Autodesk Inventor LT: Learning

Course Description

Course Length = 3 days

CPC PDH Credits = 21

Learn the fundamental principles of 3D parametric part design and creating production-ready part drawings using Autodesk® Inventor® LT. Hands-on exercises representing real-world, industry-specific design scenarios are included.

Training Objectives

Provide users with a thorough understanding of the principal 3D design, and documentation processes necessary for developing products using Autodesk Inventor LT.

After completion, users will:

  • Capture design intent by using the proper techniques and recommended workflows for creating intelligent 3D parametric parts.
  • Document designs using base, projected, section, detail, and isometric drawing views.
  • Follow drafting standards while dimensioning and annotating drawing views.
