This course is the starting point for all new Inventor users. The course instructs users in best usage 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.Who Should Attend
New users of Autodesk Inventor 2014Prerequisites
As an introductory course, this course 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.Class Outline
