Autodesk Inventor® 2012 Training Course

Discover the program structure and essential features of Autodesk Inventor with this Autodesk Inventor 2012 training DVD covering 320 individual video tutorials and over 25 hours of instructor-led training. Your instructor, Erik Kurek, will teach you how to leverage the software to perform 3D mechanical design, product simulation, tooling creation, and design communication. Lessons cover basic and advanced topics including getting started in the application, working with assemblies, creating and editing parts, iFeatures, iLogic, and advanced techniques for sketching, constraints and modeling.

As a flexible CAD training solution, you can sort the lessons and progress from beginner to advanced topics; or just review seldom used commands and added functionality of new releases.

"This tutorial is awesome! I've been trying to learn ADT on my own, and with some incorrect advice from others trying to learn on their own. My frustration has completely subsided and I have started a new project with confidence and ease. It took me about a day and a half to get through the 'beginner' portion of the DVD and now I'm actually building an intelligent set of dwgs. With the DVD, if I forget how to do a command, I simply click on that lesson again and then I can move-on. I give it an A+."

Features & Benefits of Autodesk Inventor 2012 Training CBT:

  • Use at Your Office or at Home
    Training software can be installed on a PC or laptop.
  • Powerful Keyword Search
    Quickly locate relevant lessons or reference seldom used commands.
  • Sort Lessons By Skill Level
    Work your way from Beginner to Advanced level topics.
  • Exercise Files
    Make the most of your learning experience by opening the included exercise files directly in your own software (if you own a copy of the AutoCAD software) while following along with the instructor-led video tutorials; this training does not come with the AutoCAD software.
  • Intelligent History
    Track the lessons you’ve completed or restart a lesson exactly where you left off.
