Sheet Metal Design

Master Inventor!

Learn Sheet Metal even if you don't make sheet metal parts!

Sheet metal couldn’t be easier to learn. You’ll pick up tips and tricks that advanced professionals use on a daily basis.

Even if you don’t design sheet metal parts this course shows you tricks and techniques that apply to standard parts and assemblies. So it’s a must see for everyone.

Need to learn how to fold and unfold your parts successfully? This course has you covered. You’ll learn how to make your sheet metal models bulletproof. With proper technique, they’ll fold and unfold every time.

You’ll learn all the sheet metal commands. You’ll master setting up sheet metal rules to streamline your work, and you’ll have a clear understanding of how bend tables, K-Factors, and Bend Allowances are applied to your sheet metal parts.

Need to learn how to use the Frame Generator and how to work in the Weldment Environment? This course has you covered here as well. It covers all this and much more.
