Inventor Essential Training

Essentials Course Overview

Course Description

This course will introduce you to the 3D mechanical design within Autodesk Inventor. You will learn about part modeling, parts assembly and creating production-ready part and assembly drawings. You will also learn how to create a simple animation for your model.

Course Duration

3 Days.


The primary objective of this courseware is to provide students with a thorough understanding of the principal 3D design, validation, and documentation processes necessary for developing products using Autodesk Inventor.

What Will You Learn?

  • Using proper techniques and recommended workflows for creating 3D parts.
  • Create, place and constrain components in assembly.
  • Simulate mechanisms, animate assembly designs, and check for interferences.
  • Document designs and assemblies using appropriate drawing views.

Who Should Attend?
