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 2016.



Working knowledge of drafting, design, or mechanical engineering principles. Experience with Microsoft Windows.

I also learned Revit Architecture through Rick Feineis. He tailored the course to my current knowledge of AutoCAD and 3DSmax. The course covered everything from drafting in Revit, creating a complete 3D project which pulling views for elevations, sections, plans, details and 3D views was extremely simple.Ricks style of training via a remote desktop session allowed me to easily do the course from my hotel room and easily pick up the skills and information I…read more

As a real estate developer with limited working knowledge of AutoCAD, I was interested in having more input in the design stage of the projects. I had heard about Revit and all it could do, and was a little intimidated knowing the learning curve I would face with AutoCAD alone. As it turned out, taking the online training course in Revit was a great surprise. The program is extremely intuitive, and backed up with the…read more

CAD Training Online was very helpful. The curriculum training was above par compared to other training I have done in the past and the instructor tailored the class to my needs and steered me in the right direction for going forward. I will also compliment them for there prompt response to my request for training just a week prior to my training. I was on a tight schedule and they made it happen.
