Porterville, CA, September 25, 2007 - TEDCF Publishing, an Authorized Autodesk Publisher of interactive courses for Autodesk Inventor, today announced the availability of Accelerated Productivity 2008: Sheet Metal Design, the fourth in a series of certified courses for Autodesk Inventor 2008.

The course also includes advanced techniques designed to help users increase productivity. Users learn how to streamline the development of sheet metal parts and increase productivity by applying advanced techniques developed by David Melvin, PE.
David Melvin, PE is an Authorized Autodesk Author and licensed Professional Mechanical Engineer who has published 22 interactive training courses for Autodesk Inventor. With over 21 years working with Autodesk products in Mechanical Design and Industrial Industries, Mr. Melvin began producing interactive courses for Autodesk Inventor in 2000. His most recent accomplishment is to have his Accelerated Productivity 2008: Sheet Metal Design course for Inventor 2008 Certified by Autodesk.
The ease of using this course is exemplified by comments made by Richard Hamlin, President of RDH Design & Detail, LLC. "I am very impressed with this course," said Richard. "It is a lot easier to take this course, than to hunt & peck to refresh my memory in Inventor 2008. Keep up the good work."
Sheet Metal Design has over 7 hours of instruction structurally organized to enhance the learning process. Each lesson builds on skills learned in previous lessons while the course steadily pursues advanced topics
