Introduction and Project Overview
(soft electronic music) Hi, everybody. My name is Dan Halsell, and I'm a computer drafter and designer from Texas. I have over 10 years' experience drafting and over six years' experience in 3-D design. My 3-D design experience is in metal manufacturing, mostly in the oilfield industry. I have many drafting skills, including designing, modeling, detailing, drawing and animating. In this course, we will use Autodesk Inventor 2013, and we will start with an assembly. I will show you how I created and constrained that assembly and then introduce you to a presentation file. I will go over how to create a presentation file and all the tools required to do so. After the presentation file, I will go over advanced model tree tools. At the end of this tutorial, you will be able to show an assembly in different levels of detail, different representations and different positions. That's a little about me and what we'll be going over in this tutorial, and I look forward to seeing you in the first lesson.
