Autodesk Inventor, Introduction to Solid Modelling

This Autodesk Inventor: Introduction to Solid Modelling training course instructs delegates the best approach to parametric design philosophy through a hands-on, practice-intensive curriculum. Delegates acquire the knowledge needed to complete the model design process from conceptual sketching, through to solid modelling, assembly design, and drawing production.

"Although I have had experience in other CAD packages over the years, I have lost touch with this product and can see big improvements in the products now available. Hopefully, I can apply my new found knowledge and skill to what I now do in the industry." - Donald R.


As an introductory training course, there is no need for prior knowledge of 3D modelling or CAD software. Delegates do however need to be experienced with the Windows operating system and a background in drafting 3D parts is recommended.
