TEDCF Publishing Releases new Autodesk Inventor 9 Course

Porterville, CA, September 17, 2004 TEDCF Publishing, a leading Authorized Autodesk Publisher of interactive courses for Autodesk Inventor, today announced the availability of Autodesk Inventor 9 Accelerated Productivity: Single Part Solid Modeling, the first in a series of courses for Autodesk Inventor 9.

Single Part Solid Modeling provides over 5 1/2 hours of interactive instruction designed to significantly reduce the learning curve. Step-by-Step instruction is presented in short, fully animated movies that show and tell how to increase productivity with Autodesk Inventor 9 and how to use all the commands involved with creating single part solid models.

The instructor, David Melvin, PE, an authorized Autodesk author and author of 10 interactive courses for Autodesk Inventor said, “I believe this course to be the most comprehensive course I’ve produced so far. I took great care to include detailed descriptions and examples of how to productively use all of the Inventor commands that are used to create single part solid models.”

Autodesk Inventor 9 Accelerated Productivity: Single Part Solid Modeling uses a lesson player that runs on any PC with a CD Drive, sound card, and speakers. Attributes of the lesson player include:
