Creating you parts and your design has been an easy and fun experience for you, however there are a few more things you may want to do before finalising your design and 3D printing them.
1- How to use simulation in Inventor?
2- How to get the stress distribution of moving parts?
3- How can I analyse my assembly for loading and stresses?
Step 1 - Open assembly and go to the Environments tab on the top ribbon and then select Stress Analysis on the dropdown ribbon.
Step 2 - Select Create Study.
Step 3 – Set all your variables – you can do this by right clicking on the variables in the task bar that you want to edit.
Step 4 - Run the simulation by clicking Simulate.
Step 5 – Export results by clicking Report. - This will lead you to an internet link in which you can share your data and results among other people/clients.
These 5 important steps will bring you closer to having your final design 3D printed.
