# Lessons

The following lessons will help you to get to know our product. In each lesson, a file is generated in individual steps, whereby the results are available as flixo files. You can either perform the procedures yourself, or just read the text, watch the lesson film, and examine the results. The individual steps are illustrated with help of short films.

You need an internet connection to watch the videos.

## Basic Techniques

This lesson illustrates the entry of a simple model with flixo, the definition of materials, the assignment of boundary conditions, and the generation of a report.

After having acquired the basic techniques, this lesson explains the entry of more complex constructions. This example explains how to generate a window model from individual components.

## DXF Import

, ,
In this lesson, another flixo application is explained. This application allows you to use documents, which have been generated with CAD software (e.g. AutoCAD).

## Window Frame Analysis and Wizards

,
In this lesson, the different wizards, which facilitate data entry for the materials table and database are explained. Furthermore, the modeling and analysis of window frames according to European norms is described.

## Psi-Value and U-Value calculation

In this lesson different Psi-values (Psi-value with 2 components, Psi-value with 3 components and edge Psi-value) as well U-values (U  joint value according to EN ISO 12631, equivalent U-value, U-value for constructions with two layers and roller shutterbox U-value) are calculated.

## Document Templates

In this lesson, the creation and arrangement of document templates is illustrated. With document templates you can easily change the appearance and characteristics of documents based on the template. If, for example, your company logo should appear on all report pages, then a template containing this logo can be created.

## Parametric Objects

, ,
In this lesson, you will adjust the lengths of parametric edges, so that the component can exactly be inserted into a new situation. In a second step, the lesson illustrates how you can define edges as a parameter of complex objects.

## Screws according to EN ISO 12631

This lesson illustrates the definition of a periodically existing screw as an equivalent 3-dimensional object. Important and relevant points for the calculation are emphasized.
