A quantum leap in Computer Aided Design technology software has been made with Autodesk® Inventor® software. Not only is designing now fun and highly accurate, we can now visualize and test our assemblies before we build a prototype. Designing speeds are increased, giving you the designer more time to improve and enhance your design. Fully rendered three dimensional part designs, assemblies, orthographic drawings and animations are now easy to produce! Automated 3D part parameters can be programmed into your Autodesk Inventor models providing incredibly fast part designs production.

Autodesk Inventor 7 Visual Fast Start follows this high speed concept by providing a text with highly visible step-by-step instructions and supporting video clips to give you an incredibly fastest learning system! Using Autodesk Inventor 7 Visual Fast Start you will quickly be come comfortable using the Autodesk Inventor software, and productive in record time.

Each Chapter of Autodesk Inventor 7 Visual Fast Start has 4 parts:

  • A step-by-step tutorial of each concept and command
  • A "for Deeper Understanding" section designer to provide extra detail.
  • Practice drawings to reinforce and apply the commands you have learned.
  • Video clips demonstrating the chapter commands.

Each Chapter contains a "Chapter instructions" page designed to guide you through the best sequence of steps to understand the Autodesk Inventor commands and concepts.
