Autodesk Simulation Mechanical: The Complete Guide

Sign up for Global eTraining’s “Get Everything” library and get access to all their courses including Autodesk Simulation Mechanical.

Autodesk Simulation Mechanical Complete Guide is designed to give you a solid understanding of Autodesk Simulation features and capabilities.  Every course is designed to use all learning styles from text, audio, video, interactivity, quizzes and practical “Let Me Try” examples.

You’ll follow a workflow-based approach that mirrors the development of projects in the real world, learning the steps to start a Simulation project, exporting and importing Geometry, working with equipment in the drawing, using Meshing techniques, creating and editing Joints and Contacts, and analyzing the model and producing results.

To get the most out of this course, we strongly recommend you review every topic within the course, and use all the learning styles to ensure you retain the important information within. We also encourage you to take all the progress tests to ensure you have retained the knowledge, and most importantly practice with the hundreds of real world, Let Me Try examples.
