Autodesk Inventor, Tube and Pipe Design

This Autodesk Inventor Tube and Pipe Design Training Course will teach delegates how to use the Autodesk Inventor Tube and Pipe environment. The course uses a hands-on, practice-intensive curriculum where delegates acquire the knowledge needed to design routed elements, including tubing, piping, and flexible hose.

"I knew most of the course material so it was more of a refresh for me but it was a good experience and I do feel like I've learnt a thing or two." - Jenna B.
