The Autodesk(R) Inventor(R) 2018: Surface and Freeform Modeling student guide 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 student guide, 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 student guide are also covered in ASCENT's Autodesk(R) Inventor(R) 2018: Advanced Part Modeling student guide, which includes a broader range of advanced learning topics. Topics Covered Create spline and 3D sketched entities. Create planar and three-dimensional surfaces. Combine individual surface features into a single quilted surface. Add or remove material in a model by referencing a surface. Create solid geometry using surface geometry. Remove portions of a surface using a reference surface or work plane. Manipulate the extent of a surface by extending or stretching it. Create a new solid face by replacing an existing solid face with surface geometry. Remove existing surfaces or solid faces from a model. Copy surfaces from one model into another. Create freeform geometry base shapes, faces, and converted geometry. Edit freeform base geometry by manipulating existing geometry or adding new elements to the base shape. Use the surface analysis tools to evaluate continuity between surfaces, check draft values, analyze curvature on a surface, and review sectioned areas of the model.

This unique text presents a thorough introduction to Autodesk Inventor for anyone with little or no prior experience with CAD software. It can be used in virtually any setting from four year engineering schools to on-the-job use or self-study. Unlike other books of its kind, it begins at a very basic level and ends at a very advanced level. It’s perfect for anyone interested in learning Autodesk Inventor quickly and effectively using a “learning by doing” approach. The philosophy behind this book is that learning computer aided design programs is best accomplished by emphasizing the application of the tools. Students also seem to learn more quickly and retain information and skills better if they are actually creating something with the software program. The driving force behind this book is “learning by doing.” The instructional format of this book centers on making sure that students learn by doing and that students can learn from this book on their own. In fact, this is one thing that differentiates this book from others: the emphasis on being able to use the book for self-study. The presentation of Autodesk Inventor is structured so that no previous knowledge of any CAD program is required. This book uses the philosophy that Inventor is mastered best by concentrating on applying the program to create different types of solid models, starting simply and then using the power of the program to progressively create more complex solid models. The Drawing Activities at the end of each chapter are more complex iterations of the part developed by each chapter’s objectives. CAD programs are highly visual, there are graphical illustrations showing how to use the program. This reinforces the “learn by doing” philosophy since a student can see exactly what the program shows, and then step through progressive commands to implement the required operations. Rather than using a verbal description of the command, a screen capture of each command is replicated.

The AutoCAD(R)/AutoCAD LT(R) 2018: Fundamentals student guide is designed for those using AutoCAD(R) or AutoCAD LT(R) 2018 with a Windows operating system. This student guide is not designed for the AutoCAD for Mac software. The objective of AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT 2018: Fundamentals is to enable students to create a basic 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software. Part 1 (chapters 1 to 20) covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The teaching strategy is to start with a few basic tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools. More advanced tools are introduced throughout the student guide. Not every command or option is covered, because the intent is to show the most essential tools and concepts, such as: Understanding the AutoCAD workspace and user interface. Using basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. Organizing drawing objects on layers. Inserting reusable symbols (blocks). Preparing a layout to be plotted. Adding text, hatching, and dimensions. Part 2 (chapters 21 to 32) continues with more sophisticated techniques that extend your mastery of the software. For example, here you go beyond the basic skill of inserting a block to learning how to create blocks, and beyond the basic skill of using a template to understand the process of setting up a template. You learn skills such as: Using more advanced editing and construction techniques. Adding parametric constraints to objects. Creating local and global blocks. Setting up layers, styles, and templates. Using advanced plotting and publishing options. This student guide refers to both the AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT software as the AutoCAD software. All topics, including features and commands, relate to both the AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT software unless specifically noted otherwise. Prerequisites A working knowledge of basic design/drafting procedures and terminology. A working knowledge of your operating system.
