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)
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...
I use the Key Generator from the Design Accelerator and drag the red arrow to position the key under the gear.
Numbers change, and when i position the key they disappear.
There is no way to input a...
With the design Accelerator i made a pair of spur gears, but i want to make one of them one piece with a longer shaft.
I mean i want to cut the teeth from a thicker shaft, and they shouldn't extend...
I am drawing a ribbon cable in between 2 connectors.
I specify Start Pin 1 &2.
The problem is: how do I make the ribbon cable enter leave and enter each connector at a 0-degree angle?
As it is...
If I create a part in the 2012 version of Inventor, will it be compatible with the 2011 version?
I want to erase the third round extrusion.
I edit the sketch and try to erase the circle that is under constrained, but get an error message, why?
I deleted the vertical constraint that it had, and...
I just started using Inventor 2012 at home, though we've been using it in my engineering class for a while. I have very little knowledge about the program, but I am so eager to learn all about it....
I have an assembly that I need some help constraining the legs to the machine. What format should I save it to so that someone can open it up and look at what I have done.
I used the Spur Gear Design Accelerator and made 2 gears, now i want to rotate one of them round it's axis.
If i use the Rotate Component command it rotates, in space, the gear, not round anything
I recently downloaded the Student version of Autodesk Inventor Professional 2012 for Windows Vista 32Bit.
The problem I have with installing this is that it will initialize, and it will get to...
Assume I need to create a 3" dia, 10" length cylinder. On the cylinder surface (1.5" from the center line), I need to make three .1" dia holes perpendicular to the center axis. They are at 3", 7"...
Hello, i have installed autodesk inventor 2012 version. Costructed basic metal construction and willing to test it for strenght. But when i enter Environments menu, there is no Stress analysis button...
I'm getting to grips with sheet metal. I know I can use the Contour Roll command to create a curved plate, however if I do it this way, when I create my flat pattern my plate is more than 100x100.
Using Inventor 2013
I cant to add a flange to a slightly twisted sheet metal part. I created the part by lofting between two lines from a 3d sketch. Then thickened to my sheet metal default...
Okay, I derived this part as a surface body, thickened to .120" (my sheet metal defaults are the same,) and then create a flat pattern. All of my other parts have flattened out just fine and...
I made parts in a top down design in an assembly, then moved all the files to another folder.
Now the assembly opens good, but the changes i made in the assembly before the move of the files aren't...
I recently downloaded a .SAT part from 3dcontentcentral.com and i would like to use it in an assembly i am creating. Problem is, once i pulled it into Inventor, I am unable to...
I can't find the option to make weld symbols in a weldment assembly.
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.
