(PRWEB) May 22, 2014 -- Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its "Learning Autodesk Inventor 2014 Tutorial," an introductory course designed to assist inventors in beginning to model and simulate prototypes with this powerful 3D modeling application.
Autodesk Inventor is a 3D mechanical CAD program for creating digital prototypes used in the design and simulation of products. Inventor uses an integrated motion simulator in an assembly stress environment, allowing users to input load and friction characteristics to simulate how a product will function in real-world conditions.
In this introductory course, "Learning Autodesk Inventor 2014 Training Video", designers learn the essential skill-set for using this powerful software.
An Inventor user since 1999, course author Adam Cooper is a career mechanical engineer who works mainly in plastic installation design for the automotive industry. He is also an accomplished trainer and a regular speaker at Autodesk University. He is an Autodesk Certified Instructor in Inventor and several other Autodesk programs.
Cooper begins with an overview of the Inventor 2014 interface, introducing major concepts such as parametric features, associative files, and model documentation, as he helps students establish best practices for using Inventor.
Cooper then dives into Inventor's functionality, explaining the tools involved in sketching such as using lines, circles and arcs, and fillets and chamfers, along with guidelines for creating successful sketches.
The course continues with chapters explaining how to work with constraints and dimensions, additional sketch features, and other essential drawing tools.
Cooper then goes in-depth with assembly design, explaining how to work with constraints, joints, patterning and mirroring components, and much more.
Other chapters teach more advanced functionality such as creating views, using exploded assembly views, dimensioning methods, annotations, and creating a bill of materials and a parts list.
"Essentially, digital prototyping is a revolutionary approach to product development that lets you design and visualize and simulate products rapidly and cost-effectively," Cooper explains.
"Throughout this course we're going to experience digital prototyping and how the software helps us realize our ideas before they're ever built."
