Test different configurations of mechanical assemblies. View video (1:59 min.)
Perform complex calculations and reduce solve time.
Access virtually unlimited computational speed and power. Continue designing while results are processed, reducing time spent on design iterations.
Efficiently build and run iterations of your design based on specified ranges of values.
Specify sets of alternate dimensional values and multiple iterations that are solved in parallel. Automatically sort versions to show design criteria and get reports on the results.
View each iteration as well as the current progress of each of those versions.
Users can exit Inventor and even the machine itself while processing continues in the cloud. Jobs are still processed and the solver is still running regardless of the status of the local machine.
Activate, review changes, and gauge the impact of the changes on both weight and factor of safety.
View all changes and, by default, view only those configurations that meet the factor of safety design criteria initially specified.
Configure and automatically generate reports in any number of file formats.
By default, only successful designs are included and the optimal design is highlighted. These reports may be distributed and shared with others.
