However, another possibility is to introduce students first to solid modeling using Inventor and then to introduce AutoCAD as a 2D product. Students learn to create solid models using Inventor and then learn how to create working drawings of their 3D models using AutoCAD. This approach provides students with a strong understanding of the process used to create models and drawing in the industry.
This book contains a series of tutorial style lessons designed to introduce Autodesk Inventor, AutoCAD, solid modeling, and parametric modeling. It uses a hands-on, exercise-intensive approach to all the import parametric modeling techniques and concepts. The lessons guide the user from constructing basic shapes to building intelligent mechanical designs, creating multi-view drawings and assembly models.
Introduction to Inventor/AutoCAD 2010 consists of ten chapters from Parametric Modeling using Inventor 2010 and six chapters from AutoCAD 2010 Tutorial-First Level: 2D Fundamentals. This book is available only as a three hole punch book for use in a spiral binder.
This book is used by Ohio State in their freshman engineering program.
