Expert authors Curtis Waguespack and Thom Tremblay developed thisdetailed reference and tutorial with straightforward explanations,real-world examples, and practical tutorials that focus squarely onteaching Inventor tips, tricks, and techniques. The authorsextensive experience across industries and their Inventor expertiseallows them to teach the software in the context of real-worldworkflows and work environments. They present topics that arepoorly documented elsewhere, such as design tactics for largeassemblies, effective model design for different industries,strategies for effective data and asset sharing across teams, using2D and 3D data from other CAD systems, and improving designs byincorporating engineering principles.

Mastering Inventor 2011 begins with an overview ofInventor design concepts and application before exploring allaspects of part design, including sketching, basic and advancedmodeling techniques, working with sheet metal, and part editing.The book then looks at assemblies and subassemblies, explainingreal-world workflows and offering extensive detail on working withlarge assemblies.

Weldment design is detailed next before the reader is introducedto the functional design using Design Accelerators and DesignCalculators. The detailed documentation chapter then coverseverything from presentation files to simple animations todocumentation for exploded views, sheet metal flat patterns, andmore. The following chapters explore crucial productivity-boostingtools, data exchange, the Frame Generator, and the Inventor Studiovisualization tools. Finally, the book explores InventorProfessional's dynamic simulation and stress analysis features aswell as the routed systems features (piping, tubing, cabling, andharnesses).

Mastering Inventor's detailed discussions are reinforcedwith step-by-step tutorials, and readers can compare their work tothe downloadable before-and-after tutorial files. It also featurescontent to help readers pass the Inventor 2011 Certified Associateand Certified Professional exams and will feature instructorsupport materials appropriate for use in both the training andhigher education channels. Mastering Inventor is theultimate resource for those who want to quickly become proficientwith Autodesk's 3D manufacturing software and prepare for theInventor certification exams.
