Covers sketching, part modeling, assemblies and design documentation. Autodesk Inventor uses adaptive technology to speed and simplify the mechanical design process. As a dedicated 3D mechanical computer aided design package, it is ideally suited for conceptual design. The expectation is that students have current training/experience with Computer Aided Design (CAD) or Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM). Students should also be familiar with technical drawing.
- No prerequisites are required for this course.

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Create models that effectively capture design intent. Such models can be easily edited to match design changes with adversely affect other parts of the design.
- Access and effectively use the on-line help system.
- Create, constrain and modify sketched based features.
- Effectively use placed part features.
- Document moderately complex part drawings.
- Use model and drawing properties to create dynamic model documents.
- Assemble and constrain a mechanical assembly.
- Use Autodesk Inventor's adaptive technology to drive model design.
- Model a sheet metal component in the context of an assembly.
- Use a presentation to document an assembly.
- Create 2D documentation and a parts list for an assembly.
