In this course we will be providing you an understanding of parametric design philosophy through a hands-on, practice-initiated curriculum. Students will be learning the key skills and knowledge needed and used for designing models with the help of Autodesk Inventor. First, we will start with developing conceptual sketching, then we will proceed with solid modeling, assembly designing, and production drawing.


  • Autodesk Inventor Software Interface and understanding it
  • Create, constraint and dimensioning of 2D Sketches
  • Create and edit a solid base 3D feature using a sketch
  • Create and edit secondary solid features which are sketched and placed
  • Create equations and work with parameters
  • Manipulation of model display
  • Feature failures and their resolution
  • Geometry duplication in model
  • Place and constraint/connect parts in assemblies
  • Display of contents and their manipulation in assembly
  • Components duplication in an assembly
  • Getting measurements of model and property information
  • Create presentation files
  • Modify and analyze components in an assembly
  • Simulation of motion in an assembly
  • Parts and feature creation in assemblies
  • Create and edit an assembly bill of materials
  • Work with projects
  • Drawing and views and their creation and annotation
