Autodesk Inventor 2018 for Experienced 3D CAD Users (1st Edition)
Total number of pages: 938
Total Hours: 24
The Autodesk® Inventor® 2018 for Experienced 3D CAD Users student guide is intended to provide accelerated introductory training in the Autodesk® Inventor® software. This student guide can be used in a 3-day 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, etc.).
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 student guide. 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 student guide acquire the knowledge required to complete the process of creating models from conceptual sketching, through to solid modeling, assembly design, and drawing production.
