Inventor Sheet Metal Fundamentals

Autodesk Inventor Sheet Metal Fundamentals introduces the concepts and techniques of sheet metal modelling with the Autodesk Inventor software. The structure of the course follows the typical stages of using Inventor. That is, to create sheet metal parts, edit them, generate flat patterns, and document the designs in drawings.


On completion of this course students will have been given the opportunity to acquire knowledge and understanding of tools and concepts that develop the skills necessary to be able to:
• Navigate the Autodesk Inventor Sheet Metal interface
• Understand the Sheet metal design process
• Create base Faces, Contour Flanges, and Contour Rolls
• Create secondary Faces, Contour Flanges, and Contour Rolls
• Apply Sheet metal Parameters
• Create Flanges
• Create Hems, Folds, and Bends
• Create Corner Rounds and Chamfers
• Create Sheet Metal Cuts (Holes, Cuts, and Punch Features)
• Create Corner Seams (Seams and Mitres)
• Generate Flat Patterns
• Create Lofted Flanges
• Rips
• Unfolding and Refolding
• Document and Annotate drawings
• Convert solid model to sheet metal models
