Introduction to Inventor Solid Modeling




The Inventor Introduction to Solid Modeling training course instructs designers in best use approaches for parametric design philosophy through a hands-on, practice-intensive curriculum. Users acquire the knowledge to complete the process of designing models, from conceptual sketching through to solid modeling, assembly design, and drawing production. This class is one of four Inventor training classes developed to cover topics required in the Autodesk Inventor certification examinations.


To provide you with a thorough understanding of the principal 3D design, validation, and documentation processes necessary for developing products using Autodesk Inventor


Working knowledge of drafting, design, or mechanical engineering principles. Experience with Microsoft Windows. This training is compatible with Windows XP, Windows 8 and Windows 10.
