Autodesk Inventor, built-in intell and advanced adaptivity

Make better design decisions by using real world limitations provided by external sources and a specific workflow.

In this course we continue to make robust part templates in line with the limitations of your machines, stock material and supplied parts that are available.

What you’ll learn

  • Part templates that give you real time information ..
  • Part templates that are adaptive..
  • Adaptive assembly using a driver part..
  • Adaptive assembly built with adaptive subassemblies..
  • Reading and writing to excel as a database.

Requirements

In this course we continue to make robust part templates in line with the limitations of your machines, stock material and supplied parts that are available.

We do this by including a little iLogic in the template that will look up the data you want in a database like Excel.

 

This will result that all your part properties like dimensions and materials are checked with Excel and getting external information back from this Excel database into the part, making it extremely easy to verify, for example, available stock for your part or for the availability of machines to produce this part.

 

Also you will learn how to make adaptive assemblies that contain adaptive sub assemblies themselves and how to make copies from them for later use without the risk that the copies interfere with each other.

 

These assemblies are always controlled by a reference called a ‘driver part’ and this will result that all your part features, dimensions and assembly components are controlled from one place while making it extremely easy to adjust your new assembly to your needs.

 

See this whole process from start to finish, how to set up the BOM correctly and on top you’ll learn some basic coding in iLogic along the way.
