Inventing the Civil World – Inventor for Civil 3D and InfraWorks Users
Can you handle the pressure of inventing for civil? If you need a bit of help, give this class a thumbs-up.
This is a down-and-dirty course in Inventor and Inventor LT for Civil Engineers, Civil Designers and Civil CAD Managers. We’ll cover the skills needed in Inventor to create parts and assemblies specifically for infrastructure projects. We’ll then add those parts to Parts Editor and export them to gravity or pressure networks in both Civil 3D and InfraWorks. During the class, we’ll design a curb inlet in three parts, import it into Parts Editor, and place it into an assembly. From the assemblies and families in Parts Editor, we’ll create a Civil 3D Parts catalog. Lastly, we’ll import the new catalog into Civil 3D and apply the new part to a storm drainage system. As a bonus, we’ll repeat all these steps and show you how to import the new part into InfraWorks and apply it to a storm drainage system there. If the gravity of your infrastructure designs is serious enough that you need to reinvent parts, this class is for you!
Inventor Presentations – 10 Tips Revealed!
The Inventor Presentation environment had a major upgrade in 2017. Have you gotten up to speed with the new interface tools to create your exploded views and animations? If not, you are definitely going to want to vote for this course.
In this hands-on lab, users will discover the Inventor 2018 Presentation environment and explore the options for creating presentations. Storyboards will be explained for use with more complex assemblies. Tweaks and the Timeline will be demonstrated for creating assembly and disassembly instructions. Snapshots and the other publishing tools will be used to create drawings, videos, and images for downstream recipients. Attend this class to learn the 6 tips that will help you create the presentations you could only dream of showing your clients before now!
Drones, Cameras, and Fusion 360! Oh, Maya!
Who needs an FAA Drone License when you can create your own drone in Fusion 360 and animate it in Maya! If you are intrigued, give this class a thumbs-up.
Fusion users, discover the benefits of adding dynamic camera animations, textures, and procedurally-generated environments to your products by using Maya! Maya users, discover the benefits of adding Fusion 360 to your workflow to speed up the hard surface modeling process! In this class, we’ll model a drone using Fusion 360, then we’ll transfer the assembly files into Maya to create a fly-through animation for your drone by taking advantage of the rapid environment creation tools of MASH. Although we could drone on about this unique product collaboration, it’s time to attend this innovative interoperability session where Fusion and Maya marry prototype and simulation to create stunning, professional-quality presentations.
3D Printing and Prototype Development with Fusion 360
3D printing has revolutionized the design and manufacturing production workflow, making the creation of design prototypes as easy as pushing a button. Fusion 360 software has become an indispensable tool in this revolution, enabling designers and engineers to create and iterate their design faster than ever before. To learn more, give this class a thumbs-up!
This course will step through the process of developing, printing, and iterating the design of a real product prototype; learning the different phases of the design used to create a 3D-printable final product. Autodesk Fusion 360 and Print Studio are used every day for a variety of purposes, from the office, to the house, to production and marketing. This course will explore the creation of a unique spinner toy that you can assemble, personalize and take home with you. This session features Fusion 360 and Print Studio, and a live 3D printing demonstration.
Combining Autodesk Inventor and 3D Printing in Early Prototype Development
3D printing has revolutionized the design and manufacturing production workflow, making the creation of design prototypes as easy as pushing a button. Autodesk Inventor has been a central tool in this revolution, allowing designers and engineers to create and iterate their design faster than ever before. To find out more, give this class a thumbs-up.
This course will step through the process of developing, printing and iterating the design of a real product prototype. There are products used every day for a variety of purposes, from the office to the house. This course will explore the development of a unique commercial product. You will step through the concept development process, designing the product, examining the tools used to create a 3D-printable, final product.
3D Printing: A Maturing Industry– What’s it All About?
To discover how 3D printing is being used every day in companies to impact their bottom line, enhance productivity and make better products, give this class a thumbs-up.
Whether it’s being used in rapid prototyping and consumer products or small-run manufacturing, 3D printing has become an important part of the workflows of many engineers, fabrication companies, hobbyists, and artists. This course will look at the landscape of the 3D printing industry as it relates to today’s engineering and production environments. From creating art to engineering prototypes, this course will also explore the expanding use of 3D printers and their place in an enhanced design workflow. The course discusses the current state and the future implications of 3D printing in the real world.
3D Printing in the Real World
For a look at real-world examples and an interactive discussion of how you can use 3D printing in your office, vote for this class.
The introduction of cost-effective, high-quality 3D printers is giving designers and engineers the ability to print prototypes right in their office when they need them. The implementation of 3D printing into a design environment is becoming a reality for more and more design professionals. This course will explore the process behind developing an in-house 3D printing capability and what the cost/benefits are of doing so. Additionally, with the 3D printer landscape in constant flux, what are the benefits and drawbacks of the different technologies for model production? What materials are available? We will also discuss choosing a printer that fits both your needs and your budget; and once you settle on a printer, what it takes to maintain it.
