Autodesk Inventor (Online Course)



Inventor is a parametric CAD software that offers an easy-to-use set of tools for 3D mechanical design, documentation, and product simulation. Digital Prototyping with Inventor helps you design and validate your products before they are built - to deliver better products, reduce development costs, and get to market faster. 

This course bundle consists of two courses (click the buttons to see the details of the course content):

Inventor The Complete Guide is designed to give you a solid understanding of Inventor features and capabilities from the basics through to advanced and complex 3D modeling components.  You'll follow a workflow-based approach, creating 2D drawings from 3D data, modeling parts, combining parts into assemblies, annotating drawings, using advanced assembly tools, working with sheet metal, plastic parts, and simulation. Topics also include the tools and analyses for adding Tubing and Piping to an Inventor model, as well as decribing how to add Cables and Harnesses.

Access Term

​12 Months


$345.00 - Guided courses qualify for Autodesk Certificates of Completion and come with Technical Help Desk support. The course is structured to be completed in order from beginning to end. Once any topic is completed, you will have full access to it at any time for one year after registration, to use as a resource.

$295.00 - Flexible course delivery allows full access to any area of the course. Because it is not structured, it is not eligible for Autodesk Certificates of Completion, but it does contain all the same content as the Guided version, including the lecture quizzes for your own assessment. Flexible courses are also available to you for one full year after registration. This allows you to find what you need, whenever you need it.
