This month I’ve been learning features of the 2016 Autodesk Inventor software from SDC Publication’s various manuals. Four different guides cover basic step-by-step introduction up to advanced use with part and assembly design including sheet metal. Prices are quite moderate.

Parametric 3D modeling has become an extremely powerful design tool in the 35 years I’ve been teaching and using it. Motion simulation, stress analysis, mold design, CNC machining path generation, detailed manufacturing drawings, and complex “sculptured” surfaces are just some of the capabilities. Tables of data for materials and different CNC machines are included in the application.

Starting August 26th, I’ll be teaching many of these concepts in my CADCAM course at Illinois Institute of Technology. I’ll also be using an Autodesk viewer to examine drawings produced by others in my professional consulting.

This is good that you’re are updating yourself to latest tech course and teaching them to students in university. CADCAM is typical and hard subject in information technology to understand. Using technology in teaching is very much needed and student will understand the teaching very easily as the teaching represents graphical images those can be understand easily than oral teaching.

The features of Parametric 3D modeling has been mentioned in this blog post and said that motion simulation, stress analysis, mold design, CNC machining path generation, detailed manufacturing drawings, and complex “sculptured” surfaces are its special capabilities.
