Autodesk Inventor - Assembly and Machine Design


In this course, delegates learn the recommended workflows and advanced functionalities for creating 3D assemblies using Autodesk® Inventor™. Delegates explore the proper techniques and recommended workflows for skeletal modeling, adaptive design, derived design, and functional design. Delegates also learn how to quickly create steel frame designs, create and document welded designs, and publish custom parts using the Content Center. Hands-on exercises representing real-world, industry-specific design scenarios are included. The primary objective of this course is to teach delegates the recommended workflows and advanced skills needed to create and modify complex assembly designs in Autodesk Inventor. After completing this course, the delegate will be proficient in advanced assembly modeling techniques. This course is designed for experienced Autodesk Inventor users.


2 Days (9:30am – 4:30pm) Demonstration & Practical Exercises


Delegates should have completed an Autodesk Inventor Essentials course and have a working knowledge of Parametric part and assembly design using Autodesk Invent, parametric solid modeling concepts and design or mechanical engineering principles and Microsoft® Windows® 2000/XP/Vista/7.
