Learn Sheet Metal even if you don't make sheet metal parts!
The concepts developed in the Sheet Metal Design course can be applied to standard parts and assemblies. So don’t pass this course up.
You will learn new methods of top down design while exploring the details of sheet metal commands and procedures.
Can’t unfold a part? Learn how to make this possible even when you’ve constructed the part without sheet metal commands. Your understanding of what Inventor uses to make a part unfold will allow you to take charge of all your sheet metal parts and assemblies. It will improve your understanding of the development process, and it will change the way you work with assemblies.
A common task when working with sheet metal parts is the development of structural support. So this course dives deep into the use of the Frame Generator. You’ll learn how to build frames from your sheet metal parts, and you’ll learn how to build stand alone frames.
K-Factors, Bend Tables, and Bend Allowances will be a breeze after watching this course. If you think these concepts are complex, think again. This course shows you how simple they actually are. It even comes with a K-Factor calculator, which calculates everything.
So this is a powerful course. Don’t pass this one up.
