    What would you do if Autodesk, Inc., removed the Save As command from the next version of Inventor software? Once you’re familiar with Inventor software’s deriving functionality, you probably wouldn’t even notice if the Save As command went missing. During this class we will explore what the Derive command is, why you would want to use it, and how to use it effectively. (Spoiler Alert: it's really pretty simple once you understand how it works.) If you’re already comfortable with Inventor software 3D modeling but want to be more efficient, accurate, and flexible in your workflow, come to this class to get your Inventor D(e)river License.
