Autodesk Inventor 2012 for Designers

Autodesk Inventor 2012 for Designers

This textbook introduces the reader to Autodesk Inventor 2012, the world's leading parametric solid modeling software. In this textbook, the author emphasizes on the solid modeling techniques that improve the productivity and efficiency of the user. Also, the chapters are structured in a pedagogical sequence that makes this textbook very effective in learning the features and capabilities of the software. The following are some additional useful features of this book.

This textbook consists of 18 pedagogically sequenced chapters covering the Part, Assembly, Drafting, Presentation, Sheet Metal,and Weldment, environments of Autodesk Inventor 2012. In this edition, a new chapter on Inventor Fusion has been added that deals with direct modeling techniques. Every chapter begins with a command section that provides a brief information of the Autodesk Inventor tools. Every chapter provides you with the tutorials that are created using these commands. This approach allows the user to use this textbook initially as a learning tool and then later use it as a reference material.
