Well now that I have your attention….I was at one of my customers this week and they are heavy into making molds. Not for Blue Cheese either, the kind for making injection molded parts.

They get files from all sorts of CAD software and want to simplify how they make mold parts for the cavities.

Here is a simple way to start doing this in Inventor today. We started with a derived component, and the sculpt command.

FEA Your Weldment as an assembly

Most of us would agree that FEA on parts is important. So how do we get that done on a welded bracket that we are fabricating? Well since Inventor only has ANSYS part level FEA, I came up with a pretty accurate way to test my brackets that have multiple parts welded together. I use the original welded assembly and turn it into a derived assembly/component. This allows me to make it into a single part, and now I can run it through the stress analysis engine for a solution.

Checkout this short video file for a step by step run through.

Give it a try on your next welded bracket!
