What you'll learn
  • A thorough understanding of Autodesk Inventor for complete beginners
  • A Thorough foundation in Inventor Basic Modelling Skills
  • Outputting Designs for 3D Printing
  • Creating Mechanical Assemblies
  • Dimensioning & Annotating Drawings
  • A working copy of Autodesk Inventor
  • No previous knowledge needed

Learn to design your own parts and machines with Autodesk Inventor. Whether it's for 3D printing, mechanical design or woodworking Inventor is the perfect software to design in 3D. Inventor is used all over the world by professionals to design everything from small models to airliners and spacecraft.

This course is aimed at beginners with no previous experience or little knowledge of Inventor who wants to learn to use the software properly and gain a sound understanding of basic modelling of parts and assemblies. I do not just skim over each subject but go in-depth to really give you an understanding of the foundations on which you can then build on in subsequent courses.

As a CAD user and instructor for over 23 years, I have developed a unique method to teach CAD software. A lot of books and courses out there spend the first parts describing every single command and instruction which can leave the student feeling bored and overwhelmed. It is no good learning what a command does if you don't understand why you need to do it.

In any CAD software, there are a few basic commands you use all the time and many that you don't need to know in order to get started. I believe in teaching these basic actions and getting the student creating drawings straight away. Using the type of drawings you may be asked to create or amend in a real working environment gives the student the confidence to then use what they have learned to create their own designs. More advanced techniques can then be taught as they progress which shows the student why they are being used in various situations. 

I have used this method successfully to teach many students whether they are learning for their own hobby use or for professional reasons and hope to teach you the same way.

**Please Note: This course was recorded on the PC version of Inventor. If you use a MAC then the commands and locations may vary. I do not have a MAC so am unable to help with this but a quick Google search should help you.**

Who this course is for:
  • Beginners with no or little experience
  • Anyone that would like to learn to model for 3D printing
  • Mechanical Engineering Students
