Sheet Metal Design Modeling
This tutorial is intended for people who are familiar with the basics of working with Autodesk Inventor and now want to learn all aspects of sheet metal design in Autodesk Inventor. The manual is divided into two main parts.
Basic techniques for creating sheet metal parts
In the first part, you will learn how to configure the Inventor Sheet Metal Environment and complete a number of tutorials to illustrate the use of specific Inventor tools specifically for sheet metal design, unfolding, saving DXF files, and creating sheet metal specific drawing documentation.
Advanced techniques for creating sheetmetal parts
In the second part of this tutorial, you will learn about the tools and techniques that go beyond the sheet metal design module's tools to help you design more complex sheet metal parts. It will show the application of selected solid modeling tools, the use of surface modeling and the multi-body technique that facilitate the design of various types of sheet metal parts and obtaining the flat pattern of the parts.
To complete all the exercises, you need a set of exercise files that must be downloaded and unpacked to the default location before you start working with the e-book.
