Library Update: Autodesk Inventor 2020 Tutorials Now Available


You asked and we listened — discover a brand new library of Inventor 2020 tutorials on the SolidProfessor platform.

If you couldn’t tell by our company name, SolidProfessor got its start making video tutorials for SOLIDWORKS. Nearly two decades later, our course library has grown and we now cover over 30 different CAD, CAM, and BIM software and other engineering design topics.

But now it’s time to step it up again.

Autodesk Inventor is used by millions of engineers, designers, and other professionals, especially those who work with complex designs on large teams. Previously, our library contained a number of Inventor tutorials, but the feedback from our members was that they wanted even more!

So that’s why we’re launching a full set of new online courses for Inventor 2020 this month! We’ve taken our Inventor library from a few key lessons to a comprehensive set of 450+ Inventor tutorials for beginner to advanced users. This brand new Inventor training is available on the platform now.

What’s included in this Inventor 2020 tutorials release?

This launch is a total overhaul of our course offerings for Autodesk Inventor with a primary focus on the 2020 software version. Here’s a breakdown of what that entails:

  • 12 new full-length Inventor 2020 courses
  • 450+ new video-based Inventor tutorials
  • 20+ total hours of Inventor training content
  • 5 new Inventor Technical Certificates to earn
  • Bonus: Practice tests for the Inventor User Certification exam
