Autodesk Inventor: Advanced Part Modeling

Autodesk 2023 Course Version Now AvailableThe Autodesk Inventor: Advanced Part Modeling training course has been designed to build on the basic skills acquired from the Autodesk Inventor: Introduction to Solid Modeling course. The goal of this course is to help users achieve a higher level of productivity when designing part models using Inventor.

In this course, various approaches to part design are covered to expand your basic skills. Specific advanced part modeling techniques covered include bending and unwrapping model geometry, multi-body design, advanced lofts, advanced sweeps, coils, generative shape design, surface modeling, and freeform modeling. The course explains how to work efficiently with imported data as well as contains other material aimed at increasing efficiency such as Features for frequently used design elements, and model states and iParts for similar designs. Additionally, the guide covers some miscellaneous drawing tools—custom sketched symbols, working with title blocks and borders, and documenting iParts.

The major topics covered in this Autodesk Inventor training course are:
  • Advanced model appearance options
  • 2D and 3D sketching techniques
  • Multi-body part modeling
  • Advanced geometry creation tools (bend part, unwrap, work features, area lofts, sweeps, and coils)
  • Generative shape design using Shape Generator
  • Creating and editing basic surfaces
  • Model states
  • iFeatures and iParts
  • Importing data from other CAD systems and making edits
  • Working with AutoCAD DWG files
  • Analysis tools
  • Emboss and Decal features
  • Advanced Drawing tools (iPart tables, surfaces in drawing views, and custom sketched symbols)
  • Surface Repair Environment

Prerequisites for this Autodesk Inventor training course:

The material assumes a mastery of Autodesk Inventor basics, as taught in Autodesk Inventor Introduction to Solid Modeling. Users should know how to create and edit parts, use work features, create and annotate drawing views, etc. The use of Microsoft Excel is required for this course.
