Autodesk Inventor Intermediate

Duration: 2 days with an optional 3rd day. We recommend 3 core modules, with an option for 3 additional modules, if required*
Designed for: Designers who have completed the Essentials course.

Prerequisites:

Students should have a basic understanding of Autodesk Inventor parametric part and assembly design. It is recommended that you have a working knowledge of Microsoft supporting systems.

Course Description:

This courseware covers the fundamental principles and recommended workflows for creating complex sketches and curves, creating and analysing complex parts using Autodesk InventorĀ®.

Students learn how to use construction geometry to automate and simplify sketches, and the proper techniques and recommended workflows for creating complex 2D and
3D sketches, and 3D curves. Additionally, students learn the proper techniques and recommended workflows for incorporating complex, free-form shapes into a design to create cast and moulded parts and attractive ergonomic products in Autodesk Inventor.

Lastly, this courseware covers the fundamental principles and recommended workflows for documenting assemblies. Students learn the proper techniques and recommended workflows for documenting assemblies using standard and exploded drawing views, how to customize assembly views, and how to create overlay views that represent multiple mechanism orientations. Students also learn how to annotate assembly drawings with automated balloons and part lists.

Course Objectives:

– To teach students the recommended workflows and basic skills needed to create and use construction geometry, create complex 2D and 3D sketches, and create 3D curves
– To understand the more advanced workflows and techniques for creating complex solid shapes and surfaces in Autodesk InventorĀ®.
– Use the Sculpt tool to quickly create complex shapes from multiple surface features.
– Create complex blended shapes using advanced options on the Loft and Sweep tools
– Create complex fillets, including variable radius, full round, and face-to-face fillets
– Create cast and moulded part designs using the Shell, Rib, Draft, Offset/Thicken, and Split tools
– Use the Zebra and Gaussian surface analysis and cross section analysis tools to analyse a design using Autodesk InventorĀ®.
