IMAGINiT Technologies have released two Autodesk 2009 software training guides: Revit Structure 2009 Fundamentals and Inventor 2009 Sheet Metal Design from their courseware division, ASCENT - Center for Technical Knowledge.
ASCENT's new training guide, Revit Structure 2009 Fundamentals, provides another extension to the company's existing Revit curriculum offering.
The course teaches the concepts and principles from building design through construction documentation.
Specifically, the curriculum delivers the tools that users require in order to effectively create, document, and print a variety of Revit Structure 2009 parametric models.
Students are exposed to the interface, available design tools and the steps to creating a new structural project including Architectural Overlay creation, beginning a structural model and adding and reinforcing foundations.
Framing systems such as beams, brace frames, flooring and elevator shafts, stairs and ramps are also covered along with the annotation object styles for creating them.
The updated Inventor 2009 Sheet Metal Design training guide introduces users to the concepts and techniques of sheet metal modelling in Autodesk Inventor 2009.
The course focuses on features specific to the process of sheet metal part creation and editing, flat pattern generation and design drawing documentation.
Specific topics in the training guide include design processes, sheet metal styles, rules and parameters and creating commonly used sheet metal features such as flanges, hems, folds and bends.
