Create Full-Featured Digital Prototypes the Inventor Way

Whether you're designing airplanes, appliances, or industrial machinery, this complete guide to Autodesk Inventor 2010 shows you how to produce and manage build-worthy 3D virtual prototypes from the ground up. Inventor experts Curtis Waguespack and Loren Jahraus not only pack this reference with veteran insights and valuable engineering principles, they also cover topics that are rarely documented elsewhere.

You'll receive a thorough grounding in basic concepts before moving on to a wealth of advanced topics for professional environments, including standard and sheet metal part design, the dos and don'ts of working with large assemblies, setting up professional workflows, effectively sharing data, and more. The book fully covers Inventor 2010 and Inventor Professional 2010, including newly enhanced simulation tools for motion and finite element analysis.

Coverage includes:

  1. Understanding the "Inventor way" of 3D mechanical design

  2. Using the new interface effectively and productively

  3. Transitioning from AutoCAD or third-party 3D design packages

  4. Learning all aspects of part and assembly design, including sketching and modeling

  5. Mastering advanced sheet metal design techniques

  6. Exploring little-known strategies for large assemblies

  7. Leveraging cable and harness capabilities, tube and pipe design, and dynamic simulation and stress analysis features

  8. Creating multibody parts and plastic part features
