Hi and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Javier Chavez and I am thrilled to show you how to start creating parts in Autodesk Inventor, a professional grade 3D CAD software.

This entry level course will walk you through the steps required to turn your designs into three dimensional parametric part models. In addition you will learn best practices and techniques commonly used ease in editing and re-use of your designs.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • Accessing the right tools and model orientation through the Interface and Navigation
  • Building a foundation for design by Creating the Base Feature
  • Creating Additional Features to finish your design
  • Making changes to your design by Editing Parts
By the end of this course, you will be able to create and modify your designs using Autodesk Inventor utilizing a best practice approach.

All that is necessary to begin this course are:
  • basic computer skills
  • a knowledge of common drafting/design practices
  • And access to Autodesk Inventor.
This course utilizes Inventor Release 2016; however most of the concepts and features apply to all releases Inventor.

Creating parts is a necessary step in creating assembly models and drawings. Be sure to also check out our other getting started in Inventor courses in the Pluralsight library.

I look forward to helping you turn your designs into three dimensional parametric part models with the “Get started Part Modeling in Autodesk Inventor “ course at Pluralsight.
