Essentials Course Overview
This course will introduce you the fundamental principles and recommended workflows for analyzing designs and creating dynamic simulations of mechanisms. You will learn to validate digital prototypes by simulating the operation of mechanisms and motorized assemblies. You will also learn how to analyze parts and assemblies, perform parametric design studies, and use modal analysis.
The primary objective of this courseware is to introduce users to the user interface, tools, and recommended workflows in the Autodesk Inventor Professional Dynamic Simulation and Stress Analysis environments.
