Autodesk Inventor® 2014
Solid Modeling

Master Inventor!

Make bulletproof models and know what makes them structurally sound!

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.
