Autodesk Inventor® 2017-18
FEA Made Simple

Master Inventor!

Learn to use Finite Element Analysis (FEA)!

If you’re unsure about how to use FEA let this course ease your mind. It simplifies the process and shows you how to trust the results.

It doesn’t teach heavy mathematics. It teaches simple and effective ways to create professional FEA reports. It also shows you how to confirm the accuracy of your study results using simple calculations.

FEA is a powerful tool that will help you quickly find design problems. It will also help you solve them. You just need to know the details about the data you input into your simulations, the details about operations applied to data, and the details about simulation reports.

The rest is easy. By the end of this course, you’ll be confident about your work.
