Autodesk Inventor 2016 for Experienced 3D CAD Users

Autodesk Inventor 2016 for Experienced 3D CAD Users Course Description

Duration: 3.00 days (24 hours)

This training course can be used in a introductory training class and is designed for users that have 3D modeling design experience with other 3D CAD software packages (e.g., CATIA, Pro/ENGINEER, Creo Parametric, NX, SolidWorks).

By leveraging the experience users gain in working with other 3D modeling software packages, this hands-on, practice-intensive curriculum is developed so that new users in the Autodesk Inventor software can benefit from a shorter introductory level training course. The new user is taught how to find and use the modeling tools associated with familiar modeling strategies that are used in other 3D CAD software. Users of this training course acquire the knowledge needed to complete the process of creating models from conceptual sketching, through to solid modeling, assembly design, and drawing production.
