Description of Courses

Our Autodesk Inventor 2014 training courses are an accumulation of years of hard work. We’ve been making Autodesk Inventor courses since version 4 in 2003. So we know what it takes to show you the best way to use the software.

We owe our success to our customers. Customer Reviews have told us what we’re doing wrong, and what we’re doing right, and we have responded. Each year our courses have improved.

This year’s training for Autodesk Inventor 2014 is no exception. It’s better than last years training, and in part we owe this to our customers. So from our training family here at TEDCF Publishing,  Thank You.

Now let’s talk about our courses.

The Autodesk Inventor 2014: Solid Modeling course is the first course in the series designed to assure your models and assemblies are structurally sound and modifiable. This course focuses on practical methods of creating models. You’ll use all the commands in the part environment while you learn best practice. Each lesson progressively builds your skills. So it doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or advanced user. You will learn best practices from this course.

If you’re an advanced user you can skip the first few lessons because it introduces you to the Inventor User Interface. You’ll practice creating a sketch, and you’ll learn where to find the commands. Once this is done you will begin building a strong foundation of skills that assure your models are functionally sound. If you’ve worked with Inventor you know this is important. Poorly constructed models may need to be scrapped and reconstructed.

During your training journey you will practice using all the feature commands. You’ll learn how to use parameters, how and when to share sketches, various construction strategies, and much more. This course covers everything you need to create professionally sound models. Look through the list of lessons to learn more.

Autodesk Inventor 2014: Assemblies and Advanced Concepts is the second course in the series. It shows you advanced ways of creating models as well as tips and tricks that assure your models are structurally sound. Some of these tricks significantly reduce construction time. You’ll also learn standard and advanced methods of creating assemblies. This course will show you how to make your models and assemblies bulletproof.

You’ll practice deriving parts from other parts, creating scaled and mirrored parts, as well as parts that adapt to changes in other parts. If you have a series of common parts you can create an iPart generator to generate all the parts in the series. This course shows you how it’s done.

The Design Accelerator is covered in detail. You’ll create bolted connection, gears, shafts and springs, but you’ll also learn a unique method of creating springs developed here at TEDCF Publishing. Most people believe you can’t make a closed and ground helical spring that actually compresses in an Inventor assembly. This course shows you how it’s done.

You’ll learn how to create assemblies from 2D layouts. You use Bottom Up Design to create assemblies. Top Down Design, which is the preferred method, is also covered in detail. You’ll also learn how to merge the design methods to get the results you want.

iFeatures, iParts, the Contact Solver, Presentations, Kinematics, … There’s too much in the course to list here. Read through the list of lessons. It’s packed with tips and tricks that will make you an extremely advanced user.

The Autodesk Inventor 2014: 2D Drafting and Customization course helps you quickly and accurately develop mechanical drawings for your models. It shows you how to customize drawing templates that automatically fill in title blocks. You control the color and line weight of your drawings. Customize the look of BOMs, Part Lists, and tables, and so much more. This course is packed with tips and tricks that will help you produce professional looking drawings.

From custom borders to automated title blocks, you will learn how to streamline your work. The instant you insert your first view into a drawing the title block will be filled. Insert a Parts List and it will be formatted to your custom settings and design. Export the BOM and there will be no need to edit it. It will look just the way you designed it every time.

This course shows you how to create all the views Inventor can create, which is all the views you’ll ever need on a drawing. You’ll learn tips and tricks that will give you more control over your views that most uses and you’ll feel confident about your work.

The 2D Drafting and Customization course shows you everything you need to make professional looking drawings in the shortest time possible.

Autodesk Inventor 2014: Sheet Metal Design expands your modeling skills for both sheet metal and standard parts. You’ll learn how to use all the sheet metal commands, how to assure your models unfold, and how to create custom punches. You’ll also use the Frame Generator to create structures housed in sheet metal. It covers everything you’ll need to create professional sheet metal parts.

One of the critical aspects that will help you succeed is your ability to create realistic sheet metal styles. Styles control all sheet metal operations. So you need to get this right. Fortunately this course shows you the details of how styles work and how to set them up.

All the sheet metal commands are covered with real world considerations. For example corner reliefs, and seams can require customization for your operation. This course shows you how to customize every setting. You’ll know that the folded models your create will produce unfolded flat patterns that match your operation. It just takes the knowledge you’ll gain from this course and the knowledge you have about your operation. It also comes with a K-Factor calculator to help you quickly adjust your models and styles to match your operation with the least number of iterations.

The Sheet Metal Design course is packed with tips and tricks that will help you create professional sheet metal parts.

The Autodesk Inventor 2014: Tube and Pipe Routed Systems course removes the mystery from the Tube and Pipe model. It shows you how to successfully control routes and BOMs. You’ll create and publish custom components, pipes, tubes, and hoses. You’ll create custom Tube and Pipe libraries and styles, and you’ll use your custom components to create routes. This course is packed with everything you need.

The course is packed with tips and tricks designed to help you succeed, and it also has a tool found nowhere else. The Phantom Route Guide was developed here at TEDCF Publishing. It’s used to give you even more control over routes. You’ll learn fundamental concepts that help you gain control over route placement, but the Phantom Route Guide can be used when there is no other solution. So it’s a great tool to have.

Editing routes can be difficult if they’re not setup correctly, but you will know best practices that assure your routes can easily be edited. One of the beauties of Auto-routes is they automatically create routes for your tube/pipe/hose system. The problem with Auto-routes is they automatically create routes for your tube/pipe/hose system. Yes, their asset is their greatest problem, but it won’t be your problem. Auto-routes can be controlled through sound practice, which is taught in this course.

The course also shows you how to work with Derived Routes and sketches. So it’s not limited to Auto-routes. You’ll work with pipe routes, tube routes, flexible hose routes, and self draining routes. You’ll publish custom components like pumps, fittings, reducers, etc. You’ll learn how iParts play a role in the Tube and Pipe module, and much more.

This course is packed with tips and tricks to help you master the Tube and Pipe module.

The Autodesk Inventor 2014: Inventor Studio Made Simple course is helpful if you need to show others your work. For example, you can create videos of your assemblies being assembled and disassembles. You can create professionally rendered images for marketing purposes. You can also demonstrate the functionality of assemblies. The sky is the limit. This course shows you step by step how it’s done.

Once you’ve been introduced to the Inventor Studio environment you’ll learn how to setup custom scenes. This entails setting up lighting and cameras. Cameras and lights can move during animations. So this is a fundamental step. The next step is to develop a timeline.

Timelines consist of actions, which are sections of the timeline that perform various tasks like moving components, lights, and cameras. The timeline is where you setup everything that occurs in a video movie. So everything can move in a video. Cameras can fly through your assembly. Assemblies can rotate on a turntable, and lights can move. The visibility of components can also change. For example an housing can fade out to show the components inside. This course shows you everything you need to know to take control of the entire process.

The Inventor Studio Made Simple course is packed with everything you need to create professionally rendered images and videos.

The Autodesk Inventor 2014: iLogic Made Simple course does just what the title implies. It simplifies iLogic and gives you the ability to unlock the power of this amazing tool. You don’t need to be a programmer to use it. Follow the simple steps in the course and you’ll be able to create assemblies, components, and drawings with a single click of a button.

So what is iLogic? Simply speaking, iLogic allows you to setup a series of commands and execute them. So it’s a little like a macros, but more powerful. You can setup a series of commands to draw sketches, create features, create a whole part file, or even an assembly with components. You just need to know all the steps you would manually take to do these tasks. You also need to know how to manually use Inventor commands and how they work. So any task you perform in Autodesk Inventor can be performed using iLogic.

Why don’t you need to be a programmer? Even though iLogic uses a simple programming language you don’t need to know how to program. If you know how to use Inventor and you can copy and paste you’re well on your way. This course shows you how to leverage programming code that comes with Inventor. You’ll learn how the code works by practicing with it, and learn how to store it so that you can use it later. As you proceed through the course you’ll develop an arsenal of code you can use to write your own iLogic. When you try it you’ll find it’s easier than it sounds.

How extensive is this training? It starts with the basics and progressively builds to an extremely advanced level. At this point you will be able to independently create your own iLogic. By the end of the course you will have created iLogic that creates assemblies and its components, keeps inventory of all the components, reuses existing components in new assemblies, creates all the component and assembly drawings, and organizes all the component and assembly files in folders. This will be done with a single click of a button. No other iLogic training course comes close to covering this much.

Even though it covers a lot of concepts the true focus of the course is to teach you to teach yourself. The things you can do with iLogic are unlimited, and even though you will have used it to do what the course shows you, it’s more important that you learn how to use iLogic in your own projects. So you will learn how to extend your knowledge beyond the scope of course.

Pass the Autodesk Inventor Professional Exam

After practicing the tasks in the Ultimate Bundle you will have no problem passing the Autodesk Inventor Professional Exam.

How is this possible? We don’t teach you how to pass the exam. We teach you the details of how to use Inventor. You will not only know how to use the commands, you’ll know how they work and how to use them in a professional environment. So taking and passing the test will be easy.

The true test is how you perform at work. This is the focal point of our training.
