More than just sheet metal!

The Inventor 2015: Sheet Metal Design course takes the guesswork out of developing sheet metal parts. It shows you how to use all the commands and gives you a detailed description of sheet metal rules and styles. Once you have these concepts under your belt your models will unfold correctly every time.

This course starts with a quick tour of the sheet metal environment and then dives into sheet metal styles and templates. These are the critical settings that assure your sheet metal models function properly. You'll learn about K-Factors and Bend Tables, and you'll practice using them. In fact the course comes with a K-Factor calculator that will help you understand these settings. It outputs the Bend Allowance, K-Factor, and setback setting.

The Sheet Metal Design course continues to develop your skills by showing how each command works and how all the settings within the commands affect the model. You'll practice creating custom punches and cutting across bends. You'll also use the Frame Generator to create structural members for products housed in sheet metal. This course covers everything.

Sheet metal assemblies are quickly created from scratch using Top Down Design. Multi-Body modeling is used to create assemblies from a single part file, and flat patterns are edited to modify folded models. When you're finished flat patterns are exported in DXF format for fabrication. Drawings showing the flat pattern and folded model are produced, and customized layer control highlights bend locations.

The Sheet Metal Design course is packed with tips and tricks that will make your sheet metal parts bulletproof.
