TEDCF Offers New Inventor 9 Interactive Course

Porterville, CA, October 26, 2004 – TEDCF Publishing, a leading Authorized Autodesk Publisher of interactive courses for Autodesk Inventor, today announced the availability of Autodesk Inventor 9 Accelerated Productivity: Assemblies and Advanced Concepts, the second in a series of courses for Autodesk Inventor 9.

Assemblies and Advanced Concepts provides over 4 1/2 hours of interactive instruction on working with assemblies, iParts and iPart Factories, iFeatures, iMates, and animations. Step-by-Step instruction also shows how to construct adaptive parts and assemblies, mirrored and copied assemblies, and flexible assemblies. Assemblies and Advanced Concepts also includes many other assembly modeling techniques like setting up motion and transitional constraints, checking for collisions, and using the Contact Solver.

“This course clearly demonstrates how to use all the assembly commands you’ll need to create professional assemblies and animations,” said David Melvin, PE, an authorized Autodesk author and author of 11 interactive courses for Autodesk Inventor. “Most of the reference material available today describes the commands, but doesn’t show you how to use them. This course shows you how to use the commands and shows you strategies for using them.”

The lesson player, shown above at half scale, runs on any PC with a CD Drive, sound card, and speakers. Attributes of the lesson player include:

  • Automatic Course Layout – Simply click the Next button to go to the next lesson in the course.
  • Automatic Book Marking – The course automatically opens on the last viewed lesson.
