Autodesk Inventor Training: Intro to Solid Modeling

The Autodesk® Inventor® 2017 (R1): Introduction to Solid Modeling training guide provides you with an understanding of the parametric design philosophy through a hands-on, practice-intensive curriculum. You will learn the key skills and knowledge needed to design models using Autodesk Inventor, starting with conceptual sketching, through to solid modeling, assembly design, and drawing production.

Topics Include

  • Understanding the Autodesk® Inventor® software interface
  • Creating, constraining, and dimensioning 2D sketches
  • Creating and editing the solid base 3D feature from a sketch
  • Creating and editing secondary solid features that are sketched and placed
  • Creating equations and working with parameters
  • Manipulating the display of the model
  • Resolving feature failures
  • Duplicating geometry in the model
  • Placing and constraining/connecting parts in assemblies
  • Manipulating the display of components in an assembly
  • Obtaining model measurements and property information
  • Creating Presentation files (Exploded views)
  • Modifying and analyzing the components in an assembly
  • Simulating motion in an assembly
  • Creating parts and features in assemblies
  • Creating and editing an assembly Bill of Materials
  • Working with projects
  • Creating and annotating drawings and views
  • Customizing the Autodesk Inventor environment

Prerequisites
As an introductory training guide, Autodesk Inventor 2016 Introduction to Solid Modeling does not assume prior knowledge of any 3D modeling or CAD software. Students do need to be experienced with the Windows operating system and a background in drafting of 3D parts is recommended.
