Inventor Structural Design and Analysis – Essentials

This course will introduce you to the Frame Generator and Frame Analysis Environment. The course will go through the user interface and workflows to enable you to create 3D line/sketch models to be used in the Frame Generator assembly environment.

During the course, we will take the frame generated assembly into the frame analysis environment to enable you to analyse the structure. The course is ideal if you are involved in designing structures in your day to day job and would like the ability to design and analyse structures to help you make informed decisions.
