Autodesk Factory Design Suite Learning - Essentials

( Duration: 4 Days )

The Autodesk Factory Design Suite Training course instructs Participants in the best practices of developing a factory layout consisting of architectural elements and manufacturing assets. This course is an introduction to the basic practices and principles for each of the applications contained in the Autodesk Factory Design Suite.

Specific instruction is given to each of the four applications as a factory facility layout is designed from the ground up. This is designed for new or novice users to develop a general understanding of the factory layout process used by the Autodesk Factory Design Suite. It is not designed to deliver complete training in any of the core applications, but to instruct Participants in the applicable commands generally used in factory layout design.

The Autodesk Factory Design Suite consists of the following four Applications:

  • AutoCAD Architecture
  • Autodesk Inventor
  • The Autodesk Factory Design Utilities
  • Autodesk Navisworks

  • As an introductory class, Autodesk Factory Suite, does not assume prior knowledge of any 3D modeling or CAD software
  • Participants need to be experienced with the Windows operating system and a background in drafting of 3D parts is recommended
  • A familiarity with basic AutoCAD commands is assumed
