I have spend the past few days trying to find digestible tutorials for out-and-out beginners in Inventor. There are the tutorials which come with AI15 - the video ones - which clearly show the abilities of the tutor, but dazzle me . Some of these appear to be attempting to present something like the concept of relativity in a three-minute video. There are a host of PDF tutorials which, I have no doubt, will be of inestimable value when I have a toddler's grasp of AI and would like to move from walk to run . Both types are written by well-intentioned folk who have simply forgotten that, in AI terms, I am barely at the crawling stage. One tutorial includes this warning: Before starting this tutorial, you should have been able to: • Construct, constraint and dimension sketches • Project geometry on sketch planes • Extrude sketched profiles • Revolve sketched profiles • Loft sketched profiles • Understand the concepts of work and placed features • Understand how to manipulate the history tree in the browser Far be it from me to criticise the author, rather I commend the author's clarity of thought because this list encapsulates what a beginner is looking for. The author is saying, "This tutorial is not for rank beginners - this is moving up a stage!" Unfortunately, I am a rank beginner and I want to learn the things on the list. It is fundamental concepts like this I have to master before I can move on to more impressive things. Can somebody point me towards a BEGINNER'S tutorial for Autodesk Inventor? Thanks
