A video about: Inventor 2017 Shape Generator,
At the Cadline launch events for the 2017 products, the Inventor Shape Generator was shown as part of the "What's new in Product Design Suite" masterclass.
The Shape Generator Video below goes over the steps necessary to create a shape generator simulation.
Shape generator was introduced in Inventor 2016 R2 and has been updated with new tools like "preserve region" which allows users to specify regions of the model that will not have material removed during the shape generator optimisation.
