Blended Learning: Autodesk Inventor Advanced Part Modeling
Duration: 00 Self-paced
Autodesk Inventor Advanced Part Modeling is the second in a series of training courses on the Autodesk Inventor software that is published by ASCENT. The goal of this course is to build on the skills acquired in the Autodesk Inventor Introduction to Solid Modeling training course by taking students to a higher level of productivity when designing part models in Inventor.

In this training course, the student considers various approaches to part design. Specific advanced part modeling techniques covered include multi-body design, advanced lofts, advanced sweeps, coils, surface modeling, and Freeform modeling. Material aimed at increasing efficiency includes: iFeatures for frequently used design elements, iParts for similar designs, and translation options for importing data. The guide also covers some miscellaneous drawing tools such as custom sketches 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
  • Multi-body part modeling
  • 2D and 3D sketching techniques
  • Advanced geometry creation tools (work features, area lofts, sweeps, and coils)
  • Analysis tools
  • Creating and editing basic surfaces, importing surfaces, and surface repair tools
  • iFeatures and iParts
  • Importing/exporting data and making edits to imported data
  • Freeform modeling
  • Emboss and Decal features
  • Advanced Drawing tools (iPart tables, surfaces in drawing views, and custom sketched symbols)
  • Adding notes with the Engineer’s Notebook

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. Students should know how to create and edit parts, use work features, and create and annotate drawing views, etc.
