To quickly familiarize yourself with the most critical aspects of Inventor one can do no better than using this guide...

Great book, nice project to learn the CAD tool.

I was very amazed at how much info was packed into this book...

Autodesk Inventor basic tutorial for beginner
For beginners, the best way to get to know Autodesk® Inventor® is to make a design of any simple device, which will shown all the main steps of creating and editing a design. The Autodesk Inventor software is ready for operation immediately after installation and is pre-configured to create designs in line with the general guidelines of the ANSI standard, allowing you to immediately start creating 3D models and associated documentation 2D.

This tutorial is intended for beginners, for people for whom this is the first contact with Autodesk Inventor software. However, individuals who are familiar with the program will find here useful information. No additional files are required to complete the design described - all files will be created using the exercises in sequence. Exercises presented in this manual have been implemented in Autodesk Inventor 2017; however, most of this manual is also compatible with previous versions of Autodesk Inventor software.

This is a good set of exercises for beginners who will learn here the main principles of designing in Autodesk Inventor and will achieve a solid foundation for developing their skills.
If you correctly follow all the exercises contained in this manual, you will know how to:
  • Modeling simple singular mechanical parts in a separate part file or in the context of an assembly.
  • Compose parts in the assembly and control their mutual position.
  • Insert standard parts from the Content Center and create bolted connections.
  • Drive the assembly constraints to verify the kinematics of the assembly model.
  • Prepare a basic visual presentation of designed product containing rendered illustrations and the video animation .
  • Prepare an exploded presentation of the product.
  • Create a technical drawings of the project, including the basic views, dimensions, descriptions, parts list.
  • Create drawings with exploded views for presentations or assemble instructions.
  • Cerate a new product design based on an existing design with associated drawings, rendered illustrations and presentations video
  • Carry out basic administrative operations on files with maintaining files relationships.
