This course covers the fundamental principles of sheet metal design using Autodesk Inventor.
Students learn how to create and manage sheet metal designs. The course focuses on basic sheet metal concepts and techniques, and builds on them to include complex modeling practices for forming sheet metal parts, assemblies, and drawings. Hands-on exercises representing real-world, industry-specific design scenarios are included.
Users should have completed a Learning Autodesk Inventor course and have a working knowledge of the following:
- The Autodesk Inventor user interface and working environments
- Parametric solid modeling concepts and mechanical engineering or design principles
- Microsoft Windows XP or newer
A very enjoyable course taught by a very knowledgeable instructor.
A very enjoyable course taught by a very knowledgeable instructor. Learned a lot and the course was delivered at a good pace for our group.
I found your trainer to be very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and above all, an extremely calm and patient person.
I thought that I would take some time out to drop you a brief line and to thank you for sending such an excellent trainer. I found your trainer to be very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and above all, an extremely calm and patient person.
Our group from Trillium completed our three day essentials CAD training course with Cadline yesterday.
I did do some training in CAD when I was at University, but as a straggler then, I did not get the level of support and help I needed from the lecturer who took that course. Consequently, I found that using CAD was very daunting, a stressor and to be avoided at all costs.
Not now though !!
Your trainer is an excellent ambassador for Cadline. I would like him to have recognition for his calm, patient manner, his helpfulness and most of all, for giving me the nudge I needed to overcome my CAD fears...
Well done to you all and thank you once again.
