Make bulletproof models and know what makes them structurally sound!

The Inventor 2016: Solid Modeling course shows you the basics and progressively builds to an extremely advanced level. So both beginners and advanced users should start with this course. Beginners will learn best practices while advanced users will unlearn bad habits. This course is packed with tips and tricks designed to help you become a professional modeler.

It starts with the basics like how to open and create files and how to create a project and then you'll get an overview of the Inventor User Interface. You'll also get an introduction to quickly executed commands like the Marking Menu, Context Menu, and the In-Canvas Display. Once you're familiar with the Inventor User Interface you'll begin making models.

You'll practice using all the modeling commands as well as some surface commands. As you become more familiar with the commands you'll begin learning strategies for creating solid models. As you'll see, the order features are constructed is important and can mean the difference between scrapping your model or continuing with a professionally structured procedure. When you're finished with this course you will know what to do to assure your models won't need to be scrapped just to start over from scratch.

The Solid Modeling course for Autodesk Inventor 2016 covers everything you need to successfully create structurally sound models.
