Instruction sheet for Autodesk Inventor: Basic shapes, Revloves and Sweeps

Instruction and Help sheet for Autodesk Inventor. This double sided sheet explains the steps in both written and pictorial form for creating basic shapes, adding filets and chamfers to edges as well as how to create a revolves and sweeps in the program. Great resource for letting students explore the program and build on the skills on the sheet. Goes through the basics for anyone to follow and more complex modelling techniques. Great resource for less confident users of the program to aid their own ability and get to grips with the basic functions quickly. See my other resources for a help sheet on assembling parts in Autodesk Inventor.
