CADD-1000Autodesk Inventor - Essentials
More Information

This course is designed to provide students with an introduction to and an understanding of the basic functions of Inventor solid modeling software. Students successfully completing this course will be able to produce accurate part models, assemblies and create working drawings in both imperial and metric measurements. They will understand the concepts of parametric modeling, using default templates, create sketches and features, modify sketches and features, create work features, troubleshoot modeling files and gain a basic understanding drafting principles.  Instruction will be given in a hands-on environment through a combination of lecture, demonstration, practice and assignments.

Prerequisites:
CADD-1001Revit 1
More Information

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is revolutionizing the design and construction process. Learn how to use Revit, the most widely recognized BIM software by Autodesk. Revit is unlike CAD. Revit uses intelligent objects instead of lines and circles. You create walls; not a bunch of lines that represent walls. When you insert a window or door into a wall, Revit knows that it must create a hole in the wall to accommodate that window or door. Not only does Revit produce traditional deliverables like plans, elevations, and sections, it also creates a 3D model that can be used to visualize your project or extract intelligent data regarding the construction of your project. Learn the basics now, so that you are ready when your company decides to make the jump.
Students will be introduced to Revit from an architectural perspective producing multistory plans, elevations, sections, details, schedules and 3D views.

Prerequisites:
