A complete tutorial for the real-world application of AutodeskInventor, plus video instruction on DVD

Used to design everything from airplanes to appliances, AutodeskInventor is the industry-leading 3D mechanical design software.This detailed tutorial and reference covers practical applicationsto help you solve design problems in your own work environment,allowing you to do more with less.

It also addresses topics that are often omitted from otherguides, such as Inventor Professional modules, design tactics forlarge assemblies, using 2D and 3D data from other CAD systems, anda detailed overview of the Inventor utility tools such as DesignAssistant and Task Scheduler that you didn't even know you had.

Teaches the most popular 3D mechanical design software in thecontext of real-world workflows and work environments Provides an overview of the Inventor 2010 ribbon Interface,Inventor design concepts, and advanced information onproductivity-boosting and visualization tools Offers crucial information on data exchange, includingSolidWorks, Catia, Pro-E, and others. Shares details on documentation, including explodedpresentation files, simple animations, rendered animations andstills with Inventor Studio, and sheet metal flat patterns Covers Inventor, Inventor Professional, and Inventor LT Includes a DVD with before-and-after tutorial files, asearchable PDF of the book, innovative video tutorials for eachchapter, and more

Mastering Autodesk Inventor teaches you to get the mostfrom the software and provides a reference to help you on the job,allowing you to utilize the tools you didn't even know you had toquickly achieve professional results.

Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials arenot included as part of eBook file.
