Courses in this path


This section is an introduction to Inventor. You then move into the essentials of creating parts, assemblies, and drawings. The courses covering the essentials teaches you the basics of part design, editing and reusing geometry with patterns and symmetry. You can then take those parts into assemblies and communicate those designs with professional manufacturing drawings.


Once you’ve mastered the essentials, you can level up and improve your skills in designing multi-body parts. You'll also learn to create complex curvature to your designs and improve aesthetics. You'll also learn to easily create multiple versions of your parts and assemblies and explore display and visualization options.
