AUD001: Autodesk Inventor Basics

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

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.

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

Prerequisites: None!

Safety: Closed-toed shoes are required.

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.

Fusion 360 is Autodesk’s latest product development tool for design, fabrication and collaboration. Merging industrial and mechanical design, you will quickly explore organic shapes through intuitive free-form modeling tools, or create precise, parametric models – it’s up to you! Simply put, Fusion 360 is the platform for rapidly accelerating from an idea in your head to a manufactured product in your hand.

In this introductory course, you will learn about:
  • Cloud data management and collaboration
  • Navigation
  • Solid modeling
  • 2D sketching
  • T-spline sculpting
  • Creating assemblies
  • Rendering
By the end of class, you will have an understanding of direct and parametric modeling, dimensioned sketches, T-spline geometry, and much more!

Prerequisites: None!

AUD009: Autodesk Inventor for Mold Design

Injection mold design and manufacturing can be one of the most expensive and time consuming processes in manufacturing and prototyping. But it doesn't have to be.

Autodesk Inventor has a number of incredible software tools that make designing complex parts much easier. The feature-rich mold design section covered in this class is one of them.

In this class, the instructor will cover several tools that are available to automate key aspects of injection mold design and testing.

Learn how parts modeled in Inventor can be used to automatically generate an efficient mold as well as how Inventor ensures that any changes to the digital model are automatically reflected in your mold design.

When you are done with your design, the file can be exported to a variety of different CAM (computer aided manufacturing) packages to generate the code needed to machine your mold on equipment such as TechShop's CNC Tormach mill. Once you've machined your mold, it can be used to manufacture parts on TechShop's Morgan Press injection molding machine.

This class is a fantastic way to do in-house rapid prototyping and can help you cut down on the number of iterations needed before you have a working final mold ready for production on any scale.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of AUD001: Autodesk Inventor Basics is REQUIRED prior to taking this class

Safety: Closed-toed shoes are required.
