Crunch Time Previews! - Linking between Autodesk Inventor and Autodesk Showcase

“My body felt extremely tired, ... I've got five or six gears in me, but I was crunching to get into second without a clutch. It was a tough day.”
Grant Hackett

Today is a much shorter post that usual, since most of my waking hours has been spent on creating my materials for KETIV's Autodesk Manufacturing Academy in Oregon on October 10th. 

So in this post, I'm afraid I don't have much that I can get into regarding new adventures or experiences, since..... well.  Look at that above statement on AMA!

But to that end, I've got a fantastic dataset graciously provided by Datum3 Studios.  You can check it out as the "Flight Controller Bases" section in the gallery HERE!  This data will be playing a big part in my "Digital User Manuals & Documentation" session.

The Throttle rendered in Autodesk Showcase
As part of the event, I've been busy creating supplemental videos that go along with the sessions, so this is what I'm sharing today.

In this video for AMA, I briefly show how Autodesk Inventor and Autodesk Showcase can link their data together, creating a loop of "collaborative development" where the rendering in Showcase can develop along side the engineering design developing in Inventor.

By utilizing this process, the aesthetics of a product can be developed and approved by the customer, all the while the engineering is going on in the background.  Both can develop simultaneously, instead of linearly as in the "traditional way".

Here's the video!  I hope you all enjoy this AMA preview!
