The company were I am currently working has bought the Autodesk Inventor "Autodesk Product Design Suite 2012" and it does not come with some other features like Frame Analysis, etc...
Is there any Plugin that we can acquire in order to have this funtionality "Frame Analysis". I was searching from the web and came across with this video created by Rob Cohee and these is the funtionality that we want to get as a plugin.
Integrated Finite Element Analysis Increase the accuracy and reliability of your design stress analysis with Autodesk Inventor Professional. Use integrated finite element analysis (FEA) to predict stress and deflection with accurate peak loads by transferring reaction forces from simulation time steps to AIP stress analysis.
Fully integrated with Frame Generator, the Frame Analysis environment in Autodesk Inventor Professional can enable you to simulate the performance of load-bearing frame models quickly and efficiently. You can sketch out your framed structure, create the detailed design with frame members from our extensive library, and then quickly simulate the response of the frames to gravity and other loads in an easy-to-use environment that automatically brings over the material properties and member cross sections from Frame Generator. After running the analysis, you can take advantage of the report generation tools to present your results and embed graphics and animation in your reports.
Finite element analysis features include:
FEA environment definition
Adaptive solver technology
