Autodesk Inventor Sheet Metal Design Course Duration: 2 Days

Course Overview

Course Description This course introduces the concepts and techniques of sheet metal modelling with Autodesk Inventor. The structure of the course follows the typical stages of using Inventor and will teach you how to create sheet metal parts, edit them, generate flat patterns, and document the designs in drawings.





The class assumes prior knowledge of 3D solid part modelling using Autodesk Inventor. In addition, some background with designing and drafting 3D parts is recommended. Although it is not required, knowledge of sheet metal processing is helpful as you will learn to use the sheet metal design tools.
