Microburst Training Autodesk® Inventor®: Working with 3D Annotations Model-Based Definition

November 27, 2018 at 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST


inventor badges 2019


During this half-day course designed for experienced Autodesk Inventor users, you’ll learn how to create 3D annotations to support the visual presentation of annotations in 3D PDF format and a Model-based Definition (MBD) workflow. The geometry designed in a 3D CAD modeling environment is created perfectly. During the manufacturing stage, it is not possible to achieve the same perfection. Variations in size, feature location, and orientation are unavoidable. This class instructs students on how to use the tools in Autodesk Inventor 2018 to create 3D annotations that communicate dimensional and GD&T data, hold/thread notes, surface texture requirements, and informational text-based annotations; all of which aim to improve manufacturing accuracy. Additionally, you’ll learn how to share 3D annotated models as 3D PDFs, as STEP files for use by other software applications, or in 2D drawing views.

Learning Objectives:

  • Creating dimensional annotations
  • Creating hole/thread note annotations
  • Creating surface texture annotations
  • Creating text-based annotations to a model to communicate additional modeling information
  • Creating tolerance features to a model
  • Using the Tolerance Advisor to review informational messages and warnings on the tolerance features in a model
  • Creating a general profile note annotation


Knowledge of GD&T required. The international GD&T standard, ASME Y14.5M-1994, governs how annotations should be added to clearly describe the model’s intent. This class assumes knowledge of how the model is to be annotated and aims to only explain how they are added using the Autodesk Inventor software.

Who Should Attend:

This course is designed for current Inventor users who want to utilize the software to efficiently create and represent designs based on existing geometry.

Students will receive four continuing education hours. Courseware is provided. You will receive an email on Monday, November 26th with instructions on joining the online microburst training session.
