2017 Inventor Advanced Assemblies

Check out our new Inventor courses free of charge

We continue to update our Inventor courses following the release of 2017 Inventor software with an updated Advanced Assemblies course. Major topics in this course include:

  • Top-Down Assembly Design: enables designers to design components within the context of other components within the assembly to form tight parametric relationships.
  • Advanced Assembly Constraints: simulate the motion of components and troubleshoot constraints when they have conflicts or errors (a common problem when working in complex assemblies).
  • Assembly Features and Patterns: provide ways for designers to add features, such as cutouts to multiple components after they are assembled together, and replicate components that have multiple instances with an assembly design, such as screws and fasteners.
  • Representations: enable designers to create alternate versions of their assemblies for visibility purposes, such as Exploded views and Hiding and Showing particular components or details of the design.

Want to take a look at our Inventor courses? Just let us know, and we’ll add them to your Library – no charge!

Meshmixer and Matlab: Coming Soon

Several Meshmixer and Matlab courses are in the works

We’re wrapping up Autodesk Meshmixer courses, and they’ll be available in the next month or so (let us know if you’d like us to add them to your account – no cost!). The first two course to arrive will be Introduce to Meshmixer and Meshmixer Essentials. We also have Matlab content currently in production. We’ll keep you updated as we get closer to a release date. If you have any questions about these courses, please reach out! 

3D Printing and “Micro-facturing”

3D printing is changing the game in a number of industries, with a college student 3D printing his own braces, the city of Amsterdam using 3D printing to build not just a bridge but also the printer’s own support and scaffolding, and a cancer patient receiving the first 3D printed rib cage.  The possibilities for this technology seem endless as micro-facturing and mass customization permeate and change industry as a whole.

You can use SolidProfessor’s 3D printing courses to get up to speed on the tools, history, and application of 3D printing. You have access to these courses in your Library – if you have any questions, ask away!

Thanks for reading! If you have any questions, I’m just a call or an email away!
