TEDCF Publishing Press Release
TEDCF Releases Inventor 2012 Solid Modeling Course

Springville, CA, May 31, 2011 - TEDCF Publishing, a leading Autodesk Authorized Publisher and member of the Autodesk Developer Network, today released the Autodesk Inventor 2012 Certified: Solid Modeling training course.

Solid Modeling gives users a strong foundation of skills to create editable, bullet-proof models. The 2012 release contains 8.5 hours of instruction and 97 lessons focusing solely on Autodesk Inventor 2012. The lessons include many new topics such as:

  • Marking Menu & Dynamic Interfaces
  • More Plastic Design
  • Advanced Sketch Techniques
  • Surface Modeling
  • Fusion
  • And more!

"Our customers have told us what they want and we have delivered," said David Melvin, PE, author of the courses. "We’ve added more plastic design, more surfacing, and a workflow from importing parts to repairing surfaces and using Fusion to edit them. It’s hard to believe, but this course is even more focused on efficient use of Inventor than ever before."

The course is currently available via download. Some of the benefits of TEDCF Publishing downloadable training include:

  • Free, Automatic Updates - no need for a subscription to receive additions to courses already purchased. 
  • Upgrade Options - upgrade to a Bundle in the same release by clicking the Support button on the course lesson player.
  • Consolidated Course Program - one desktop icon shared by all six Inventor 2012 courses.
  • Consolidated Memory Jogger Search Engine - search for lessons in the same release without having to open the corresponding courses.
"We are very excited about our 2012 courses," said Laura Graham, Editor for TEDCF Publishing. "Besides being downloadable, our staff has worked hard to enhance the lesson player."

Some of these enhancements include:

  • Adjustable Screen Size
  • Adjustable Playback Speed
  • Hideable Control Panel
  • Full-screen capability
Another enhancement is the availability of a free Certificate of Completion. The certificate is offered for those who need proof of training to fulfill state or work requirements. A new certificate will be available for all six TEDCF Publishing Inventor 2012 courses totaling over 40 hours of efficient training.
Even though the Solid Modeling course has seen many changes since the 2011 release, it is presented in the same helpful, user-friendly method that TEDCF has used in the past. Here are some of the benefits of this learning method:
  • Lessons in Metric & English.
  • Search Engine - now the Memory Jogger allows you to run a search for any topic no matter which course you are using.
  • Progressive layout - step-by-step training begins with basic concepts and progressively builds to advanced skills.
  • Simplified learning format - users benefit from thorough explanations that cover all the steps.
  • Automatic book-marking - the course automatically opens to the last viewed lesson.
  • Volume Slider - adjustable volume.
  • Time Displays - the length of each lesson along with the current time is displayed.
  • System Requirements: Windows, Speakers, and Windows Media Player 9 or above, 844 MB
