    Can you handle the pressure of inventing for civil? This is a down-and-dirty course in Inventor software and Inventor LT software for civil engineers, civil designers, and civil CAD managers. We'll cover the skills needed in Inventor software to create parts and assemblies specifically for infrastructure projects. We'll then add those parts to Parts Editor and export them to gravity or pressure networks in both AutoCAD Civil 3D software and InfraWorks software. During the class, we'll design a curb inlet in 3 parts, import it into Parts Editor, and place it into an assembly. From the assemblies and families in Parts Editor, we'll create an AutoCAD Civil 3D Parts catalog. Lastly, we'll import the new catalog into AutoCAD Civil 3D and apply the new part to a storm drainage system. As a bonus, we'll repeat all these steps and show you how to import the new part into InfraWorks and apply it to a storm drainage system there. If the gravity of your infrastructure designs is serious enough that you need to reinvent parts, this class is for you!
