Join John Helfen for an in-depth discussion in this video Placing components, part of Up and Running with Autodesk Inventor.
In this movie we are going to begin creating our assembly file.…The first step in creating an assembly is to place components into an assembly file.…We can do this by starting a new assembly file.…If we go to the Getting Started tab under the Launch panel, we can click New to bring…up the Create New file dialog box.…Earlier in the course we talked about file types, and if you remember we do have the…ability to create a couple different assembly types.…We have Weldments, and we have Standard assemblies.…Because we are not creating a Weldment we are going to select Standard.iam and click…Create to begin a new assembly file.…
On the screen you can now see our blank assembly file.…An assembly file is essentially just a container that holds the individual parts that are going to be assembled.…To begin placing parts into this assembly, we have two options.…We can go to the Assemble tab under the Component panel and select Place, or we can right-click…in the Graphics window and select Place Components from the marking menu.…
