Autodesk Inventor iCopy
If you have not already heard, Autodesk's Fusion 360 is blowing up the design industry around the globe. The updates for the product are coming about every month and I am loving it. Fusion allows the user to do a boat load of items, from design to simulation to CAM and more...
One of the biggest problems I see with Fusion is learning all the new features that are being added to the product. You may be a user of another CAD product, but some command operations do not always transfer from one to the next. In this post I will explain how to use the commands in the Animation environment of Fusion. Download Skateboard Model
Not too long ago, the cost of performing high-level analysis and simulation was a complicated and costly process, that was rarely necessary. However, things have changed in today's business climate, of being low-cost and highly competitive in this fast-paced world. We have to be able to iterate and improve designs quickly, with accuracy, and without the burden and time-consuming nature of prototyping. Who has the budget to do that these days? This leaves us with one alternative... Simulation!

There has been a lot of rumbling from the industry about the differences between Autodesk Inventor and Fusion 360. This rumbling is not just from software users, but also happening in the Autodesk Reseller Channel.
First, I would like to inform you, the reader, that there is a place for both products in the mechanical design industry. This post will cover the comparison of Autodesk Inventor Professional to fully function of Fusion 360.
Are you a layout draftsperson, who is constantly bugging fellow co-workers, who use Inventor, to send you actual .dwg files of their assemblies?
Do you feel like you're waiting on the back-burner to place views in a layout?
There are three (3) different types of representations in the assembly environment. They are all located under the Representation folder, in the model browser. The different representation types are View, Position, and Level of Detail.
For those who have opened or used frame generator, you may think it is strictly used for straight framework and platform type jobs.
Most companies have a list of standard sheet metal materials and thicknesses. Why not take a minute to take your list and create a template in Inventor to match your standards?
With this template, you can select from a list of the different styles, rather than having to change them each time you need a different material. Here are 13 easy steps to creating a custom sheet metal template in Autodesk Inventor:
For months, all anyone has talked about is R2... And for months, I've had no idea what they meant by R2. Was it a new droid in the upcoming version of Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Is it the new R2D2?

While many manufacturers of building materials and equipment don’t use the Revit format for their native design, the architects, engineers, and construction contractors who use and install their products do use Revit. Therefore, a manufacturer whose product is readily available in the Revit format significantly increases their chances of being specified as the basis of design in the construction documents. This increased exposure can lead to better brand recognition, which can lead to increased sales.
The Dilemma: How to get the products into a Revit format?
