    This class is for Inventor software users who (just occasionally!) find themselves ready to create a complex model and don't know where to start. We will cover the basics concepts of surface and curvature continuity, then look at some examples of difficult topology and how to avoid it, and then we’ll take a deep dive into the toolset for surface modeling in Inventor software. Finally we will run through a complete step-by-step example of building a model from surfaces with Inventor software from concept to solid body. This class will benefit students who find themselves modeling challenging topology with Inventor software and who want to go from hack and whack . . . to planned and perfect!

    Key Learnings

    • Learn how to use the language of curvature continuity with confidence
    • Discover Inventor software's hidden surfacing tools
    • Learn how to build complex topology from individual surface patches
    • Learn how to convert surfaces into a solid model
