NASTRAN in Inventor

NASTRAN in Inventor

RE: NASTRAN in Inventor

I had the same question. Does the lack of response mean no one has used it or no one cares any more?

RE: NASTRAN in Inventor

Were considering on getting nastran in the near future as an add on to inventor’s limited FEA capabilities. So can’t help but like to see some response.

RE: NASTRAN in Inventor

My company hasn't carried out the 2018 upgrade, so I haven't had a chance to try it out yet.


RE: NASTRAN in Inventor

I am curious how it compares to the FEA included with Fusion 360 Ultimate (not Fusion 360 standard)

RE: NASTRAN in Inventor

I've changed employer, and not using Inventor any more. Hopefully somebody else will volunteer to talk about their experience.


RE: NASTRAN in Inventor

I've used both the frame simulation and brick simulations. I have not put it through it's full paces yet though.

What are you looking to use it for?
