AUD006: Autodesk Inventor - Basics

Learn how to navigate, sketch and model in Autodesk Inventor.

In this class, you will gain a basic understanding of parametric design; file types; dimensioning; geometric constraints; patterns; adding text; inserting image files; basic modeling including Extrude, Revolve, Loft and Sweep; assemblies; exporting your file and creating laser-able and CAMable files. The goal is to provide you with enough tools to use Inventor at a solid, basic level and to inspire you to seek out more advanced features such as simulation, mold making and sheet metal.

We will use the book, “Mastering Autodesk Inventor 2013,” to explain and teach concepts. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you purchase the book and bring it to class. For your convenience, it is available in the TechShop retail store.

TechShop members who take this class will receive $35 in store credit after the completion of the class.

AUD1104: Autodesk Fusion 360 - Basics

Fusion 360 is Autodesk’s latest product development tool for design, fabrication, and collaboration. Merging Industrial and Mechanical design, quickly explore organic shapes through intuitive free-form modeling tools, or create precise, parametric models – it’s up to you! You will leave this course with an understanding of direct and parametric modeling, dimensioned sketches, T-spline geometry, and so much more. More specifically, in this course, you will learn about:



Cloud data management & Collaboration

Navigation

Solid Modeling

2D-Sketching

T-Spline sculpting

Creating Assemblies

Rendering



Simply put, Fusion 360 is the platform for rapidly accelerating from an idea in your head to a manufactured product in your hand.

AUD003: Autodesk Inventor SkillsBuilder - Introduction to Assemblies

This SkillsBuilder class will provide you with an accelerated introduction to creating and working with assemblies in Autodesk Inventor.

You will learn how to create simple assemblies and utilize some of the software's more advanced features to combine multiple part drawings and sub-assemblies. Be amazed as you virtually assemble your parts on screen and watch how they interact! Learn to constrain them to have all the parts act as one and how each change links back to the original part file.

Autodesk Inventor is a comprehensive and flexible software suite created exclusively for 3D design, product simulation, tooling creation, and design communication. Inventor takes you beyond your average 3D software environment into digital prototyping by enabling you to design, visualize, and simulate your products with an intuitive and user friendly interface.

We recommend taking this class, along with the Autodesk Inventor SkillsBuilder - Introduction to Sketching class to get a fuller understanding of this powerful 3D design tool!

Autodesk Inventor is available at TechShop on all computer workstations in our Members HUB and Computer Lab.



***Prerequisite: You must be an experienced Autodesk Inventor user or complete the AUD006: Autodesk Inventor - Basics class***

Once you take and successfully pass this class, you can use this equipment for your projects whenever you work at TechShop as a member!

AUD008: Autodesk AutoCAD - Basics

Autodesk AutoCAD has a long history as one being of the very first CAD (computer aided drafting) programs available for personal computers. Today, AutoCAD software builds on this legacy and is still one of the world's leading 2D and 3D CAD design tools.

In this course, you will learn how to draw precise, vector-based CAD drawings that can be interpreted and used by CAM (computer aided machining) programs. The vector drawing skills taught in this class are the basis for creating designs to be used with TechShop's Epilog laser cutters, CNC vinyl cutter, Tormach CNC mill, ShopBot router, Flow waterjet cutter, and CNC plasma cutter. The 2D drawing skills taught in this course also translate to designing, drawing and manipulating 3D parts in other Autodesk software such as Autodesk Inventor and Revit.

Learn:
  • How to set up your workspace for efficiency
  • How to draw with arcs, polylines, splines and more
  • How to use text and reference images in your designs
  • How layers work
  • The theory behind drawing clean vectors
  • Optimization tips and tricks
