Join John Helfen for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring initial drawing creation, part of Up and Running with Autodesk Inventor.
Now that we know how to create parts and assemblies, it's time to talk about how to document your designs.…In order to get a part or an assembly manufactured, you're almost always going to be required…to create a drawing for manufacturing.…To create a drawing, we're going to start by hitting the New button found in the Getting…Started tab under the Launch panel.…Because IDWs are the default drawing format in Inventor, we'll select the standard.idw…file type, and Inventor will configure our initial drawing for us.…Here on the screen you can see our initial drawing sheet.…
This represents the piece of paper that your views are going to be printed on.…On that sheet you can see a border has been added, and also a title block, and just like…parts and assemblies, the browser represents what you are seeing on the screen.…On the left you can see that Sheet 1 has been created for us, we have a default border that…has been added, and a default title block.…Above that in the browser you have a folder called Drawing Resources.…
