Why learn Autodesk Inventor?

Inventor is a software used by many engineering and scientific businesses. There is always a need for someone who can turn a concept into an actual design to later be manufactured or built. Having the ability to create 3D models for prototyping can greatly help you perfect your design and save costs of having to build it before seeing what it looks like. By taking this course you could open yourself up to new opportunities. Some of the benefits for taking this course include:

  • Flexibility Learning
  • Learning by Watching and Doing
  • Becoming More Competitive in the Workforce
  • Understand What It Takes to Create a Design
What this course offers

Engineer and Educator

My background is in engineering with an emphasis in physics. I have a passion for learning and teaching those that enjoy learning as much as I do. I am a jack of many trades and want to try to make the complex topics much easier to understand by focusing on the essential concepts. Many engineers might know this as the KISS Principle. So my goal is to avoid any unnecessary complexity in trying to convey essential topics to you. Learning from my mistakes and gaining the tricks that I have learned along the way will give you a great foundation and help you take that next step.
