Inventor Nesting Utility 101

10 a.m. PT - Thursday, July 19th

The Inventor in-canvas workflow is constantly evolving. With the addition of the nesting utility, users obtain a true-shape nesting software that helps you optimize yield from flat raw material.

In this session, Application Engineer Nigel Ambayec, will show you how to: 

  • Generate multiple sheet nests in a single study, allowing for multiple material and packaging options.
  • Compare the efficiency and costs associated with different nesting studies to maximize job profitability.
  • Specify allowable orientations to ensure consistent grain direction on all parts when required for aesthetics or to prevent cracking in subsequent bending operations.
  • Edit individual nests within a multiple sheet study after initial calculation to fine-tune packaging, orientations, item separation, and material use.
  • and more! 

Available with a subscription to the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection, Nesting Utility works right inside Autodesk® Inventor® software, so nesting studies can be created and then updated to reflect any changes to the design. Join us to learn more!

We are excited to announce...

Improve Adoption and Productivity with User Groups

10 a.m. PT - Thursday, July 26th

Internal CAD tribes and user groups are mission-critical to ensuring your company is able to leverage all the software’s capabilities. Participation in user groups help entire teams keep track of and share what they’ve learned, instead of keeping the information isolated to one engineer. This discussion will cover best practices and technology enablers that will help empower you and your co-workers to get the most out of your technology investments.

Autodesk’s Kevin Robinson has taught Inventor to over a thousand engineers and has hosted almost 300 webinars, just like this one. In this session he is excited to teach you the value in participating in or creating a user group.

The Objectives: 

  • Discussion on why user groups are so important
  • Learn how easy it is to get a company user group started
  • Understand the dynamics required to keep it going
  • Explore different technology enablers that can empower your team

Kevin will be talking about how end-users can get comfortable with tools that help them capture and share knowledge with others and more!
