Autodesk Nastran In-CAD Training Course

On May 9th & 10th, 2019, Applied Engineering is holding a Nastran In-CAD Essentials training course.

Nastran In-CAD is a finite element analysis (FEA) tool that is embedded directly in the Autodesk® Inventor® software as an Add-In. It is powered by the Autodesk Nastran solver and offers simulation capabilities specifically tailored for designers and analysts as a tool for predicting the physical behavior of parts or assemblies under various boundary conditions.

Through a hands-on, practice-intensive curriculum, students acquire the knowledge required to work in the Autodesk Nastran In-CAD environment to set up and conduct FEA analyzes on part and assembly models.
