Inventor Introduction to Solid Modelling - PLUS

Introduction to Solid Modeling 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.


This course covers the core topics for working with Autodesk Inventor.The teaching strategy is to start with the core tools that enable the Student to create and edit a simple model and then continue to develop those tools. Not every command or option is covered, because the intent is to learn the fundamental modelling tools and concepts. Students then have access to self-paced E-Learning which guides them through some of the more advanced modelling commands and options.

Delivery Mode
In a new approach to learning Autodesk Inventor, we have put together a combination of Instructor-led and Guided E-learning to maximize your learning experience and reduce the amount of time out-of-office.
Phase 1 - 3 days Instructor-led Group Training (09:00 - 16:30)
Phase 2 - 12 months access to self-paced E-learning: Inventor – The Complete Guide (Refer to terms and conditions on login)

Course Objectives
On completion of this course students will have been given the opportunity to acquire knowledge and understanding
of commands and concepts and develop the skills necessary to demonstrate competency in:
     • Navigating the Inventor user interface
     • Creating 2D sketches
     • Constraining and dimensioning sketches
     • Generating 3D parts from sketches
     • Part modelling, adding, and editing 3D features
     • Modelling geometry and model display manipulation
     • Resolving feature failures
     • Feature duplication techniques
     • Establishing and working with model relationships
     • Placing and constraining parts in assemblies
     • Assembly component display
     • Model Information
     • Presentation files (Exploded views)
     • Assembly tools
     • Creating parts and features in assemblies
     • Working with projects
     • Creating and annotating drawings and views
     • Assembly bill of materials

Instructor-led Training topics will be drawn from the following.  Not all topics will be covered during training but are contained in the Glodal E-training Modules. Topics: Introduction to Inventor...Creating the base feature...Sketching Geometry...Sketched Secondary Features...Creating Pick and Place Features...Work Features...Equations...Additional Features...Model and Display Manipulation...Fixing Problems...Sweep Features...Loft Features...Duplication Tools...Feature Relationships...Assembly Environment...Manipulating Assemblies...Model Information...Design Presentation...Assembly Tools...Assembly Parts and Features...Assembly Bill of Materials...Working with Projects...Drawing Basics...Detailing Drawings...Drawing Annotations...Customising Autodesk Inventor.

Guided E-Learning
Inventor: The Complete Guide is designed to give you a solid understanding of Inventor features and capabilities from the basics through to advanced components. Every course is designed to use all learning styles from text, audio, video, interactivity, quizzes and practical “Let Me Try” examples.
Inventor: The Complete Guide has been carefully structured not only to give you the knowledge and skills you need to be a successful Inventor user, but also to prepare you for the Autodesk Certification exams. The certification icon in the “Let Me Try” tasks will alert you to areas that are especially relevant to Autodesk Inventor Professional Certification. Topics: Connecting to the Interface...Introducing Parametric Sketching...Introducing Part Modelling...Creating 2D Drawings from 3D Data...Introducing Assembly Modelling...Advanced Part Modelling...Creating Advanced Drawings and Annotations...Advanced Assembly and Engineering Tools...Creating Sculpted and Multibody Parts...Working with Sheet Metal Parts...Building with the Frame Generator...Working in a Weldment Environment...Customizing Styles and Templates...Working with Non-Inventor Data...Automating the Design Process and Table-Driven Design...Creating Images and Animation your Design Data


Who should attend and Course Prerequisites

This course is designed for new users of Autodesk Inventor.
No previous CAD experience is required, but students are expected to have:
