Video tutorials

Developing a formula body

By leveraging Autodesk Inventor's Hybrid Modeling capabilities you can develop complex shapes much faster than using surface tools. For Class A surfacing Alias Automotive is ideal but in many cases the tools in Inventor will suffice. See other videos in this series.

Product design tutorials


Learn what lightweighting is, and why it’s important for sustainability; when you should lightweight; and other strategies you can use to reduce material use. View the full tutorial.

Simulation for sustainable design

Here you will learn the basics of how and when to use simulation for sustainable design. View the full tutorial.

Energy efficient design

Understanding energy is critical to sustainable design. Learn what energy is, how it is converted into useful forms, and what engineers can do to create more energy efficient designs. View the full tutorial.

Materials selection

Material selection is an incredibly important aspect of creating sustainable products. The Autodesk Eco Materials Adviser can help you make more informed material choices with data about the embodied energy, embodied CO2, embodied water, cost, RoHS compliance, and physical material properties. View the full tutorial.

Aristotle Racing Team

Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece)

"Our goal for ART-12 is to design and construct a new, more competitive race car, in order to participate in two races: in Germany in August and in Italy in September. We strongly believe that with hard work and the positive morale that exists among the team members, we can achieve an even better place in the overall classification and maintain our high place in the cost and acceleration event." 

– Dimitrios Kontses, Team Leader

ATHENE Racing Team

Munich University of the Federal Armed Forces (Germany)

"With Autodesk offering our team their broad range of software products, we were able to easily develop and design our first car. Working with Autodesk Inventor Professional 2012 is intuitive, effective, and a great convenience for us as a new FS team. A major advantage of having Autodesk as a partner is the trainings they offer with their software. We were able to work with their products from the beginning, and any questions that came up were either answered at the trainings or, in urgent cases, we simply called one of their employees–anytime. With their software, training, and support, we were able to develop our first car in less than one year." 

– Alexander Atzberger, ATHENE Racing Team

Hongik University (Rep. of Korea)

"The Autodesk Alias design tool is an unrivalled tool in the automotive design field. Unlike other tools, it is outstanding in creating surfaces, and it is particularly effective in creating the complex curvature you see in human contours as well as in cars." 

– Ahn Dre, Team Leader
