Create Full-Featured Digital Prototypes the Inventor Way
Whether you're designing airplanes, appliances, or industrialmachinery, this complete guide to Autodesk Inventor 2010 shows youhow to produce and manage build-worthy 3D virtual prototypes fromthe ground up. Inventor experts Curtis Waguespack and Loren Jahrausnot only pack this reference with veteran insights and valuableengineering principles, they also cover topics that are rarelydocumented elsewhere.
You'll receive a thorough grounding in basic concepts beforemoving on to a wealth of advanced topics for professionalenvironments, including standard and sheet metal part design, thedos and don'ts of working with large assemblies, setting upprofessional workflows, effectively sharing data, and more. Thebook fully covers Inventor 2010 and Inventor Professional 2010,including newly enhanced simulation tools for motion and finiteelement analysis.
