Autodesk® Inventor® software provides professional-grade engineering solutions for 3D mechanical design, simulation, tool creation, and design communication that help you to make great products, cost-effectively, in less time. With Inventor software, engineers can integrate 2D and 3D data into a single design environment, creating a virtual representation of the final product that enables them to validate the form, fit, and function before it’s built.


Why master 2D sketching?

In the context of CAD, all 3D parametric objects usually starts out as 2D sketches.

When creating technical drawings your 2D sketches ends up very similar to your final drawings.

2D sketches holds the very foundation of your 3D model and 2D drawings.


Why master sketch constraints?

Constraints are the tools that binds and reinforces your sketched geometry.

In a typical machine, constraints are like the nuts and bolts the holds the assembly together.

Without constraints all of our sketched geometries are loose and unstable.


With Autodesk Inventor you will have the power to overcome this challenges:

• Increase innovation while reducing time to market

• Repurpose existing DWG™ design data

• Prepare non-native CAD models for new designs

• Optimize product performance while minimizing physical prototypes

• Rapidly create production-ready drawings for manufacturing

• Collaboration with architects on BIM projects

• Reduce time spent searching for designs for reuse

• Piping and wiring designs take too long to develop

• Multiple CAD systems for design and manufacturing

• Automate processes to satisfy demands for mass customization


By the end of this course, you will have a solid foundation on 2D sketching, understanding of sketch constraints and be enthusiastic in discovering advance techniques in part and assembly creation.
