Autodesk Inventor for Experienced 3D CAD Users
Duration: 03 day(s)
The Autodesk Inventor for Experienced 3D CAD Users training course is intended to provide accelerated introductory training in the Autodesk Inventor software. This training course is designed for users that have 3D modeling design experience with other 3D CAD software packages (e.g., CATIA, Pro/ENGINEER, Creo Parametric, NX, SolidWorks, etc.).

By leveraging the experience users gain in working with other 3D modeling software packages, this hands-on, practice-intensive curriculum is developed so that new users in the Autodesk Inventor software can benefit from a shorter introductory level student guide. The new user is taught how to find and use the modeling tools associated with familiar modeling strategies that are used in other 3D CAD software. Students acquire the knowledge required to complete the process of creating models from conceptual sketching, through to solid modeling, assembly design, and drawing production.

The main topics covered in this Autodesk Inventor training include:
  • The Autodesk Inventor software interface
  • Obtaining model information
  • Creating sketch and pick and place features
  • Work Features
  • Creating equations and working with parameters
  • Model geometry and model display manipulation
  • Feature duplication techniques
  • Placing and constraining parts in assemblies
  • Assembly component display
  • Presentation files (Exploded views and Animations)
  • Assembly tools
  • Creating parts and features in assemblies
  • Creating and editing assembly Bill of Materials
  • Working with projects
  • Creating and annotating drawings and views

Prerequisites for this Autodesk Inventor training course:

As an accelerated introductory training course, Autodesk Inventor for Experienced 3D CAD Users assumes prior knowledge of 3D modeling and other 3D CAD software. Users with AutoCAD or AutoCAD Mechanical experience are recommended to use the Autodesk Inventor Introduction to Solid Modeling training course.
