Autodesk Inventor

Autodesk Inventor The Complete Guide is designed to give you a solid understanding of Inventor features and capabilities from the basics through to advanced and complex 3D modeling components.  You’ll follow a workflow-based approach, creating 2D drawings from 3D data, modeling parts, combining parts into assemblies, annotating drawings, using advanced assembly tools, working with sheet metal, plastic parts, and simulation.  Inventor is a parametric CAD software that offers an easy-to-use set of tools for 3D mechanical design, documentation, and product simulation. Digital Prototyping with Inventor helps you design and validate your products before they are built – to deliver better products, reduce development costs, and get to market faster.
