• Inventor (Beginner & Intermediate) About Course

Course Overview

Autodesk Inventor is a computer-aided design application for 3D mechanical design, simulation, visualization, and documentation. InventorĀ® CAD software provides professional-grade 3D mechanical design, documentation, and product simulation tools. Work efficiently with a powerful blend of parametric, direct, freeform, and rules-based design capabilities. This course combines the basic and intermediate levels of inventor training. This practical hands-on course teaches you the fundamental tools and techniques needed to create your own 3D digital prototypes and modeling projects.
