Autodesk Inventor, Cable and Harness Design

This course will provide delegates with the knowledge needed to design physical cables and harnesses for electrical systems in almost any kind of product or machine. With specific tools to incorporate cable and harness into digital prototypes, the Autodesk Inventor Cable and Harness Design software enables users to calculate accurate path lengths, avoid small-radius bends, and help ensure that electrical components fit into the mechanical assembly before manufacturing.

"Great experience and enjoyed the teaching. I've learnt a lot during this course." - Nyle W.
