Have you ever been interested in designing parts utilizing Freeform modeling? In this course, Getting Started with Freeform Modeling in Inventor, you'll learn and develop an understanding of the SubD modeling process in Autodesk's Inventor. First, you'll begin by exploring the difference between traditional solid/surface geometry and the subdivided geometry. Next, you'll learn how to create new SubD faces, primitives, and how to convert existing model faces into easily editable SubD models. Finally, you'll gain a firm grasp of creating and editing SubD models by walking through a few examples, such as creating a car mirror, a car hood, and converting a face of a car fender for modifications. By the end of the course, you'll have a solid foundation with Inventor Freeforms and be on your way to designing your own products.

Course Overview
Hey everyone, my name is Matt Perez, and welcome to my course, Get Started with Freeform Modeling in Autodesk Inventor. I'm an applications expert at SolidBox providing CAD consulting and training across the country. Inventor is a mechanical CAD program that packs some amazing functionality. In this course, we're going to learn the basics of designing parts using freeform modeling in Inventor. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include freeform Sub-D creation, Brep to Nurbs conversion, and Sub-D manipulation. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid foundation with Inventor freeforms and be on your way to designing your own products. Before beginning the course, it would help to be familiar with Inventor in general, as well as having an understanding of Surfacing, but it's laid out so the topics are arranged from easy to more difficult, so anyone can follow along. I hope you join me on this journey to learn Inventor with Get Started with Freeform Modeling in Autodesk Inventor course, at Pluralsight.
