    Idea Beginner Tutorials

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I am totally new to inventor but need to learn it fast!
    I am a technology teacher who has been assigned a class to teach Inventor to and I havent a clue,
    I have inventor professional 2012 loaded at home but the school computers have inventor professional 2009 installed.

    I am looking for some tutorials which go through the making of simple products such as a pen or a pencil sharpener for example to more complex models.

    i have searched online but with no luck does anyone have any links?

    thanks in advance

    (this for 2010 and later http://home.pct.edu/~jmather/skillsusa%20university.pdf )

    These tutorials are intended to be for advanced users - but they are step-by-step, so they might be usable by beginners (since I supply the sketches).

    Keep in mind that Inventor files are not backward compatible - anything you do in 2012 you will not be able to open in 2009 (unless you File>Save As>Save Copy as type STEP (*.stp).

    Just watch out for the Routed Systems and Simulation tutorials, you won't be ready for those for a couple of years. Advanced stuff.

    Welcome to the forum annien, I changed the title of the thread for you, can you make sure you don't start a thread with the title 'HELP' as people who search the forum will not find this post.
    USING AUTOCAD 2015 AND INVENTOR 2015, ALIAS 2015 SHOWCASE 2015.

    If in doubt scale and don't ask!
