Autodesk Inventor—How to quantify in BOM

In our previous posts on the GovDesignHub, we talked about what is Inventor Bill of Materials, showed you how to view BOM and what structure types of BOM are.  Today, we will talk about how to quantify in BOM. Inventor BOM…

Autodesk Inventor—The five BOM structure types

In previous posts on the GovDesignHub, we’ve discussed Bills of Materials (BOM), Parts Lists, and data views in Autodesk Inventor. This week, we’ll take a look at the different BOM structure types, and the purpose each one serves. There are five…

Autodesk Inventor – Structured, Parts Only, and Model Data Views in BOM

In a previous post on the GovDesignHub, we examined the difference between a Bill of Materials (BOM) and a Parts List. This week, we take a look at the different data views that are available to view BOM Data. Autodesk Inventor users…

Autodesk Inventor – Bill of Materials vs Parts Lists

It can often be confusing to understand the Bill of Materials that are in Inventor Assemblies and Parts Lists that are in drawings. The two are related but are not the same thing. The Bill of Materials inside Assembly is considered the master…

How advanced space manufacturing brings the solar system within reach

When we talk about space exploration almost everything is a first. It’s easy to sound hyperbolic – the longest spacewalk, most time in space, first this, first that. But, it’s usually not exaggeration for impact. Almost everything that humankind does…

Innovative Panama Cruise Port wins AEC 2020 finalist recognition

Large infrastructure projects are always difficult to design and complete. There are multiple different stakeholders – from local planning boards and commissions to local businesses to the general public – that want a say in the design, how the space…

Elementum 3D on the advanced materials poised to revolutionize military manufacturing

Often discovery begets more discovery, creativity begets more creativity, and innovation begets more innovation. This is the premise of networking and cooperative business incubators. A great example would be the recent U.S. Air Force Advanced Manufacturing Olympics (AMO), which served…

Making PPE in Minutes is Possible with 3D Printing

In previous articles on GovDesignHub we’ve highlighted the military’s use of 3D printing to make portable runways, repair aircrafts, and maintain vehicles. We have often shared the possibilities that advanced manufacturing presents to our government agencies, however, it’s rare that…

3D printing optimizes the military supply chain

Following decades of continuous operations in multiple foreign countries, repairing key assets for military readiness is a major focus of today’s Department of Defense (DoD). But, when equipment breaks down and parts are difficult to find and expensive to produce,…

How bio-analytics and AI can transform product design and infrastructure

Our military provides countless examples of how bio-analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and a host of other advanced manufacturing technologies produce more advantageous situations for warfighters. We see better runways, cheaper and higher quality repairs, and prolonged life for machines as…
