Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the course, students will be competent in:
- modifying the Autodesk Inventor design environment oand create appropriate template files, parts lists and attach design information to them.
- designing sheet metal parts as well as welded parts with appropriate documentation.
- designing parametric part families.
- utilising the special design tools in Inventor, such as shaft generator and various parametric parts.

Student's Workload

Will be announced at the beginning of the course.
