Learn T-Splines modelling with Autodesk Inventor Freeform

Shh. Don’t tell anyone. Did you know that surface modelling just got a LOT easier ;)

Let’s face it, you have to put quite a few hours in before you get proficient at surface modelling. It takes time to get good enough to enjoy working with surfaces.

If you find surface modelling to be too structured and rigid, you may be in luck. Autodesk just created a brand new way of surface modelling called ‘Freeform’ that is designed just for you.

Autodesk Inventor ‘Freeform’ technology is based on T-Splines, a subdivision modelling tool originally released for Rhino and subsequently acquired by Autodesk.

You will learn:

  • How to create T-Splines surfaces from ‘Primitive’ starting shapes.
  • How to edit T-Splines surfaces to get the shape you want.
  • Strategies for controlling ‘T-Points’ and ‘Star Points’ in your design.

Paul MunfordIn this Autodesk Inventor T-Splines training course, expert author Paul Munford teaches you how to create and work with T-Splines in Autodesk Inventor. This course is designed for users that already have a basic working knowledge of Inventor.

You will start by learning about the subdivision modeling primer, including CVs, control polygons, and troubleshooting T-Splines. Paul will then teach you how to use the T-Spline tools, such as how to add and remove symmetry from T-Spline surfaces, insert, sharpen, and crease edges, and add bridges and tunnels.

Finally, this video tutorial will then teach you how to apply your knowledge of T-Splines by working on three projects: a spoon, a mug, and a saw. Once you have completed this computer based training course, you will have an in-depth understanding of how to create and use T-Splines in Inventor, and be able to apply this knowledge to your own projects.

Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
