Inventor Essentials

Catalyst Connection has partnered with MESA, Inc. to bring you Autodesk training.

Learn the fundamental principles of 3D parametric part design, assembly design, and creating production-ready part and assembly drawings using Autodesk® Inventor®.  Hands-on exercises representing real-world, industry-specific design scenarios are included.

What you will learn:

  • Basic Part Modeling Techniques
  • How to Assemble and Constraining Components
  • 2D Documentation of Designs

Course Objective: The primary objective of this course is to provide students with a thorough understanding of the principal 3D design, validation, and documentation processes necessary for developing products using Autodesk Inventor.

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Capture design intent by using the proper techniques and recommended workflows for creating intelligent 3D parametric parts.
  • Create, place, and constrain custom and standard components in an assembly.
  • Simulate mechanisms, animate assembly designs, and check for interferences.
  • Document designs using base, projected, section, detail, and isometric drawing views.
  • Document assemblies using standard and exploded drawing views.
  • Follow drafting standards while dimensioning and annotating drawing views with automated balloons and parts lists.

Course Outline:

  • Basic Sketching Techniques
  • Basic Shape Design
  • Detailed Shape Design
  • Assembly Design Overview
  • Placing, Creating, and Constraining Components
  • Interacting with an Assembly
  • Basic View Creation
  • Dimensions, Annotations, and Tables
  • Annotating Assembly Drawings
  • Drawing Standards and Resources

Prerequisites: No previous CAD experience is necessary. However, before taking this course, the student should have a working knowledge of the following:

  • Drafting, design, or mechanical engineering principles.
  • Working understanding of Windows.

Duration: 6 Days June 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, & 18
