Get some help with learning how to leverage patterns and symmetry tools to create parts and assemblies as efficiently as possible. In this course, Inventor Essentials – Patterns and Symmetry, you'll learn how to create symmetry and patterns in the sketch, part, and assembly environment. First, you'll discover how to recognize and generate rectangular and circular patterns in Parts. Next, you'll cover how to build parts with symmetrical features. Finally, you'll explore how to create both patterns and symmetry in an assembly environment. By the end of this course, you'll know how to streamline the process of creating parts and assemblies. Software required: Autodesk Inventor 2016.

Course Overview Welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Javier Chavez, and I'm thrilled to show you how you can apply some of the tools and techniques that I've used throughout my career to streamline the process of creating designs in Autodesk Inventor, a professional-grade 3D CAD software. Now, many designs require the creation of repetitive features. This course will show you how to create symmetry and patterns in the sketch, part, and assembly environment. Some of the major topics that we will cover include recognizing and generating rectangular and circular patterns in parts, building parts with symmetrical features, and of course, creating both patterns and symmetry in an assembly environment. By the end of this course, you'll know how to streamline the process of creating parts and assemblies by recognizing how to create patterns and symmetry, utilizing tools in the sketch, part, and assembly environments. Not much is required before beginning the course, but users should have basic computer skills and a knowledge of common drafting or design practices. Basic experience with Inventor parts and assemblies is required. Throughout the course, we'll utilize files created in Inventor release 2016. So in order to open and work with these files, you'll want to have access to Inventor release 2016 or later. I really look forward to helping you learn how to create repetitive patterns and symmetrical designs with the Inventor Essentials - Pattern and Symmetry course, here at Pluralsight.
