.

I would hazard a guess that CAM is also going to feature quite heavily at some point soon. These differ from standard fillets in that they are not assigned to specific model edges.
Inventor has three different options to get the required form, and to add all of the various cut outs to ensure things are production-ready. The system provides a mix of tools that allow users to define these features automatically or dive in and add the geometry manually. In terms of Tooling, by combining the new plastic part design tools with an impressive level and wide ranging integration of tools from Moldflow, Inventor is now offering a capable environment in which to take your first steps into design for injection moulding.
Follow Lynn on Twitter. Inventor -- finally -- includes an Autosave function! If an industrial designer changes the shape in Alias, everything updates, right down to the mold design.
Snap fits are common in many products and can be incredibly hard to model manually, particularly when they need to autodfsk with complex forms. In the near decade of its development, the system has moved from being a standard 3D modelling and drawing creation tool into a comprehensive design and simulation system and is now showing signs of becoming a capable manufacturing solution as well.
Inventof capability is an example of Autodesk's continuing emphasis on digital prototyping. In terms of new tools for Plastic Part design, the technology is based on development work done by Attilio Rimoldi founder of ImpactXoft and offers an intelligent method of creating plastic parts.
Really Big Save As usual, Inventor includes a great many minor enhancements and additions. You can dock the ribbon at either side of the screen or you can float it like a super toolbar.

Hardware is then autofesk to link up the moulder, such as sprues and locating rings, ijventor specific elements for cooling channels. As with many features and functions within Inventor the new Tooling technology has been public knowledge for some time. Substitution allows shrink-wrapped parts to be swapped in and out of higher-level assemblies as needed.
With new assembly-based simulation tools and plastic part and mould design technology, Autodesk is moving closer to fulfilling its digital prototyping vision, writes Al Dean. Is there ground for adoption of these tools? Inventor introduces a layout mode and support for multibody parts.

Yes, they could do amazing things, but their Achilles' heel was autodeso for assemblies that had a large number of parts. If you want to switch to a different open file, you don't need to go to the usual Windows menu item drop-down list to select it, because each open file has its own tab at the bottom edge of the graphics screen. Top-Down Weather If you design static assemblies and subassemblies -- for example, those with parts that don't move relative to each other -- a typical strategy invwntor be to use top-down modeling.
Needless to say, this ability greatly speeds detailed design work. A shrink-wrapped part contains the mass properties of the sum of the parts in the original subassembly and retains any assembly constraints that were applied to the original parts.
Instead they are assigned to a feature autodezk as a pocket or boss and the system calculates which edges need to be filleted with the user controlling how they are applied.
The default ribbon interface no longer includes a menu bar because now all commands are located on the ribbon. You don't need to invoke a drop list to change to a different constraint option. But perhaps no longer? Inventor used to rely on a parts-only Ansys-based technology for in-built simulation. The real key is the knowledge-based nature of these tools.
In earlier releases of Inventoryou needed to use a technique known as skeletal modeling. Through a series of acquisitions Moldflow, Solid Dynamics, Plassotech and Algorthe company has been arming itself with a range of technologies that are only now starting to be added to the Inventor Suite of products.

Inventor 's new ribbon menu is context-sensitive and follows a logical left-to-right flow. The Inventor Snap Fit feature provides an automated tool for creating both hook and invnetor type features. All they want is the envelope size, shape, and mass properties.
