iLogic Made Simple has over 7 hours of instruction. You will learn the fastest way to automate the construction of models, and assemblies.

All you need to do is learn a few simple iLogic concepts and you're on your way. You need to have the strong foundation of advanced skills taught in the first 6 courses, but you can master iLogic even if you don't have programming experience.

This course starts with the basics and progressively builds the skills you need to automatically change features on parts, change parts on assemblies and generate drawings for all the new parts. It goes far beyond any training on the market today, but simplifies the process so that anyone can do it.

Dynamic Simulation Made Simple has over 3 hours of instruction.

Autodesk Inventorís Dynamic Simulation is a powerful tool that will allow you to test and confirm your designs. You might also learn more about the functionality of your products. You apply physical characteristics to the components, watch them work together, and learn more about your product and the quality of the simulation with each iteration. So itís an iterative process that helps you improve your products.

This course uses the same iterative process to show the common workflow of using Dynamic Simulation to improve and test product designs. You may have watched videos on YouTube showing a trebuchet in action using Dynamic Simulation. This course takes the trebuchet concept to another level. It shows all the steps required to successfully produce a simulation of an enhanced trebuchet. It also explains the iterative process of improving the results as well as the design. Each step of the way you will practice the iterative process so that you will learn an effective workflow.
