Autodesk Inventor 2017 Update for 2015/2016 Users
Duration: 01 day(s)
The Autodesk Inventor training Update for 2015/2016 Users course introduces the new concepts and modeling techniques that have been added to both the Autodesk Inventor 2016 and Autodesk® Inventor® 2017 software releases. The student guide covers enhancements to the most commonly used environments and contains practices for applying the new concepts. It was written to run in the (R2) release of Autodesk Inventor 2017

The major topics covered in this Autodesk Inventor 2017 training include:
  • Interface Enhancements
  • Sketching Enhancements
  • Part Modeling Enhancements
  • Assembly Enhancements
  • Drawing Enhancements
  • Working with Presentations
  • Working with Imported Geometry
  • Generative Shape Design
  • Sheet Metal Enhancements
  • Inventor Studio Enhancements
The training course begins with changes to the overall interface and enhancements that cover settings that pertain to multiple environments. Chapter 2 covers the sketch environment and contains many topics that have been added to ease sketch creation for both 2D and 3D sketches.

A number of enhancements have been added to existing and new part modeling tools, which is covered in Chapter 3. Changes have been made to existing features (such extrude, drafts, iFeatures), boundary patch geometry, and a new ruled surface tool. Additionally, the new tools and enhancements for patterning are discussed.

Chapters 4, 5, and 6 cover changes to the assembly, drawing, and presentation environments. Few changes were made in the assembly environment; however, the new presentation workflow is explained. The enhancements to the drawing environment will improve drawing creation, as well as how many annotations are created or are modified in a drawing.

Chapters 7 and 8 chapters cover new tools for working with imported data and the Generative Shape Design tool.

The appendices outline changes made in the Sheet Metal environment (including multi-body sheet metal modeling) and the Inventor Studio environment.

Prerequisites for this Autodesk Inventor training:

This training course assumes knowledge of the Autodesk Inventor 2015 or 2016 software. Students should know how to create and edit parts, create assemblies, and set up drawing files to create and annotate drawing views.
