The Autodesk® Inventor®: Surface and Freeform Modeling course teaches you how to incorporate surfacing and freeform modeling techniques into your design environment.
You begin with instruction on how to create the splines and 3D sketches commonly used in surface creation. Chapters on surface creation focus on using these sketches or existing geometry to create surfaces for use in your solid models. Freeform modeling is also covered, which enables you to create complex shapes without needing the constraints required in a parametric workflow.
To complete the course, you will learn how to use the Autodesk Inventor surface analysis tools to evaluate the continuity between surfaces and the curvature on a surface, determine if the applied draft is within a specified range, and conduct section analysis to evaluate wall thickness values.
The topics covered in this course are also covered in our Autodesk® Inventor®: Advanced Part and Assembly Modeling coursee, which includes a broader range of advanced learning topics.
