10 © 2011 Autodesk Autodesk Inventor Fusion

11 © 2011 Autodesk Inventor Fusion Autodesk Inventor Fusion expands the 3D conceptual design capabilities of Inventor and sets a new standard for 3D modeling ease of use. Unites Direct and Moldflow 3D modeling Ease of Use Rapid Design Changes without Limitations Aids in Design exploration

12 © 2011 Autodesk 12 Improve collaboration with suppliers and customers who use different CAD formats Interoperability – Data Translation Direct Connection to Autodesk Simulation

13 © 2011 Autodesk Using Autodesk Inventor Fusion Personal Note: How do I show something so powerful in a presentation?

14 © 2011 Autodesk Translate CAD Files without a need for Translators Alias *.wire DWG Files JT Files Rhino *.3dm Alias *.wire DWG Files JT Files Rhino *.3dm

15 © 2011 Autodesk Concept Modeling and Test Part Creation Concepts come in different forms of data CAD Files Industrial Design Sketches In some cases data needs to be created for use in Moldflow

16 © 2011 Autodesk Assemblies Assemblies Needed for Moldflow Part Insert Mold Inserts Core Deflection Over-Molding Etc…

17 © 2011 Autodesk Feature Modification and Simplification Typical Recommended Part Modifications Remove Tooling Features or non- critical features Rounds Fillets In-Mold Text/Lettering Etc… Edge Length – 3mm Chord Height – 30° Elements – 193,192 Max. Aspect Ration – 48.2 Mesh Match – 78.1% Time to Mesh – s Edge Length – 3mm Chord Height – 30° Elements – 34,194 Max. Aspect Ration – 18.8 Mesh Match – 91.4% Time to Mesh – 82.75s

18 © 2011 Autodesk Moldflow – Inventor Fusion Interoperability Part Modifications may be required for improved moldability Typical Changes Flow Leader Flow Restrictor Wall Thickness Change Feature Removal Feature Additions

19 © 2011 Autodesk Advanced Gate Creation Quickly Make Gates that arent easily modeled in Moldflow Diaphragm Gates Fan Gates Contour Gates Edge Gates

20 © 2011 Autodesk 3D Runner System Creation Sometimes we need 3D Runner Systems Not easily modeled in Moldflow Sprue Gates Complex cross-section Shear-Induced Flow Imbalance Complex Runner System Configuration

21 © 2011 Autodesk Additional Capabilities Allows for solid model modification from Autodesk Inventor Full roundtrip functionality with Autodesk Inventor Allows for easy modification of non-native CAD files used in Inventor Export to Autodesk Simulation Mechanical Full automated export to Autodesk Simulation Mechanical Offers full functionality offered to Autodesk Moldflow Products Contains a full set of Surface Tools as well as Solid Based tools Thicken Industrial Design Surface data Patch or repair problem surface files Manual Tools Automated Stitch Tool

22 © 2011 Autodesk Summary Autodesk has provided the tools to complete the Digital Prototyping solution for the Autodesk Simulation products Autodesk Inventor Fusion provides CAD functionality without the restrictions traditional CAD environments Autodesk Inventor Fusion is the additional functionality required to optimize designs and make needed part modification at the analysts command Designed with the end user in mind, with easy to use commands and a familiar interface AND YOU ALREADY HAVE IT!!!
