Based on the latest version of the software, Autodesk Inventor from the Top uses realistic examples, exercises, tutorials, plus more than 500 screen captures to guide readers, step-by-step, through basic sketching and solid modeling to the application of more advanced modeling techniques. Ideal for mechanical engineering professionals and students, this how-to and reference manual begins with an overview of part creation. Subsequent chapters, each building on information presented previously, lead readers through the process of using mission-critical Autodesk Inventor features and functions. Users learn to sketch, constrain and dimension 3D drawings, create and edit drawing views, and create assemblies and sub-assemblies. A variety of time saving and productivity enhancing advanced solid modeling techniques - such as derived parts and assemblies plus mass property information for active and multiple parts - are also explored in detail. Comprehensive in scope, the final chapter provides opportunities to gain valuable hands-on experience with additional Autodesk Inventor functionality, including: transcripting, migrating, importing other 3D file types, using the Design Assistant and Engineer's Notebook, and more!
