Weight takeoffs and RISA 3D actions in Inventor

240 Views, 3 Replies

Can anyone guide me through weight takeoffs and RISA 3D type actions in Inventor? My company is currently using AutoCAD to make drawings, Inventor to make models, an in-house analysis program (for weights, moments, loads, modulus of elasticity, and yield strength) as well as RISA 3D for final design. I need to streamline this process, and I know Inventor can do it all--I just don't know exactly the best way to do it. Anyone...?

Why Autocad to do drawings? seems silly and would be my first place to look for "streamlining"

Inventor does drawings..

 

What version of Inventor do you have? (specifically do you have the "Professional" version which includes stress analysis/dynamic simulation?

 

Best thing IMO is to take a small part/project and run it through your RISA and Inventor simulation at the same time and see what works and doesn't work for your company. There are TONS of tutorials on Inventor simulation to get you started.. I'd suspect if you know 1 analysis program another shouldn't be too hard to figure out quickly.

Yes, the use of AutoCAD and RISA are both non-efficent to my design ends. I am running Inventor Suite 2011.

So you don't even have stress analysis... Well simply switching to drawings in Inventor could help some to "streamline" but thats about it..
