Autodesk Inventor 2011

Autodesk Inventor 2011

Hi all,

I've been using Autodesk Inventor Professional 2011 for the past months. I am currently designing an engine test bed for our labs. I have been able to find the second moment of area of individual parts of the structure, such as I beams and U channels , etc. Is it possible that the program calculates the total second moment of area of the whole structure?


RE: Autodesk Inventor 2011

Shouldn't you be asking this question on the Inventor forum (Mechanical Desktop has not been sold by Autodesk since Feb 2002).
