Autodesk Inventor Advanced Part Modeling

Course Description

Course Length = 2 days

CPC PDH Credits = 14

The goal of this course is to build on the skills acquired in the Autodesk Inventor Essentials course by taking students to a higher level of productivity when designing part models in Inventor. In addition, students will learn about various drawing tools.

In this course, we consider various approaches to part design and emphasize useful strategies. Specific advanced part modeling techniques covered include multi-body design, advanced lofts, advanced sweeps, coils, and surface modeling.

Additional material aimed at increasing efficiency is also included: iFeatures for frequently needed design elements, iParts for similar designs, iLogic for automating part designs, translation options for importing data, and the Engineer’s Notebook for communication. The course also covers some miscellaneous drawing tools such as custom sketches symbols, working with title blocks and borders, and documenting iParts. With an understanding of these tools, students can begin to streamline the design and documentation process.

Course Topics

  • Advanced model appearance options
  • Multi-body part modeling
  • 2D and 3D sketching techniques
  • Advanced geometry creation tools (work features, area lofts, sweeps, coils)
  • Part creation using iLogic
  • Analysis tools
  • Creating and editing basic surfaces
  • Importing surfaces and surface repair tools
  • Using iFeatures and iParts to work efficiently with part models
  • Advanced Drawing tools (tables for iParts, surfaces in drawing views, and custom sketched symbols)
  • Importing and exporting data
  • Adding notes with the Engineer’s Notebook


The class assumes a mastery of Inventor basics as taught in Autodesk Inventor Essentials. Students should know how to create and edit parts, use work features, and create and annotate drawing views, etc.

Course Cost

This 2-day course is $745 per person.
