Join Thom Tremblay for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Autodesk Inventor: Accelerating Design Using Standards.
- [Instructor] To get the most out of this course, be sure to download the exercise files and expand them to your hard drive. I've expanded the exercise files to a folder on my desktop. When I open the folder, I can see that there are sub-folders for each of the chapters. Within the sub-folder, is all of the data that I need for that particular chapter. There is also a project file. This project file is critical to working with Autodesk Inventor.
Inside of Autodesk Inventor, I can find the Projects tool and open it. I can then browse for the project file and select it. I'll make sure that it's active and when it's done, this will ensure that when I need to open a file in Inventor, it goes to the correct location and can find all of the associated files when editing an assembly.
With your files in place, and your project selected in Inventor, you're now ready to begin.
- Accessing the standards-based tools
- Placing and editing a bolted connection
- Placing, editing, and reusing frame members
- Power transmission tools
- Adding a compression spring to an assembly
