Description of Courses

Our Autodesk Inventor 2015 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 2015 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 2015: Solid Modeling course starts your training journey with the basics but quickly builds your skills to an extremely advanced level. Beginners can watch the first few lessons to learn about Inventor and then the real training begins. You will learn from the ground up while you watch each step.

This is where advanced users begin to unlearn bad habits and beginners learn sound practices. After you’ve learned about the Inventor User Interface and some tips on how to customize it you’ll practice creating sketches and using fundamental commands like the Extrude and Revolve commands. Since there’s a lot to know about sketches that most users don’t know you’ll learn founding concepts that will prepare you for advanced topics.

Once you have a strong footing you’ll be ready for advanced commands like the Sweep, Loft, and Shell commands. You’ll mirror features and sketch geometry, practice advanced methods of adding threads, and learn how to control splines. You’ll practice using all the plastic commands like Rib, Grill, and Rest commands. Freeform and other advanced commands like Direct Edit are also covered in detail.

Quite often models imported from other software don’t translate properly. So you have to fix them using surface commands. This course shows you how it’s done. It covers far more that other courses found on the market today, and this is just the first course in the series.

The Autodesk Inventor 2015: Assemblies and Advanced Concepts course explores advanced methods of creating models and assemblies. From duplicating, scaling, and mirroring existing models to creating parts that adapt to assembly changes. This course covers an extremely wide range of skills with detail. You will know all the steps.

After watching the Solid Modeling course you’ll be good at creating models, but this course take it to the next level. Learn top down, bottom up, and middle out design methods, and learn how to mix them to get the results you want. One of the fastest ways to create assemblies is to use Multi-Body Modeling. This course shows you how it’s done.

You’ll use advanced concepts like using equations to drive feature creation from simple to follow processes. As always, the goal is to improve the quality and speed of your work. So this course shows you tips and tricks that help automate feature definitions through simple equations. Using this approach will help with future edits.

Just one of the advanced feature creation methods shown in the course is iFeatures. This powerful tool will allow you to insert features with a click of a button. For example, you can insert female pipe threads of any size just by select from a list that you create. You’ll create the list and the iFeature and you’ll know all the steps.

Even though the course covers advanced concepts you’ll know all the steps and why each step is taken. It explains why each step is taken and you see how it’s done. There is no faster way to learn.

The Autodesk Inventor 2015: 2D Drafting and Customization course shows you how to setup the Inventor User Interface, custom templates, custom borders and title blocks, BOMs, parts lists, tables, styles, symbols and notes, libraries, appearances, and much more. This course is packed with tips and tricks.

The course starts with introducing you to the drawing environment. You’ll practice creating base views, projected views, section views, auxiliary views, detail views, break out views, and much more. You will be able to create and control all view types.

You’ll learn detailed steps to automate title blocks. The information in the title block will automatically fill in all the information when you insert a view into your customized drawing template. BOMs and Parts Lists will display exactly what you want them to because you’ll customize them yourself. You’ll also customize the look of dimensions to minimize the need to edit them. You’ll also explore all the settings that control the look of dimensions.

Did you know you can take a picture of a real surface and use it in your appearances? This gives you the ability to make your parts look like the real thing. This course shows you the detailed steps required to do this. You’ll also learn how to setup custom appearance libraries and material libraries. If you already have custom libraries from older versions you can import them. The 2D Drafting and Customization course shows you how it’s done.

Once you know how to customize drawings and how to use all the drawing commands you’ll learn how to customize the Inventor User Interface. Practice modifying the ribbon, customizing shortcut keys and command aliases, hide and show commands, and so much more. You’ll be able to setup the User Interface they way you want it. This can significantly improve your speed and ease of drafting.

Finally you’ll practice applying all the skills you’ve learned by fully dimensioning custom drawings. You edit AutoCAD DWG file. Import and export them from both AutoCAD and Inventor, and you’ll know your options for doing this. This course is packed with tips and tricks that will help streamline 2D Drawing tasks.

The Autodesk Inventor 2015: Sheet Metal Design course takes the guesswork out of developing sheet metal parts. It shows you how to use all the commands and gives you a detailed description of sheet metal rules and styles. Once you have these concepts under your belt your models will unfold correctly every time.

This course starts with a quick tour of the sheet metal environment and then dives into sheet metal styles and templates. These are the critical settings that assure your sheet metal models function properly. You’ll learn about K-Factors and Bend Tables, and you’ll practice using them. In fact the course comes with a K-Factor calculator that will help you understand these settings. It outputs the Bend Allowance, K-Factor, and setback setting.

The Sheet Metal Design course continues to develop your skills by showing how each command works and how all the settings within the commands affect the model. You’ll practice creating custom punches and cutting across bends. You’ll also use the Frame Generator to create structural members for products housed in sheet metal. This course covers everything.

Sheet metal assemblies are quickly created from scratch using Top Down Design. Multi-Body modeling is used to create assemblies from a single part file, and flat patterns are edited to modify folded models. When you’re finished flat patterns are exported in DXF format for fabrication. Drawings showing the flat pattern and folded model are produced, and customized layer control highlights bend locations.

The Sheet Metal Design course is packed with tips and tricks that will make your sheet metal parts bulletproof.

The Autodesk Inventor 2015: Tube and Pipe Routed Systems shows you how to use the Tube and Pipe module, but other modules like cable & harness work similarly. So if you want to understand how Inventor Routed Systems work, this course is a must see. It covers all aspects of the Tube and Pipe Module.

This course starts by introducing you to routed systems. As mentioned, it’s a concepts used in many Inventor modules. You’ll learn how to setup Tube and Pipe Styles, which are used to populate routes with components like pipes and fittings. Once you’ve practices with factory set styles you create custom styles and publish custom components. Each step of the way you’ll gain control over the whole process.

A critical requirement for Tube and Pipe routes is to keep control of its location within an assembly. A poorly controlled route can change without your knowledge, but you will have full control over your routes. In fact we developed a tool to help with this called the Phantom Route Guide. With this tool and sound procedure your routes will be in your control.

The Tube and Pipe Routed Systems course is packed with tips and tricks to assure your success.

The Autodesk Inventor 2015: Inventor Studio Made Simple course shows you how to show off your work. Inventor Studio allows you to render professional looking images and videos of your assemblies in action. You can animate components as well as cameras and lights. This course shows you how it’s done.

It starts by showing you how to prepare your assemblies for Inventor Studio. You’ll get an introduction to Inventor Studio and then you’ll quickly dive into light settings and background environments. Once you’ve setup or background, also known as IBL Environment, you’ll create your first image. From this point on you’ll practice improving the view while visiting more advanced settings.

Video production is the highlight of Inventor Studio. In this course you’ll practice producing videos showing animated movement of components. You’ll make the camera fly though the assembly and you’ll practice modifying camera and lighting paths.

From Wrapper Assemblies to Turn Tables and the Video Producer, this course covers everything you need to create professionally rendered images and videos.

The Autodesk Inventor 2015: iLogic Made Simple course makes iLogic easier than you might think. You just need to watch the course. It’s a programming course, but you don’t need to be a programmer to leverage the power of iLogic. This course breaks the process down into simple to understand steps. In fact it shows you how to get programming code that has already been written. Once you know how to do this you just need to know how to copy and paste.

The course starts by showing you how parameters work. If you’ve used Inventor you’ve already used parameters. In fact when you add a dimension to a sketch you’ve added a parameter to the model. Custom parameters are covered in detail in earlier courses, but it’s a simple concept that’s used extensively in this course. Once you understand how parameters work you’ll learn how to setup your model for iLogic.

The next step is to create iLogic Rules. You’ll learn the basics and quickly build to an advanced level while using a simple to understand procedure. Each lesson in the course is followed by a video tip that will help you with the previous lesson or prepare you for the next lesson.

You’ll practice saving your code for use in other iLogic rules and you’ll practice using code that was written by Autodesk. Once you understand the simplicity of the code you’ll begin to excel. You’ll learn how to trouble shoot problems when iLogic rules don’t perform the way you expected them to perform. You’ll learn how to build on what you’ve learn, and you’ll learn how to take control over your iLogic rules.

This course is designed to teach you how to excel beyond the scope of the course. It’s a little like teaching someone to read. Once you know how to read you can read anything you want. iLogic works the same way. Once you know how iLogic works you can do anything you want with it. The sky is the limit.

This course is packed with tips and tricks that will help you excel with iLogic.
