Join Jana Schmidt for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Autodesk Inventor: Product Design Workflow.
- This course is designed for novice 3D CAD software users who have a basic understanding of Autodesk Inventor but want to sharpen their skills through project-based practice. Software users who have more than 100 hours of Inventor experience may also find this project challenging and enjoyable by adding creative, unique design variations to the caddy project. If you need to brush up on Autodesk Inventor basics, you can check out the Inventor Essentials or the Up and Running with Autodesk Inventor class.
Jana reviews techniques such as setting up your project file; creating and modifying geometry; creating extrusions, sweeps, and lofts; and working with Inventor's freeform tools. She also shows how to combine your parts in an assembly, create presentation-quality animations and still renders of the design, and document the product design with working 2D drawings.
