Free Inventor Essentials - Multi-body Part Design

Inventor Essentials - Multi-body Part Design Free Pluralsight course (one week) by Joris Steurs. This course covers Autodesk Inventor 2017.

Publisher’s Description

Multi-body Part Design allows you to model complex parts that can be utilized in practice. In this course, Inventor Essentials - Multi-body Part Design, you’ll learn how designing a part with the use of separate bodies gives you possibilities to model more complex parts in Autodesk’s Inventor. First, you’ll explore the different ways of building a part that holds more than one body, and you’ll discover that there are three different ways of getting to a multi-body part. Next, you’ll dig in deeper into each of these three different possibilities where you’ll implement this knowledge into some practical examples, each example will be built with the multi-body technique. In one example you’ll be changing the volume and some details on a bottle that is non-native to Inventor. In other examples you’ll use the multi-body technique to do something completely different. Finally, you’ll learn some tips that you can apply when you want to reuse or copy your multi-body design in a different configuration or with a different dimension. By the end of this course, you’ll have a good overview of the possibilities of a multi-body design approach. Software required: Autodesk Inventor 2017.
