Description

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.

Course Overview
Hi everyone. This is Jomarc, and welcome to Parametric Modeling and Sketch Constraints in Autodesk Inventor. I am a Mechanical Design Engineer and a Training Manager for MechaniWeb, an Autodesk Authorized Academic Partner. In this Autodesk Inventor course, I will secure your understanding and mastery of the essential part modeling techniques. Notably, 2D sketching, sketch constraints, design intent, and parametric part modeling strategies. By the end of this course you will be very comfortable and hungry for more complex parametric parts, and move in to assembly creation. Join me as we all embark in this fun and learning experience with Parametric Modeling and Sketch Constraints in Inventor. Now let's get started on your first module.
