Inventor® 2017 Sheet Metal Design (2day)

Jul 25 2017 - 08:00 - Fredericton

What Autodesk® Inventor® Sheet Metal is all about!

Inventor Sheet Metal Design introduces the techniques of modeling sheet metal using  Autodesk Inventor. The structure of the class follows the typical stages of  using Inventor to create and edit sheet metal parts. It also covers the  generation of flat patterns, and documentation of the design with drawings.  The class is industry specific but can be  applied to other environments such as cardboard box design and layout. Class  numbers are small (maximum 8 students) meaning that you have ample  opportunity to discuss your specific requirements with the Instructor and  work out any problems you are having.


What you need to know before. This course is designed for the Microsoft Windows user who possesses working  knowledge of Autodesk Inventor software. Although not required, knowledge of  sheet metal processing is helpful while students learn the design tools in  Inventor.
