Join John Helfen for an in-depth discussion in this video Placing views, part of Learning Autodesk Inventor.
On the screen you see our completed Carburetor Housing, and we're going to use this part…as we look at how to work through the process of placing views.…To begin, we need to create a new drawing file.…To do that we can select the Application menu, and then click on New to bring up the Create…New File dialog box.…We're going to go ahead and create a Standard.idw file.…We'll select that in the dialog box and click Create.…By doing this, Inventor creates our first sheet in our drawing for us.…You can see that it's preconfigured a drawing border and a title bar on a C size sheet of paper.…
There are a couple of ways to begin creating drawing views.…The initial view is called the Base view.…You can find the Base view under the Place Views tab in the Create panel.…But instead of doing that, I'm going to use the Marking menu.…You can also right-click and select Base view there to initiate your Base view creation.…By doing so, the Drawing view dialog box is presented, and there's a few things in here…that we want to talk about so that we better understand the process and how to move forward.…
