Many drafters and designers are stumped when faced with having to build a part with a curved, organic shape. In this course, Inventor Essentials - Organic Shapes Using Loft, you'll how to use the loft tool in Inventor 2017 (also found in most other 3D modeling engineering software packages) to build even the most challenging freeform shapes. First, you'll learn the background of the loft tool and get a quick summary of how it works. Then, you'll explore in-depth exactly how loft builds organic shapes using its diverse toolset. Finally, you'll be shown how to build 3D geometry using the skeletal modeling method, which uses master sketches to drive the overall shape of the part. When you're finished with this Inventor course, you'll not only know how to build any part in 3D, but you'll be the go-to person in your office for building the most complex parts. Software required: Inventor 2017.
