Autodesk Inventor 2010 Introduction to Solid Modeling introduces the concepts and techniques of 3D modeling with Autodesk Inventor. As an introductory course, it does not assume prior knowledge of any 3D modeling or CAD software. Students do need to be experienced with the Windows operating system. Also, some background with drafting of 3D parts (such as orthographic projections, sections, and exploded views) is recommended.
The structure of the course follows the typical stages of using Inventor to create and edit parts, add them to assemblies, and generate drawings. The major topics covered include:
- The Inventor interface
- Creating 2D sketches with basic sketch and editing tools
- Constraining and dimensioning sketches
- Generating 3D parts from sketches
- Part modeling, adding and editing 3D features
- Placing and constraining parts in assemblies
- Creating drawings and views
None are required.
