TEDCF Releases Inventor 2011 Tube & Pipe Training Course

Springville, CA, September 21, 2010 – TEDCF Publishing, an Autodesk Authorized Publisher of multi-media courses for Autodesk Inventor, today announced the availability of their Autodesk Inventor 2011: Tube & Pipe Routed Systems training course.

The Inventor 2011 Tube & Pipe Routed Systems module is taught in full detail through the use of short, step-by-step, multi-media movies. The author, David Melvin, PE, demonstrates how to create runs that edit properly and automatically.

“If you’ve ever used the Tube & Pipe module, you know it’s not an intuitive software,” said Melvin. “You must have the right training to use it effectively.”

Another aspect of the course is that users learn how to design and publish custom components. “I have spoken with quite a few Inventor users who have had issues with designing and using custom components,” said John Koop, software engineer and Inventor specialist for TEDCF Publishing. “This has driven us to be able to provide the necessary training to eliminate those issues.”

The 2011 release features a new control panel. Users can view the lessons in full-screen, adjust the playback speed, and skip through or rewind each lesson by clicking the slider.
