Course Content


A shell is a three-dimensional, curved surface that is typically enclosed by an outer boundary called the "exterior" and an inner boundary called the "interior." It may have one or more openings. Shells are used in architecture, engineering, and manufacturing.

The Shell feature removes material from the inside of a part, leaving a hollow space with defined thickness walls. To create a shell opening, select faces can be deleted.

Inventor is an Autodesk software application that empowers engineers and designers to create the digital models they need to manufacture functional prototypes, industrial parts, architectural designs, and more. Inventor has a number of different file types that are used for creating metal, plastic, ceramic and other types of materials.

The most common use of the Autodesk Inventor's surfaces is to create shell objects which are configured to match the required surface properties. These surfaces are then used as a base for generating a thread that can be used in many Autodesk Inventor applications.
