This video demonstrates the creation and modification of primitives. I’ll use several primitives to create a simple desk lamp and then apply modifiers to the primitives to better model the necessary shapes. Along the way, I’ll also demonstrate a few tricks to make modeling easier. Prepared and narrated by Chad Miller.

Autodesk Moldflow 2011 and Showcase Working Together

    Autodesk Moldflow analysis results can help you determine how well your part design will fill, identify where defects might occur, and assess potential warpage. However, it may be difficult to decide whether the results are actually significant when attempting to interpret them graphically. Using Autodesk Showcase, you can visualize how the part might actually look in real life and determine whether the defects are really visible to the eye, enabling you to assess part quality and decide whether the design should be optimized.

    Once you have analysis results, the Export for Defect Visualization feature becomes active. You can access this tool from the Results menu or from the Tools tab in the Study Tasks pane using the classic user interface style, or from the Results tab using the new user interface style. You can choose to export the part surface only, or you can include sink marks and/or warpage results, with or without a scale factor.

This feature is available for Dual Domain and 3D models.
