Autodesk Inventor for Experienced 3D CAD users

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. Users of this student guide acquire the knowledge required to complete the process of creating models from conceptual sketching, through to solid modeling, assembly design, and drawing production.

 

Topics Covered:

  • 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
