IMAGINiT Technologies , a subsidiary of RAND Worldwide, provide technology solutions to organisations with engineering design and information technology requirements. Technology solutions, offered by IMAGINiT Technologies, include two Autodesk 2009 software training guides such as Revit Structure 2009 Fundamentals and Inventor 2009 Sheet Metal Design. These software training guides include ASCENT series of course materials. ASCENT is an authorized author, publisher and developer of the Autodesk curriculum.
ASCENT’s new training guide, Revit Structure 2009 Fundamentals, provides another extension to the existing Revit curriculum. The course teaches the concepts and principles from building design to construction documentation. Specifically, the curriculum delivers the tools that users require in order to effectively create, document, and print a variety of Revit Structure 2009 parametric models. Students are exposed to the interface with the available design tools that enable the students to create a new structural project including architectural overlay creation, beginning a structural model, and adding and reinforcing foundations. Framing systems such as beams, brace frames, and flooring; and elevator shafts, stairs and ramps are also covered along with the annotation object styles for creating them.
The updated Inventor 2009 Sheet Metal Design training guide introduces the users to the concepts and techniques of sheet metal modelling in Autodesk Inventor 2009. The course focuses on features specific to the process of sheet metal part creation and editing, flat pattern generation, and design drawing documentation. Specific topics in the training guide include design processes, sheet metal styles, rules and parameters, and creating commonly used sheet metal features such as flanges, hems, folds, and bends.
