Can you handle the pressure of inventing for civil? This is a down-and-dirty course in Inventor software and Inventor LT software for civil engineers, civil designers, and civil CAD managers. We'll cover the skills needed in Inventor software to create parts and assemblies specifically for infrastructure projects. We'll then add those parts to Parts Editor and export them to gravity or pressure networks in both AutoCAD Civil 3D software and InfraWorks software. During the class, we'll design a curb inlet in 3 parts, import it into Parts Editor, and place it into an assembly. From the assemblies and families in Parts Editor, we'll create an AutoCAD Civil 3D Parts catalog. Lastly, we'll import the new catalog into AutoCAD Civil 3D and apply the new part to a storm drainage system. As a bonus, we'll repeat all these steps and show you how to import the new part into InfraWorks and apply it to a storm drainage system there. If the gravity of your infrastructure designs is serious enough that you need to reinvent parts, this class is for you!
Civil designers and engineers who are interested in creating and editing their own parts with the Parts Editor for Civil 3D and Infraworks.

This class will be an introduction or reintroduction to Inventor mechanical design and 3D CAD software. It will also go into general detail about many of the common issues that come up on the Inventor forums. It is generally understood that there are more intermediate and advanced Inventor software classes at Autodesk University; however, sometimes you need to go back to the basics to discover or rediscover some of the features you might not know about or understand-whether they be hard to find, or confusing to know how to use. This session will feature Inventor Professional software.
Take your design development to the next level by furthering your knowledge of iCopy functionality in Inventor software. By learning how to create an adaptive frame model to develop complex geometric parts there are limitless opportunities for designers to create intricate adaptive components. This hands-on lab goes 1 step further and explains how to create aligned hole/notch pattern features between 2 separate components with differing profiles and end conditions. Today's advanced geometric designs and tight project schedules require designers to be quick and efficient with their part modeling. If you are looking for an opportunity to learn how to streamline your parts development through the use of advanced iCopy part modeling, this class is for you.
