Mechanical Fundamentals (Three Days)
In this course, users learn the features, tools, and proper
techniques for creating 2D mechanical drawings using AutoCAD Mechanical.
The hands-on exercises, representing real-world design scenarios, teach users
how to efficiently create mechanical designs and engineering production
Course Objectives After
completing this course, you will be able to:
- Identify the main interface elements, their setup, and what
Help information is available. Create and use drawing template files.
- Describe the object property management system, where
layers are configured, and the tools for manipulating layers.
- Describe the workflows for organizing drawing geometry and
create Mechanical structure in a drawing by creating components, component
views, and folders.
- Describe the core mechanical design tools of rectangle,
hatch, fillet, chamfer, holes, slots, and threads and how to use them to
create and modify geometry in your drawings.
- Modify and edit drawing objects by creating multiple offset
copies, by scaling them with separate values for the X and Y direction, or
by using a power command.
- Insert industry standard parts into your assembly designs.
- Create production-ready drawings in model space and layouts
of structured and non-structured geometry and insert title blocks and
- Notate a drawing through the creation and editing of
dimensions, hole charts, fits lists, and mechanical symbols.
- Explain how to create and edit a bill of materials, parts
list, and balloons.
- Describe the tools that you can use to verify whether or
not the standard parts or custom parts within your design meet or exceed the
requirements for operational use.
- Exchange data between CAD systems in the form of Mechanical
DWG and IGES files and create Mechanical drawings using Inventor Link.
- Create a custom drafting standard and drawing template that
includes the configuration settings for layers, object properties, symbols,
text, BOM, parts list, balloons, and other annotation tools.
- Getting Started
- Object Property and Layer Management
- Organizing Drawing Geometry
- Tools for Creating Key Geometry
- Tools for Manipulating Geometry
- Creating Drawing Sheets
- Dimensioning and Annotating Your Drawings
- Bill of Materials, Parts Lists, and Balloons
- Design Calculations
- Leveraging Your Existing Data
- Mechanical Options for the CAD Manager
Prerequisites: This course is designed for users new to
AutoCAD Mechanical. It is recommended that you have:
- A basic understanding of mechanical drafting or design.
- A working knowledge of AutoCAD®.
- A working knowledge of Microsoft® Windows® XP or
Microsoft® Windows® Vista.
Electrical Fundamentals (Three Days)
AutoCAD Electrical Fundamentals covers the indispensable
core topics for working with AutoCAD Electrical. The training manual provides
instruction on how to use many of the software's powerful electrical drawing
creation tools and also focuses on creating schematic drawings, panel drawings,
and PLC/IO circuits using automated commands for symbol insertion, component
tagging, wire numbering, and drawing modification.
Students learn how to build intelligent ladder diagrams and
panel layouts, and how to leverage this intelligence. The course provides an
overview of many AutoCAD Electrical utilities designed to enable users to
quickly build and manage electrical-controls drawings. Students learn how to
create electrical-controls production drawings. All exercises and datasets
through hands-on exercises are based on the JIC (US) standard.
Course Objectives: After completing this course, you
will be able to:
- Describe the AutoCAD Electrical user interface and follow
the basic electrical project design workflow.
- Manage projects and the multiple drawing and inter-drawing
relationships contained in electrical projects.
- Insert wires, add wire numbers, manage circuits, and create
point-to-point wiring diagrams and drawings.
- Insert and annotate schematic symbols.
- Edit drawings project-wide with commands that are specific
to the electrical design environment.
- Extract information from drawings to create Bill of
Material, Wiring, and other reports.
- Create and annotate panel layout drawings with lists of
components that are extracted from schematic drawings and with other
specific panel layout tools, such as the Terminal Strip Editor.
- Basic Workflow
- Project Basics
- Schematic Wiring
- Schematic Components
- Schematic Editing
- Schematic Reports
- Panel Layouts
Prerequisites: This course is designed for new AutoCAD
Electrical users. It is recommended that you have:
- A background in electrical design (drafting and design
experience is a plus).
- A working knowledge of AutoCAD.
- A working knowledge of Microsoft Windows XP or Microsoft
Inventor Fundamentals (Four Days)
This hands-on course covers the Autodesk Inventor capabilities
used to create, inspect, and edit part and assembly models of moderate
complexity and document those designs with drawing views. It instructs users in
best practices for parametric design philosophy through a hands-on,
practice-intensive curriculum. Users acquire the knowledge needed to complete
the process of designing models from conceptual sketching, through to solid
modeling, assembly design, and drawing production.
The Inventor interface
Drawing 2D sketches
Constraining and dimensioning sketches
Creating 3D parts
Creating drawings and views of parts
Placing and constraining parts in assemblies
Designing assembly mechanisms
Creating drawings and views of assemblies
Prerequisites: It is recommended that you have a
working knowledge of:
- Mechanical design and construction documentation
- Microsoft Windows XP or Vista or Windows 7.
Inventor Advanced (Three Days)
Autodesk Inventor Advanced is the second in
a series of courses on Inventor from The Datamat Group. The goal of this class
is to build on the skills acquired in the Inventor Introduction to Solid
Modeling course by taking students to a higher level of productivity when
designing part models and when creating and
working with assemblies in Inventor. Students will also learn about
various drawing tools.
Prerequisites: The class assumes a mastery of Inventor
basics as taught in Inventor Introduction to Solid Modeling. Students should
know how to create and edit parts, use work features, and create and annotate
drawing views, etc. It is also recommended you have a working
knowledge of Microsoft Windows XP or Vista.
Inventor Update (One Day)
Autodesk Inventor Update is the
ideal training course for users that are upgrading from the previous release. It
introduces the new concepts and techniques of solid modeling that have been
introduced and focuses on the enhancements made to the User
Interface, Part Modeling, Sketching, Assembly Modeling, Drawing, and Sheet Metal
- Interface Enhancements
- Part Modeling Enhancements
- Sketching Enhancements
- Assembly Modeling Enhancements
- Drawing Enhancements
- Sheet Metal Modeling Enhancements
Prerequisites: The course assumes familiarity with the
previous release of Inventor and a working knowledge of Microsoft Windows XP or Vista.
