This course is designed to give you a solid understanding of Inventor 2013 features and capabilities from the basics through to advanced components.
This course has been carefully structured not only to give you the knowledge and skills you need to be a successful Inventor user, but also to prepare you for the Autodesk Certification exams. You will be provided with a thorough understanding of the principal 3D design, validation, and documentation processes necessary for developing products using Autodesk Inventor.
After completion, you will understand:
- Inventor interface
- Creating 2D sketches
- Constraining and dimensioning sketches
- Generating 3D parts from sketches
- Part modeling, adding, and editing 3D features
- Work Features
- Model geometry and model display manipulation
- Resolving feature failures
- Automotive Technician
- Part Modellers
- Assembly Modellers
- Mechanical Engineers/Mechanical Technicians
This course is delivered 100% online. Upon enrolment students are issued with a login and password, providing access to OCA's e-learning centre. For a full demo of the OCA student experience from enrolment to graduation click here.
This course is designed to use multiple learning styles including audio, video, interactivity, and quizzes to test your knowledge.
Recognition & Accreditation
Upon successful completion of this course you will receive an Official ATC (Authorised Training Centre) certificate. There are no pre-requisites to this course. You'll perform faster, smarter, and better with Autodesk® software products when you turn to the Autodesk® Authorised Training Center (ATC®) network. Many organisations provide training on Autodesk software, but only the educational institutions and private training providers recognised as ATC sites have met Autodesk's rigorous standards of excellence.
