How to make a simulation in Autodesk Inventor

One of our kids taught himself how to model the design for the robot in Autodesk Inventor. He hasn’t been able to figure out how to make simulations from his 3D model. Can anyone point us to a tutorial or instructions? Is it even possible to create simulations using this software?

Do you mean simulation as in a rendered image? Or some sort of physics simulation-bending, center of gravity, forces?

I was under the impression that with Autodesk, once you have made a 3D image, there is a way to simulate how the robot would actually work, so yes I mean bending, center of gravity, forces. Maybe that isn’t possible, but I thought I would ask.
