Join Thom Tremblay for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Autodesk Inventor Professional: Stress Analysis Tools.
- If you're a Premium member of the lynda.com Library, you have access to the Exercise Files used throughout this course. You can download the files from the Exercise tab on the main page for this course, and then expand those files onto your desktop. Inside the Exercise Files folder you'll find several sub-folders for each chapter. Within this folder will be all of the various parts and assemblies, and other data required for the course. In addition to the folders for the chapters you'll find an additional folder for Content Center that contains all of the standard components that Inventor uses, and a critical file, which is the Autodesk Inventor project file for this course.
That is the project file that you will need to be active inside of Inventor to more easily use all of the components. Most of the movies in this course have Exercise Files that you can load so you can follow along with the same project I am working on. If you don't have access to the Exercise Files, you can follow along and use your own data. Let's get started.
