4Digital PrototypingDigital Prototyping enables customers to design, visualize, and simulate their products and processes digitally.Digital Prototyping enables customers to design, visualize, and simulate their products and processes digitally. More product knowledge can be shared downstream, which means, for example, that engineering can simulate the behavior of the product under the operating conditions that it is actually going to experience. Manufacturing doesn’t have to wait until a physical prototype is constructed to start evaluating how to most efficiently manufacture the product, providing more opportunities to innovate and test “what-if” scenarios earlier in the cycle.
5Simulation and Digital Prototyping Simulation is the ++ that perfectly complements the Product Design SuiteThe Autodesk Solution for Digital Prototyping is focused on delivering real value to our customers and moving them beyond 3D to help them solve their real, critical challenges.Digital Prototyping gives conceptual design, engineering, and manufacturing departments the ability to virtually explore a complete product or factory model before it becomes real. With Digital Prototyping manufacturers can create, validate, optimize, and manage designs from the conceptual design phase through the manufacturing process.Using a digital model throughout the design process helps manufacturing teams boost the level of communication with different stakeholders enabling them to more quickly adapt to changing business requirements
6AutoCAD & DWG Interoperability Documentation and Technical Publication ConceptualDesignDetailed EngineeringPlasticsSo I’ve thrown a lot at you but I hope that you agree, that if you step back and look at the totality of our DP portfolio, that it’s capabilities are simply staggering. As you can see here in this illustration, our strategy of leveraging Inventor as the heart of digital prototyping inherently builds future opportunity for you to address. It creates a digital pipeline of adjacent opportunity that seeds long term growth in our accounts and extends our reach into additional areas of our customer’s business.Data ManagementSimulationAutoCAD & DWG InteroperabilityDocumentation and Technical PublicationVisualizationElectro-Mechanical DesignTool DesignRouted SystemsProvided by InventorProvided by Inventor with follow-on ADSK ProductsProvided by adjacent ADSK productsAutomation & ConfigurationMarketingFactory Design
7Attainable Scalable Cost-effective How is Autodesk Different? So why should you choose the Autodesk solution for digital prototyping over other alternatives?Mouse click for slide buildThe Autodesk solution is attainable – meaning that it provides you with the fastest path to Digital Prototyping, whether you’re currently using 2D AutoCAD, or an existing 3D system and are looking to take it to the next level.The Autodesk solution is scalable – it can be implemented at a pace that is right for your business, with minimal disruption to your existing business processes.Finally, the Autodesk solution is cost effective, providing you with the clearest path to a significant return on investment.ScalableCost-effectiveAutodesk, the world-leader in making powerful desktop technology available to mainstream manufacturers.The easiest way for manufacturers to quickly create and share a single digital model that can be used in all stages of development.The easiest and most flexible solution to integrate into existing processes.
8Autodesk Software Enables Customers To… Design – Visualize – SimulateExplore design ideasVisualize projectsAnalyze & test to simulate real-world application and performanceWith our solutions, customers can design, visualize, and simulate their projects digitally, so they can test and improve those ideas long before they are built. They can explore design ideas, from initial concept through development and documentation.This means you can visualize your project with photorealistic renderings and walkthroughs, allowing you to experience your design as if it were already built. You can communicate design intent so people can see exactly what the project will look like.It means you can simulate how it will perform in the real world, test, analyze, and improve the design. You can see how daylight will affect energy consumption, how HVAC systems can take advantage of natural airflow, how products will perform under repeated stress.The benefit? Your design is optimized to perform before it’s ever built.Image note: Created in Autodesk® 3ds Max® software (modeled and rendered)Image created in Autodesk® 3ds Max® software
11Inventor FusionAutodesk Inventor Fusion expands the 3D conceptual design capabilities of Inventor and sets a new standard for 3D modeling ease of use.Unites Direct and Moldflow3D modeling Ease of UseRapid Design Changes without LimitationsAids in Design explorationSupport Points:Unites Direct and Parametric WorkflowsWith the Inventor Fusion Technology Preview, both direct, history-free and parametric, history-based workflows are united. The unique fusion of capabilities enables you to adopt the modeling approach that is most appropriate for the task at hand.Inventor Fusion change manager functionality* delivers:The freedom of direct modeling with the ability to exercise control over changeAutomatic creation, deletion or modification of features necessary to accommodate changesAutomatic update of a parametric model's feature history with each change, ensuring critical design intent is maintained*Available only in Autodesk Inventor and Autodesk Inventor ProfessionalSets new standards for 3D modeling Ease of UseFast, easy selection tools for direct manipulation of your design modelsHeads-up sketching and modeling predict your actions based on design contextIntuitive, graphics-based user interface keeps your focus on the screen centerAdvanced graphics technology for crystal clear visualization and stunning displaysRapid Design Changes without LimitationsDirect modeling when it's the right tool for the jobQuickly make unique design changes and explore "what if" scenariosEasily express your design ideas irrespective of feature order, dependencies, or original CAD systemAids in Design Exploration with Free from editing
12Direct Connection to Autodesk Simulation Interoperability – Data TranslationImprove collaboration with suppliers and customers who use different CAD formatsCATIA TranslatorsAutodesk Inventor LT 2011 software simplifies interdisciplinary collaboration across many industries and products. In addition to CATIA V5 files, you can now open, import, place, or drag and drop CATIA V4 models into Inventor files. Associativity is not maintained, but the imported model behaves as if it were created with Inventor. Select from various import options to achieve the appropriate model characteristics.With the ability to read CATIA V4 and CRG formats, Inventor users will now be able to leverage even more models that were created with CATIA. Additionally, enhancements made to the existing built-in translators offer improved importing and exporting of the many file formats already available.Direct Connection to Autodesk Simulation
