It seems Inventor is on the rise. This forum is here to introduce the wonderful world of Autodesk Inventor. Ask questions, make comments and view tutorials.
___ INVENTOR FAQ_ OCTOBER 03, 2005 ___
10/03/05 Added Multiple Hotfixes for R10 AIS and AIP. Also Augi Inventor
I have cut this out of the FAQ so specifically help/tutorial sites are listed below.
Please post any others and I will edit the post and please post any errors or broken links.

1) Where do I start ????? :oops:
Run and install the Help file CD and "getting Started CD"
2) I was trying to model a specific feature but ... ?
An excellent flash movie with intro and demos of Inventor Features. 8)
There is a possibility, somewhere in the settings, to show, aside of the dimension value in a sketch, also it's name, but i haven't found it
I have a surface I have created using several sketch commands, constraints etc. On one of those planes I want to add a shape to achieve something that will look like an upside down fried egg...
I am a quite beginner to the Inventor, especially in moving parts. I need to create rotating pulleys with belt can be v-belt or synchronous one. Shaft number one needs to power shaft number...
I have a frame assembly that I want to run a stress calc on. The load i want to apply is another part.. So I want to put the part on the frame and run an FEA with only gravity(and the weight of the...
Can anyone tell me if it is possible to export a inventor model to staad pro? if possible please let me know how to do it?
Going through Engineering Drawing with Worked Examples 1 by M.A.Parker and F.Pickup (first published 1960) and creating models as per the drawings. Got to final problem Flange Coupling (p.219-220)....
In an assembly i project a circle.
I use the new center point with the hole wizard and save the assembly and the parts.
When i move the original circle the hole doesn't move with it, and when i try...
I've recently discovered an issue with 2D sketch constraints.
When I create a sketch feature I used to get inferred constraints but now there are no inferred constraints active.
Just did a new blog post about Autodesk releasing Update 2 for Inventor 2012 SP2.
First time poster here. A lot of my google searches lead to here so I thought I'd sign up.
Challenge - I'm building an enclosure for a work project and when i rip and bend the corners...
Hello, i have a problem with creating faces on a complex sheet metal structure, sketch doctor says: Open loop found in this profile. Use Close Loop or use Edit Sketch and project geometry, add...
I would sure like some help with this please.If i can get the throat section correct the rest i can finish..I am not familiar with surfaces but i have tried to use for this section but...
Hi All. New to the forum. First time posting. I have looked through the forums briefly, but not seeing anything matching what i am looking for.
I am creating a sheet metal part. The panel...
Hello! I am having quite some difficulty figuring out a method to extrude a 3D sketch that I have projected onto my model. I am using Autodesk Inventor 2012 Professional (student edition).
I start to study the cam generator.
1. i drew an axis coincident with the z axis, but it isn't select able, only the z axis itself, from the Origin folder.
2. what are the units on...
So I've got a lot of parts that have a non-skid texture applied to them. Sure, I can model the texture - it's very simple and repetitive, basically just cross-hatching - but doing this pretty much...
I made a rectangular extrusion with a work axis which i constrained to a predefined assembly axis.
Now i use the Rotate Component tool, but it has no controls.
I want to choose the axis about which...
The gears have signs, marked with arrows.
What do the units "ul" mean?
And what does the drawing with two small circles near the Rotation mate mean? i don't know such a mate.
I make an assembly and intend to use it for the rotational constraint.
I made a cylinder and constrained it's axis to mate with the z axis of the assembly, but i also made a rectangular extrusion,...
I made a new assembly file and sketched a circle.
I didn't make it with Create Components, just started a sketch on one of the planes.
I tried to extrude it but it refuses.
What are the part...
How do I establish a relationship between a component and its mirror image, such that if I move the component, the mirrored component moves as well?
It sounds strange but i forgot how to place a constraint between two cylindrical faces.
I don't mean the insert constraint, since i want the shaft to extrude a little from the hub.
Probably, it is a very common question. How can I export BOM with thumbnails?
Apparently, Inventor doesn't have this feature!
In that case, I think it is a serious problem with...
Did a new blog post about Update 1 for Inventor 2013 SP 1.1 being released.
I am trying to make a cam that drives a disk at 90 degrees to the cam.When i use constrates I can get it to rotate in a continuous motion,but I only want the disk to move when it is in contact with...
Use this control to limit the display of threads to those newer than the specified time frame.
Allows you to choose the data by which the thread list will be sorted.
Order threads in...
Note: when sorting by date, 'descending order' will show the newest results first.
