Autodesk Inventor allows you to create complex assemblies quickly, but assembling those designs without instructions can be difficult. Learn how storyboards can be used to organize and gather specific steps to build clear and professional assembly instructions. With the proper instructions even the most complex design can be made easy to build.
- [Voiceover] We've now finished our first Storyboard.…Our first Storyboard tells the story…of how to remove the screws from the back of the nose cone.…If we rotate around so that we can see the screws…on the back of the nose cone…and we hit Play on the timeline…you can see that we tweaked the components,…all three of them, out of the nose cone,…the bottom two moved down, and all three moved to the left.…So that is the complete story…of how to remove the screws from the nose cone.…What it doesn't tell is the complete story…of how to disassemble the nose cone and the prop as well…to complete the full cycle.…
We could continue by building additional tweaks…in this Storyboard but a better method…is to create a second Storyboard…that way each Storyboard is a discreet set of steps…that accomplishes a specific task.…You can then use multiple Storyboards…to tell a larger process for taking something apart.…In order to create a new Storyboard…we have a couple of options.…We can either go to the Presentation tab…under the Workshop panel and select New Storyboard…
