Autodesk Inventor, Sheet Metal Design

This course aims to explore all aspects of the very powerful Sheet Metal design technology built into Autodesk Inventor as standard. It covers all aspects of the functionality starting with the creation and set up of sheet metal styles to automate the process of setting bend and unfolding conditions and continuing right through the sheet metal design process to the final output and documenting of the developed flat pattern.


The topics presented in this course assume prior knowledge of 3D solid part modelling using the Autodesk Inventor software. Knowledge of sheet metal processing is also helpful as delegates will learn how to use the sheet metal design tools. Those attendfing this course should have ideally attended the Autodesk Inventor Introduction to Solid Modelling or Inventor Certified User - Part 1 Courses or have equivalent experience.
