Experience our Training and Meet our Trainers

Have you ever looked for professional training courses, but was unsure of the quality of the course or the trainer?

We would like to invite you to experience our courses and meet our trainers on 19th July at our Autodesk Training Centre (ATC), at Bishopsgate in the heart of the City of London.

We have scheduled a number of one-hour taster sessions so you can experience for yourself the courses and meet some of the training team.

Each session is designed as a standalone lesson, and lasts around an hour. We have eleven sessions to choose from, so there should be something to suit everyone.

09:30 – 10:30 – Inventor - Design Automation
10:45 – 11.45 – Navisworks - An Introduction to Collaboration
12:00 - 13:00 – An Introduction to Revit Structure RC Detailing
13:30 - 14:30 – Revit MEP an Introduction to Digital Engineering
14:45 - 15:45 – An Introduction to Dynamo for Revit

Room 2:
09:30 – 10:30 – Autodesk Civil 3D - Surface Creation
10:45 - 11.45 – An Introduction to Revit Architecture
12:00 - 13:00 – Inventor - Sheet Metal Design
13:30 - 14:30 – Texturing a model in 3DS Max
14:45 - 15:45 – Infraworks Overview
​16:00 - 17:00 – An Introducation to AutoCAD

09:30 – 10:30 – Inventor Design Automation

Description: During this session we will look at applying design intent into our geometry so we can extract parameter values into a drawing or import them into another component. Then we can link these values to multiple components, either from part to part or spreadsheet to part. We look into the advantages of having a parametrically driven model including renaming parameters, creating pre-defined parameters and creating expressions by passing parameter values from one to another.

Pre-requisites: Knowledge of the operation and use of Windows + Inventor Essentials.
