Sheet Metal Design

Master Inventor!

More than just sheet metal!

Autodesk Inventor 2014: Sheet Metal Design expands your modeling skills for both sheet metal and standard parts. You’ll learn how to use all the sheet metal commands, how to assure your models unfold, and how to create custom punches. You’ll also use the Frame Generator to create structures housed in sheet metal. It covers everything you’ll need to create professional sheet metal parts.

One of the critical aspects that will help you succeed is your ability to create realistic sheet metal styles. Styles control all sheet metal operations. So you need to get this right. Fortunately this course shows you the details of how styles work and how to set them up.

All the sheet metal commands are covered with real world considerations. For example corner reliefs, and seams can require customization for your operation. This course shows you how to customize every setting. You’ll know that the folded models your create will produce unfolded flat patterns that match your operation. It just takes the knowledge you’ll gain from this course and the knowledge you have about your operation. It also comes with a K-Factor calculator to help you quickly adjust your models and styles to match your operation with the least number of iterations.

The Sheet Metal Design course is packed with tips and tricks that will help you create professional sheet metal parts.
