Inventor – Intensive Course

This is a intensive course for you who want to work with Inventor. It is a prerequisite that you previously have worked in Inventor or equivalent 3D programs before. You will learn how to add 3D-CAD to 2D workflows, drawing techniques, create designs, design drawings and present these in print.

Inventor – Intensive Course


During the Inventor intensive course, you will learn to understand and use Inventor. During the course you will learn drawing techniques, create design, drawings and compilations, all with a focus on the right methodology so that you can increase your productivity.

Cadcraft is part of Autodesk Learning Partner and has certified course leaders in Autodesk software. Find out more about Autodesk Learning Partner here!

Course description

The course includes a one-year subscription of e-learning, which we deliver in collaboration with CAD-Learning. With e-learning, you get access to web-based training within Inventor, but also many of Autodesk’s other software such as AutoCAD, NavisWorks and Revit.

As a course participant, you get a playlist with reviews of the most basic functions in Inventor. We want you to go through the playlist before you come to us and educate yourself. The playlist takes about 10-12 hours to complete. Then we do not need to spend as much time on basics and which buttons you should press during the course. Instead, we focus more on methodology and Best Practice.

Target audience

The course is aimed at those who want to learn how to work in Inventor. The course is designed so that you, regardless of industry, background or area of ​​use, will be able to satisfy the course. The course is aimed at those with a good CAD habit who need a faster review of Inventor.

Objective with Inventor intensive course

After the course, you must have sufficient knowledge to get started and work independently with Inventor.

The goal after completing the course is that you should be able to:


  • First how Inventor works and handle modeling in 3D, at a basic level.

User interface

  • Understand and customize the interface to your needs at a basic level.

Drawing technique

  • Use the right methodology to create and modify models or drawings in an efficient way and understand the flow between individual models, compilations and drawings.

3D parties

  • Create or edit 3D parts and individual models in Inventor.

Design drawings

  • Design 2D drawings based on created models, both individual parts and assemblies.


  • Create or edit compilations and manage settings for these.

Manage BOM and display views

  • Make correct settings for BOM in drawings and manage previews of the compilation content.


The exercises are pedagogically designed so that you can practice design in Inventor. The focus is on the right methodology for you to learn to model from the beginning in the most efficient way possible combined with mass training so that you can effectively repeat basic functions in the program.

Previous knowledge

Basic knowledge in drawing technology is a requirement, which means that you must know what a drawing is and what it should look like. It is also a requirement that you are familiar with working in 3D.

Course material

We do not use a course book, but you will receive a playlist from E-learning that you must have gone through before the course starts.
