Year after year I still bump into a few Autodesk Mechanical Desktop Users floating around. So I wanted to create a list of features that I thought really makes the jump well worth considering if your still using MDT. Feel free to add some of your own by posting a few comments.
Assembly Modeling – Part 1:
1. Drive Constraints – This command allows you to take your assembly constraints and show them in motion to better understand how your concept will function.
2. Contact Solver – This tool allows you to have your parts physically stop or move as they bump other components.
3. Flexible Status – The ability to have a sub assembly placed multiple times but function as it does in real life independently of the others.
Also down in the file sharing zone below on this blog I have uploaded a white paper on how to move some of your MDT data sets forward into inventor. Link to PDF.
