Autodesk Inventor® 2019
FEA Made Simple

Master Inventor!

Yes, you too can use Finite Element Analysis (FEA)!

Turn Inventor Simulation into a tool that enhances your productivity. The FEA Made Simple course for Autodesk Inventor 2019 does just that. It doesn’t teach heavy mathematics. It teaches you how to use FEA efficiently. You’ll learn how to confirm the accuracy of your study results by using simple methods to calculate them, the details about the data you input into your simulations, the details about operations applied to data, and you’ll learn how simulation settings affect the quality of your study results.

Many of our customers are not engineers and don’t have a strong mathematical background. So you might think you can’t effectively use Inventor’s FEA module. That’s simply not true.

You can use simple math and easy to understand procedures to assure your FEA simulation reports are accurate. You just need to learn what to look for and how to use the FEA module.

For the mathematical engineering geniuses reading this, we’ve got you covered as well. This course was written and produced by David Melvin, PE. He explains how to simplify complex stress analysis into simple to follow procedures. So there’s plenty of opportunity for you to check his work. In the end Inventor’s FEA module checks his work, which is the whole point.

Once you learn simple ways of estimating stress you can use them to confirm Inventor outputs reasonably accurate results. So the theme of this course is the same as for all our courses. You will learn how to feel confident about your work while streamlining the process and increasing productivity.

So this is a good opportunity to learn how to put the FEA module to good use.
