Parametric Modeling and Sketch Constraints in Inventor

by Jomarc Baquiran

In this course, you'll learn to have appreciation, understanding, and mastery of sketch constraints and part modeling in Inventor. You'll be presented with a 2D drawing and a challenge to model it in 3D. Software required: Autodesk Inventor 2016.

What you'll learn

Sketches and part modeling in a typical 3-4 day CAD class usually consumes 50% of the time, and a very important aspect of parametric CAD modeling is constraints. In this course, Parametric Modeling and Sketch Constraints in Inventor, you'll obtain clear understanding and mastery of sketch constraints and part modeling. First, you'll start creating 2D sketches and turning them into profiles, which in turn can be extruded into a 3D model. Next, you'll progress into creation of multiple sketches, leading to the realization of importance of sketch constraints. Finally, you'll be modeling familiar 3D parts, putting sketch constraints into action. By the end of this course, you'll be very comfortable and hungry for more complex parametric parts and to move into assembly creation. Software required: Autodesk Inventor 2016.
