"This is the best Tutorial I have ever used. It took me 10 years to learn AutoCAD the hard way and in only one week I am already feeling comfortable in getting around Inventor. Highly recommended for learning Inventor the correct way."

“Best tutorial I have every used.” This may sound made up, but many of our customers say about the same thing. We work hard to make them the best in the CAD market, but all tutorials? It might be a stretch, but one thing is clear. Brian really liked the training. At the end of each course we ask our customers to write a review. It’s completely voluntary. Here is what they wrote.

Description of Courses

Our Autodesk Inventor 2017-18 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 2017-18 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.

This course covers advanced concepts like using equations to drive feature creation, but it also covers simple to follow processes you can use to improve the quality and speed of your work.

Create a few iFeautres and you can drill and tap full feature threads with a click of a button. Setup an iPart factory and you can create custom parts in seconds. These are just a few of the things you’ll learn to do, and it’s easy.

We make it easy by showing you all the steps. We explain why each step is taken, and how to get the most from your work in the fastest time possible.

Autodesk Inventor 2017-18: 2D Drafting and Customization
Mechanical drawings are the life blood of any project. They define what is fabricated, how it is assembled, the materials used, and a host of other important information about the project. So this topic is important.

Fortunately, Autodesk Inventor makes it easy to construct professionally formatted mechanical drawings. Just setup your templates, title blocks, and boarders and your on your way.

This course shows you the details of customizing all the features you’ll find in professional drawings. From layers to dimension standards and beyond, you’ll learn everything you need to know to get the job done right.

This course includes lessons on 3D annotation. Learn how to professionally produce fully defined 3D models. This is also known as Product Information Management (PIM) and Model Based Definition (MBD). The lessons show you how to fully define and export a model for use within your company or sending to vendors.

Did you know Inventor can make AutoCAD drawings faster than AutoCAD? This course shows you how.

Read through the list of lesson to see that you will learn everything you need to know.

Autodesk Inventor 2017-18: Sheet Metal Design

You can make components interact with forces, pressure, friction, you name it. And it’s simple. You just apply a few physical characteristics to the components, watch them work together, and learn more about your product. Do a little more testing and the quality of your simulation improves with each iteration. So it’s an iterative process that helps you improve your products.

Once you learn the workflow, you can produce accurate Dynamic Simulations faster than you can put presentations together. You might even stop using Inventor Studio to demonstrate your assemblies.

This course uses a trebuchet to help take you to highest level. It shows all the steps required to successfully produce a simulation of an enhanced trebuchet. It also explains the iterative process of improving the results as well as the design. Each step of the way you will practice the iterative process so that you will learn an effective workflow.
