TEDCF Publishing currently uploads over two hours of new lessons each week, which are automatically downloaded to user computers. All seven courses totaling over 40 hours of training will be uploaded and available for download by July 31st. The upgradeable DVD will also contain the lessons from all seven courses and can be used to install just the Solid Modeling course or all seven courses. The DVD is scheduled to ship on July 31st.
“This is an exciting year,” said David Melvin, PE and author of the course. “Autodesk has added several enhancements to Inventor that significantly improves workflow. Users can share material and appearance libraries across several applications, and the UI just keeps getting better. It’s been a pleasure to produce training for Inventor 2013.”
TEDCF Publishing has also enhanced their Lesson Player. Along with adjustable playback speed and a lesson search engine, users can now assign global hotkeys.
