    Lesson 1: 
    Creating Profiles

    • Learn how to create and constrain a 2D sketch. This sketch profile will be used to create a base feature. 

    Lesson 2: 
    Creating Basic Features

    • Learn how to create base features to model a part, refine the part, and achieve the design intent. 

    Lesson 3: 
    Reviewing and Modifying 

    • Learn how to measure different parameters of a part and how to modify the part. 

    Lesson 4: 
    Finalizing Design

    • Learn how to use parameters, formulas, reuse features, and create a rendered image of the part. 

    Lesson 5: 
    Creating and Managing Products

    • Learn how to create a simple product structure, add components, position them, analyze the weight distribution, and create new versions of the component. 

    Lesson 6: 
    Creating Drawing

    • Learn how to create and modify views in a drawing, add dimensions and annotations, and then print it. 

    Lesson 7: 
    Master Exercise: Mechanical Design Fundamentals

    • In this module, you will create a part, review, and modify it. You will also assemble the other parts to complete the assembly and then create its drawing.
