Description

Have you ever needed to convert a 2D file to a 3D file? If so, 2D to 3D Conversion with Inventor is the course for you. First, you'll begin to work with the neutral DWG file format and the information it contains. Then, you'll open and import DWG files with Autodesk Inventor. With the first sample file imported, you'll walk through the challenges associated with recreating design intent off a 2D "print". A secondary example of a multi feature part will be examined as well. By the end of this course, you'll have all the tools and knowledge needed to help convert your legacy 2D CAD data into Feature Rich 3D models. Software required: Inventor.

Course Overview
Hey everyone, my name is Matt Perez, and welcome to my course, 2D to 3D Conversion with Autodesk inventor. I'm an applications expert at SolidBox providing CAD consulting and training across the country. Inventor is a mechanical CAD program that packs some amazing functionality. In this course we're going to learn the basics of converting legacy 2D DWG files to 3D in Inventor. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include, what a DWG file is, DWG imports to sketches, and associative link between AutoCAD and Inventor. By the end of this course you'll have a solid foundation with Inventor 2D to 3D and be on your way to converting your own legacy DWG files. Before beginning the course it would help to be familiar with Inventor in general, but it's laid out so the topics are arranged from easy to more difficult so anyone can follow along. I hope you join me on this journey to learn Inventor with the 2D to 3D Conversion with Autodesk Inventor course, at Pluralsight.
