Instant Design: Fundamentals of Autodesk Inventor® 7, another text in the Instant Design and Drafting series, continues the tradition of delivering technical information in a quick and easy format. Although this book does not attempt to cover all the complexities of the program, it does offer a firm grounding in the basics of part and assembly creation from sketch to production drawings.
Autodesk Inventor is a 3D, feature-based, parametric modeler that allows the user to create models of 3D parts from 2D sketches, then to use these parts to create detailed drawings and assemblies. The power of the program lies in its parametric abilities to alter an existing design to be used for a variety of applications. At any time, you can change the shape and size of the features that contain the part. And, once a part has been created, two-dimensional drawings of the part in various views can be created automatically by applying drafting standards such as hidden features and auxiliary views, as well as notations for typical features such as countersinks and counterbores.
The aim of this text is to give you information and hands-on practical experience so that you will be able to make use of this complex interface in the most efficient manner possible. To this end
The layout of the book is explained in Chapter 1, but we feel it is essential to reemphasize the various components that comprise a chapter.
Remember that the more you put into it in effort, study, and exercise completion, the more you'll take away from it in learning. It's up to you.
