Learning Autodesk Inventor 2016

Video Description

In this Autodesk Inventor 2016 training course, expert author Adam Cooper teaches you the fundamental tools and techniques needed to create your own 3D digital prototypes and modeling projects. This course is designed for the absolute beginner, meaning no prior experience with Inventor is required.

You will start with a tour of the Inventor 2016 user interface, and then jump into learning about basic sketching. Adam will teach you how to sketch basic features, such as creating an extrusion, secondary features, and work features. This video tutorial will teach you how to sketch advanced features, use parameters and equations, and work with duplication tools. You will then move into the assembly environment, learning how to build an assembly from the parts you created, interact with the assembly, and create a presentation view of the assembly. Finally, you will cover basic view creation and dimensioning methods.

Once you have completed this computer based training course, you will have a comprehensive understanding of how to use the tools in Inventor 2016 to create your own modeling projects. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the les
