I've not used 3D solid modeling other than some very basic tools and haven't dealt with drafting since high school so this was a dive into the deep end and I felt that although I had to pause and replay a few times to follow the tutorial it was rather complete and definately gave the me basic tools needed for creating solid objects in the Inventor tool.

One of the most detailed tutorials I've seen and been through. Great help on courses when you need it. It just gets better and better. Keeps you on you're best game. I've enjoyed this one most of all, can't wait to the next one.

The course is really well done. Covered the many different ways to do solid modeling. Showed how to set up projects in the most productive way. Really sharpened my skills.

This course broke the CAD modeling process into simple and easily followed steps while stressing good practices that apply to any CAD software. I learned far more from this course than my university required CAD class.

This course doesn't just teach what the commands do, but how they affect your design or assembly. Gives a great foundation for building models that can be easily modified without causing rebuild errors in an assembly.

Teaches you how to translate the solid modeling and assembly skills from the other course to drawings and how to customize inventor to your preferences. I wish they didn't assume that people taking the course were coming from AutoCAD, but it's important to know how to export to AutoCAD just the same.

There's much material in the course, and the instructor David Melvin makes it easy to learn. His voice is perfect for my learning style. Some would say it's monotone, but not entirely. It works well to keep you focused - some instructors try to instill levity and often cause distractions, at least for me.

The course speed is good. I found that most of the lessons took me about three times the lesson length if run at normal speed. I often would stop, replay and follow along in order to get it right. I felt that most of the lessons were important to me, so I made sure I could replicate the parts while working through them.

I'm coming from an AutoCAD 3D solids modeling background, so parametric modeling was conceptually difficult at first. But within the first five lessons I felt comfortable. I probably won't be productive with parametric modeling until I actually design parts of my own design, but the course content has prepared me well to tackle a design. I'm sure I will need to use the Search feature (Memory Jogger) to review lessons as needed when doing my own designs. I have used Search to see if I can find stuff that I've learned, and for the most part I could.

I can't think of anything negative about the course - it was a good learning experience.

More thorough than the 2 day seminars offered by the company that sold me the software. It is great to be able to see it in video format (in action) as opposed to having to make sense of the help files. Good job! Can't wait to start on the next section. It is also great to have a reference that I can go back to when I get stuck.

The information provided in this course is extremely thorough in covering the steps and process in creating solid models. My only complaint about this course is that the volume level from topic to topic changes and I have to adjust my speakers each time.

I am now finished with the second module of the Inventor Ultimate Bundle and I am as impressed with this module as I was with the first. Interesting and powerful concepts explained in an easy to understand and follow format. Looking forward to the next module.

As I work my way through the Ultimate Bundle, I continue to be amazed at the methods presented in this course. I have several years of Inventor experience, but this course is teaching me how to get the most out of the software.

Module 4 of the Inventor Ultimate Bundle was extremely informative. I do not have much sheet metal modeling experience, but have worked in the sheet metal industry for several years. I wish I knew then what I know now. The Sheet Metal Design course alone is worth the price of the entire Ultimate Bundle. Thank you TEDCF.

Before using Autodesk Inventor my solid modeling skills were not the best. Thanks to TEDCF and David Melvin I feel more comfortable using Inventor solid Modeling. The course is designed so you learn at your own pace to get a better understanding of the commands. You can always refer back to the sections of the course if you have questions. Found this to be most HELPFUL. The knowledge and clarity of the lessons were beneficial. I strongly agree if someone is looking to learn Inventor this is a great start. I’m looking forward to continuing more courses Thank you, David and TEDCF for your support.

The training sessions are great. I'm learning at my own pace thank you!

Top Notch Course. As a novice to Inventor, I find one learns Parametric CAD faster from a narrated video than from a reading a book or a power point slide. I like how you integrate subtle modeling productivity tricks into real world modeling examples throughout the entire course, rather than introducing them concentrated in fewer lessons. One remembers them better that way. I appreciate the insights on troubleshooting approaches you introduce; those are rarely covered on book courses.

Same applies for your 3D Parametric design approach insights: coming from previous 2D 3D "Static" CAD programs, one needs to approach jobs differently, with a more defined design and organization strategy prior to starting. This forces us to think more like designers/engineers/machinists rather than drafters.

Thank you. Now I realize that I was really only fooling around with Inventor until I used your tutorials.

Your clear, well-written tutorials have taught me how to use Inventor properly and get full value from it. Each lesson builds on previous lessons and introduces the concepts in a clear and logical manner. I can pause and redo sections until I have the concepts clear in my mind. This is far and away the best training for Autodesk Inventor I have seen.

The course was very informative, and very helpful in some ways, yet not very helpful in others. The explanations for certain features was very limited for some one that has never used the software before. The IGES Files that were supposed to be with the training tutorials were not available to copy into the work environment. this could have been due to a download issue on our end, and will be looked into by the IT department. More information on the "BEND PART" Command and the bending of parts would be very helpful. Would like to see more information on the setting of parameters, the setting up of the bill of materials, and on the use of it in the drawing environment.

The lesson on Bow-ties was very helpful, but is a little confusing when watching the demonstration, could it be made more clearer by the presenter.

I would just like to tell you how much I have really appreciated the Inventor Training Course... I just got through going through the TEDCF 4 part program for the second time after a near two year hiatus from using inventor... this second time through was an absolute breeze and pleasure to do in order to sharpen and refresh my skills with the tool, and I also picked up some subtle nuances that I think I missed the first time through.

You have done a great job and I have highly recommended your program to anyone that I have encountered over the last coupe of years who have asked me, first what program I had used to create my drawings and, secondly to counter their perception that Inventor has such a steep learning curve and telling them that TEDCF really flattened the curve and got me up and running overnight.

In the past I had read many books on Inventor but never could figure out from the descriptions exactly how to perform a number of the described operations, and had previously resolved that if I had wanted to ever become highly proficient that I would need to enroll and take a course somewhere. Your CBT completely changed that notion, and in fact I have found it more effective as it is almost like getting one-on-one instruction.

There is one wish that I have, and that is that I really wish that you had a course in AutoCAD as well! I am not sure how many times that you may have seen this request, but just add mine to it!
Thanks again, I have really enjoyed the ease of becoming an expert with Inventor! OK... Best of luck with your new release and keep up the good work!

I have been using AutoCad for many years and needed to learn Inventor for work related projects. This course helped me get up to speed quickly. I really like being able to pause and go back until I understand the lesson in its fullness. It's learning at your own pace and very visual, which makes this learning process very similar to a classroom experience but without the travel and expense. How-to books are great but this is hands on and for me that's the way to go.

I did them all, with the exception of the last IGES lesson on the Bearing Housing, with which I had a lot of problems. I submitted a report on them, and I'm sure they are self inflicted, by selecting the wrong options on opening the file, but I could not get it to go into fusion. I think the lessons are very well presented, and I gained a lot.

I am a mentor for US FIRST Robotics Team 1719 and am working with several other mentors to teach our students to the fundamentals of CAD and how to optimize design utilizing Inventor. Prior to taking the course, I had only some basic exposure to other CAD programs but had never taken the deep-dive. I have now completed the Solid Modeling course and plan to work through the assembly modules next. I found the learning curve to be relatively gentle and could not believe how quickly my proficiency in CAD progressed. Our CAD subteam students are about half way through the solid modeling course and will also proceed to the assembly course next. The Solid Modelling Course is an expertly presented, authoritative course. These courses have been extremely well received by our students. The short video tutorials are easy to follow and access to sample CAD sketches and parts is appreciated. We plan to have our students complete the solid modeling and assembly modules by the beginning of nest year's January build season and expect to have the tools in place to expand our use of CAD in the FIRST 2013 build season. Overall, I would highly recommend Solid Modelling and Assembly courses to anyone with beginner to intermediate skill levels in Inventor. Well Done TEDCF!

The Autodesk Inventor Course provided by TEDCF Publishing gave me a vast knowledge of the program. I've went from not knowing anything about Inventor to being able to design somewhat complex material.

This course like the Solid Modeling furthered my knowledge in Inventor. I knew a little about assembly before this course, but the course gave me a full understanding of the capabilities of inventor. Love the training. .

This is the most perfect course i have ever seen, it really goes in to the depth of the program, and autodesk really have something to learn about teaching there costumors like you do. However during the course i use a lot of time stopping the videos because that i need to write down alle the messurements because they are in inch and not mm, and i find that a bit stupid when i really need to fokus on the course and not the messurements. (This is a note from TEDCF Publishing: Our courses have been upgraded to show both Metric and English units. Thank you Kim for letting us know about this problem.) Also maby in time you could make the course in other langueges, that would really help. I learned autocad the same way back in 2004, started on Friday with no knollage at all on how to use the program and on Monday i started my new job as an constructor. I watch the video, printed his drawing and did it my self after, and so on. More ore less like this. I talked to Autodesk in Denmark, they called me up after i downloaded the free trail on there website, i asked them how i would learn the program when the skech part is so differant from autocad and they told me to take a course of 3 days at Invent in denmark, i have tried that and it gave me nothing and i cost 1500 USD. So i told them about your course and they have never heard about it, wired. Anyway good job, really good job!!! Kim

TEDCF's Solid Modeling course took a complex piece of software (i.e. Inventor) and broke it down into easily understandable components. Before I picked up this tutorial I was hesitant about the amount of time it would take to master Inventor, but after completing the first section of TEDCF's course, I'm confident I can get what I need out of the software. I've looked around and I'm sure this is the best tutorial out there for Inventor.

Excellent course...there is not much more positive to add that is not in the other reviews. One subject not covered that I was looking for is routes that have multiple changes in size. It is very uncommon to have a run all the same size. Most pump connections are smaller than the piping. We use a lot of PVC and size changes with reducing bushings.

Hi, My name is Ashley, I have been involved in the fabrication side of the engineering industry, and only dabbled in the Drafting side of things, although I have watched and followed a lot of video tutorials, so I know most of them are hard to follow, for one reason or another, either, the tutorials aren't in a very good order, or they aren't detailed enough, you can't hear the narrator very well, or as on YouTube, you get to a certain point and they stop,
I can honestly say TEDCF have ticked all those boxes, I am impressed, and the way the provided tutorial player starts off at the last place you were up to each time you start it, makes it easy to pick up where you left off, well done, and thank you.

I'm very happy with this package. I've learned better through this software package than I did when I hired an instructor from one of the tech schools.

This was the second online-type Inventor training course I've taken and it was infinitely more organized than the first. When learning any software--and particularly applications as full-featured and dense as Inventor--it critical to learn the fundamental skills before wading into deeper water. In the other course I took it seemed as though I was thrown immediately into deep water and I was continually struggling to follow along. Eventually I resigned myself to using a third party book.

Then I discovered the TEDCF program and found it to be both well-paced and organized. It's a great tool that allows the user to become fairly proficient simply by watching and following the tutorial lessons.

Great job, guys.

Thank you for the fantastic Solid Modeling Coarse that TEDCF has put together. Your learning curve reduces the time that would be spent reading or or in a class room. You can go back to a certain lesson and review it over and over until you understand the concept. P.S. I hope you will put together a coarse on Inventor Simulation.

Quite a bit of information. Almost requires a second viewing. But I'm sure it will be covered. Again.... Very well Done.
