Dynamic Simulation Made Simple

Master Inventor!

Learn more than you thought possible!

Did you know you can use Dynamic Simulation to demonstrate the functionality of assemblies to your colleges and customers? It turns out that Dynamic Simulation may even be better at doing this than Inventor Studio.

As you may know, the development of products and assemblies is a continuous exploration. The more you learn about the assembly the more you need to know. As time goes on you gain an expert understanding of the product, and you begin to feel confident about its design.

The Dynamic Simulation model can help play a strong roll in this endeavor. In fact, it can help streamline the process.
So how does it work? You create a simulation of real world constraints, forces, pressures, friction, etc. and try to make your assembly perform the same way a physical prototype will perform.

So you make it perform like a real world prototype, and along the way this helps you improve your design. For example, you can simulate the assembly of components only to find it’s impossible to assemble. So you will need to modify the design.

This course helps you gain a strong understanding of how the Dynamic Simulation module works starting with simple parts and assemblies. In fact, you’ll explore most of the commands while studying an assembly of two cubes. Once you have the basics under your belt you’ll begin work on a trebuchet.

Here you will quickly ramp up your skills. You’ll practice changing parameters and you’ll explore the results of your work. You’ll practice working with various impact methods and joints to establish best practices. You’ll also learn how bouncing objects can simulate impact. In fact, this course comes with a bounce calculator that will help you master this concept.

By the time you finish this course you will have a strong understanding of a workflow designed to streamline your work. You’ll feel confident using Dynamic Simulation to model your assemblies, and you’ll know the best methods to use.
