The Autodesk® Inventor® 2015 Update for 2013/2014 Users training guide introduces the new concepts and solid modeling techniques that have been added to both the Autodesk Inventor 2014 and Autodesk Inventor 2015 software. The training guide covers enhancements to the most commonly used environments and contains practices for practicing the new concepts.
The major topics covered include:Interface Enhancements Sketching Enhancements Part Modeling Enhancements Assembly Enhancements Drawing Enhancements Sheet Metal Enhancements
The training guide begins with changes to the overall interface and enhancements that cover global settings and import/export support. The second chapter covers the sketch environment and contains many topics that have been added to ease sketch creation and how you work and control constraint settings. A number of enhancements have also been added to existing and new part modeling tools. These changes are covered in Chapter 3.
In addition to changes made to existing features, such as fillets, sweeps, threads, and iParts, new workflows for simplifying models, attaching point cloud data, and using direct edit to make changes to a model are also covered. Chapters 4 and 5 cover all of the changes to the assembly environment. These include changes to component placement, setting up relationships using Constraints and Joints, and assembly simplification tools. Additional assembly enhancements to section and design views and the new ability to reuse frame members are also covered.
The final chapter in the training guide covers the drawing environment. The topics discussed are divided so that all of the view and annotation enhancements are covered. The training guide appendices introduce the Freeform part modeling workflow as a non-parametric design methodology and the changes made in the Sheet Metal environment.
This training guide assumes knowledge of the Autodesk Inventor 2013 or 2014 software. Students should know how to create and edit parts, create assemblies, and set up drawing files to create and annotate drawing views.
