In this chapter, you will gain an understanding of –The Getting Started screen –Reasons for which a project file is used –How to create a project file for a single user –Autodesk Vault –Different file types used in Autodesk Inventor –Application options –The Help system –The user interface –How to issue commands –Different viewing tools Chapter 1 - Objectives
Getting Started Screen Welcome –What is new in the current release –Learning options Expand Your Knowledge –Information about advanced functionality in Autodesk Inventor
How to Create and Open Files New –Template for a new part, assembly, presentation file, sheet metal part, or drawing Open –Open an existing Autodesk Inventor file Projects –Create a new project –Make an existing project current
Projects in Autodesk Inventor Projects Overview – Most designs involve more than a single file: parts, subassembly, top level assembly, presentation, and drawings –Projects are files that contain search paths to find files that are required for a project –Autodesk Inventor always has a project named Default. The default projects’s path is located relative to the folder that the referencing file is in
Projects in Autodesk Inventor Project Setup –Plan your project folder structure Project File Search Options –Inventor stores cross-file reference information –Resolves information to find referenced file
Projects in Autodesk Inventor Project File Search Options –Included File, Workspace & Local Search Paths –Workgroup Search Paths More file management sophistication –Library Search Paths Store standard company and third-party models –Project File Search Order Library Paths Workspace Local Search Paths in the order listed in the project file Workgroup Search Paths in the order listed in the project file Folder containing the parent document
Projects in Autodesk Inventor File Resolution –Resolve Link
Projects in Autodesk Inventor Creating Projects –.ipj file extension –Types of project Single User Vault Project –Available only if Vault is installed
Projects in Autodesk Inventor Project wizard –Project Name –Location –Libraries Editing Projects
Autodesk Vault Available on the Autodesk Inventor CD Autodesk Vault enhances the data- management process by –File check in / out –Manage any electronic file –Track file versions –Track team member access –Copy designs –Enhanced search capabilities
File Information File Types –Part.ipt 2D or 3D –Assembly.iam Consist of single part, multiple parts, or subassemblies –Presentation.ipn Shows parts of an assembly, exploded in different states –Sheet Metal.ipt Part files that have sheet metal environment loaded
File Information File Types –Drawing.idw Contain 2D projected drawing views of parts, assemblies and/or presentation files –Project.ipj ASCII-based text files, contain search paths to locations of all files in project –iFeature.ide Contains complete parts, 3D features, or 2D sketches, that inserted into a part file –Design Views (.idv) Private Design Views are configuration files in which saves component visibility, component selection status, color settings, zoom magnification, and viewing angle of an assembly.
