The Autodesk Inventor Sheet Metal Design training course introduces the concepts and techniques of sheet metal modeling with the Autodesk Inventor software.
The structure of the course follows the typical stages of using Inventor. That is, to create sheet metal parts, edit them, generate flat patterns, and document the designs in drawings.
By attending Autodesk Inventor Sheet Metal Design workshop, Participants will learn:
- Sheet metal design process
- Creating base Faces, Contour Flanges, and Contour Rolls
- Creating secondary Faces, Contour Flanges, and Contour Rolls
- Creating Flanges
- Creating Hems, Folds, and Bends
- Corner Rounds and Chamfers
- Sheet Metal Cuts (Holes, Cuts, and Punch Features)
- Generating Flat Patterns
- Lofted Flanges
- Unfolding and Refolding
- Documentation and Annotation of drawings
- Converting solid model to sheet metal models
- Sheet Metal Styles
Autodesk Inventor Sheet Metal Design class assumes prior knowledge of 3D solid part modeling using the Autodesk Inventor software. Participants also need to be experienced with the Windows operating system. In addition, some background with designing and drafting 3D parts is recommended. Although it is not required, knowledge of sheet metal processing is helpful as Participants learn to use the sheet metal design tools.
